Finland stops recruiting students from developing world

Several Finnish higher education institutions have decided to no longer stage entrance exams in developing nations. They say many students recruited from there face financial difficulties in Finland.
A quarter of Nepal's population lives below the poverty line, and this is why people like Sandip Ranjit leave for greener pastures. Today Ranjit studies property management at Laurea polytechnic in Espoo.
For years Finnish polyechnics have arranged entrance exams in the developing world to attract students. But exams are suspended this spring in Nepal, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Nigeria and Kenya.
Like many others, Ranjit's school, Laurea polytechnic, says it is no longer organising entrance exams in Nepal following a recommendation by Finnish officials. Finland's Immigration Service says students arriving from developing countries cannot afford to live in Finland.
The government requires that non-EU students show assets of 6,000 euros when moving to Finland as they are not eligible for state-sponsored financial aid. Officials say foreigners abuse the clause by circulating money into each other's bank accounts.
"If students don't have the money there's a risk they'll be abused working for their own countrymen," says Pentti Sorsa, a senior advisor at the Finnish Immigration Service.
Working students
Ranjit hands out free newspapers every morning at Helsinki's Vuosaari metro station. The work earns him 525 euros a month.
"Accommodation is quite expensive and so is food. What I earn goes toward my living," he says.
Though living in Helsinki is expensive, Shishir Mani Pant, a Nepalese biotechnology student at Helsinki University, says Finland has one big advantage over other countries' university systems.
"It's quite expensive, but I would say if I don't have to pay tuition fees then it's manageable."

The Tuition Fee Experiment

The experimental programme in which foreign students from outside the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EES) are charged tuition fees began in 2010 at nine universities and ten universities of applied sciences (UAS). All in all, 130 programmes take part in the experiment, which is to end at the end of 2014. During the experiment, higher education institutions may levy fees on students who have bee accepted to higher education programmes taught in foreign languages (i.e. not in Finnish or Swedish).

The required changes to higher education legislation were carried out in 2009. The purpose of the experiment is to determine how degree programmes that are subject to fees influence the internationalisation of higher education institutions, the attractiveness of Finnish higher education, how students choose what and where to study, and the quality of programmes taught in foreign languages. SAMOK actively follows the tuition fee experiment and participates in critically and extensively evaluating it.

A Finn in five years

Becoming a Finn will be made easier in many other respects come September. According to Sonja Hämäläinen, an adviser to the Ministry of the Interior who was involved in drawing up the legislation, the biggest change is a reduction in the amount of time aliens are required to have lived in the country before becoming eligible to apply.

Previously foreigners had to have lived in Finland for at least six years, but in September that will be cut to five. And if an applicant can demonstrate a strong command of Finnish or Swedish, she can even apply after her fourth year.

According to an immigration policy white paper, the changes are partly driven by a desire to entice foreigners who study in Finland to put down roots here, as they are often highly skilled and proficient in Finnish.

“That way we can get skilled labour to stay in Finland,” Hämäläi-
nen says.

Under the new law, half of the years spent studying in Finland will officially count as time resident here for immigration purposes.​imes/domestic-news/general/159​55-amended-law-allows-former-f​​ml

Health Insurance

Most of you are now anxious about health insurance. In this post I am trying to give some idea about that. The most important issue is your insurance should cover 30,000 Euro in a year. Now see the recommended insurance company by Finnish Immigration Authority.

Cost 250-350 Euro

Last year most of the student who are already inside of Finland extended their visa by using this insurance which cost 100 Euro only. As all the visa decisions are made from Helsinki (not from India) authority are well concerned about this insurance
Download  the  insurance
When I was in Bangladesh I made insurance from Pioneer Insurance Co. LTD
Download  the  insurance 

2009 at New Delhi I saw two BD student were suffering with their insurance, they were holding two different companies insurance (due to my blogging rule I can not express the name of those directly)  Problem was insure coverage amount. Next day from Dhaka their family sent new one and they succeed to submit their application.

One student submitted his application with 6 months coverage health insurance. After 25 days from Finland he got email that they were going to give him 6 months visa as he submitted 6 months health insurance. Than that student made a new insurance of 1 year and emailed them and got full 1 year visa.

Insufficient income is the most common reason for refusing student residence permit applications

From January to October 2010, a total of 4,185 persons applied for a student residence permit, an increase of 7 per cent over the same time period last year (3,898 by October 2009). Of the applicants, 89 per cent were approved (92 per cent in 2009). A total of 3,864 non-EU students were granted residence permits.

As in previous years, the greatest number of residence permit applications were from Russian (816) and Chinese (601) students. Almost all of them were granted a residence permit. Besides the above-mentioned, the largest applicant groups were those from Nigeria (256), Nepal (232), Vietnam (214), the United States (173), India (165), and Bangladesh (157).

Watching for forged bank statements

A total of 11 per cent of the applicants were rejected. However, the rejection rates varied considerably by country. For example, approximately one half of the Nigerian applicants and one fourth of the Bangladeshi applicants were rejected.

The most common reason for rejection was insufficient income. A condition for a student residence permit is that the applicant should have a minimum of 500 euros a month or 6,000 euros a year at his/her disposal during his/her stay in Finland.

Last year, the Finnish Immigration Service (Migri) considerably intensified the investigation of residence permit applications from African students because of forged documents. It is now forged proofs of income that have gained prominence. A student residence permit is granted for one year at a time, and the applicant must produce a bank statement to show his/her income.

Most residence permit applicants come from developing countries such as Nigeria, Nepal and Bangladesh. Migri has reason to suspect that forged bank statements are used to prove sufficient income and that money is being circulated from one bank account to another. Migri is planning to intervene by further intensifying their examination of documents. The examination of bank statements is difficult, but it has already become possible; for example, the Nigerian embassy in Finland is assisting in local bank investigations, which is clearly reflecting on the refusal rate for Nigerian students.,2474

Masters level and Tuition fee

Bachelor and Doctoral Programs are totally tuition fee free. Only Tuition fee in Masters level study. Here you find the list where subjects and University name is listed concerning tuition fee. This year will be the first year of tuition fee in Finland so they have one hidden tricks. Even-though you will be admitted under the role of tuition fee but they will cover it by easy scholarship given to you (it is only my idea and experience, no official announcement, you may not be given Scholarship if you are out of luck).

Tuition fee list

My recommendation for Bangladeshi student who wants to study in Masters level in Finland, if you can manage scholarship than come here otherwise try to take admission in Bachelor degree, come here, manage your job and migrate to masters program. And it would be easier then to get scholarship even by the recommendation of your teacher. Think my word twice while tuition fee might be 9000 euro per academic year and living cost 400 euro per month. If you can bear your educational expenses from your family so you are warmly welcome in any time any condition.

In the upper part of this post I have written only for good student. But who are average grade and exhausted like me, please don't care any thing, come anyhow, it is possible to survive and stay here in any condition, as long as you want.

New bank statement and Income source issue

I heard from some of this blog readers that some of you have been asked for new bank statement. Don't be worry, if a normal step of visa procedure. Just take a new statement of your account and send that to concerning email address by scanning.

Now the important matter, you may asked from where you have got your fund? The same thing I was asked, Tell them your source of fund (I think you may answer that from your guardian e.g. Father, uncle). Than they could ask you how your guardian got his fund. You should answer intelligently. Translate your guardian's TIN certificate, VAT and treasury bill into English and send them scan copy of those. Have a look at how that papers DOWNLOAD

I think all problem will be solved and you would get residence permit. If any think to ask just comment as soon as possible, I know that all of you are running out of time.
