Primary Data

Dear Sir,

You will be required to appear for an interview at the Embassy in New Delhi along with your bio-data, passport, letter of admission, educational/work experience certificates and financial support documents ( Euro 6000 in your name in any bank). Kindly bring two copies of each document.

Any student who submits a residence permit application must attach details of their comprehensive health insurance cover to their application. Comprehensive insurance cover means insurance which includes the types of treatment and costs that are covered by municipal health care services and the health insurance system.
It is a precondition for obtaining a residence permit that the student has valid health insurance cover with a reliable and solvent company or institution.
For studies of less than two years in duration, a student must have private insurance which primarily covers the costs of medical treatment up to 100,000 euros (cost level in 2007).
Where the duration of the studies is two years or more, a student will usually have a home municipality in Finland and is therefore entitled to municipal health care services. In such cases, it is sufficient for the insurance to primarily cover the cost of medicines (in practice the cover extends to doctor’s fees and costs of treatment and examination), up to 30,000 euros (cost level in 2007).
A student must have insurance cover when applying for a residence permit as without it a residence permit cannot be granted. In principle a residence permit cannot be issued for a period exceeding the period of the insurance cover.
The application fee is Rs.6400/- and the processing time is approx. 45 days.

Please feel free to call for any clarifications.

What is entrance exam? How much score I need?

"Entrance" this word is a popular word in Finland. To entry in somewhere is entrance. So from the point of view of Bangladesh student Entrance exam is one kind of admission test only. In Finland there is no tuition fee, so they obviously want that they should give the chance to meritorious students, for that they start entrance exam. But Don't be anxious about that easy admission test. It is possible to get chance for study here in Finland if you get only 50 out of 100 marks in that entrance/admission test. So start to prepare yourself for that exam.

Total cost to come in Finland

All of us are anxious about the cost to come in Finland. But you will be glade to know that total cost to come in Finland not more than 2 lac Bangladeshi Taka. Here I am describing the cost:

1. Application no cost
2. Sending documents 2000/=
3. Entrance Exam registration 4000/=
4. Health Insurance 30,000/=
5. Visa application fee 10,000/=
5. India trip for submitting visa application 10,000/=
7. India trip for collecting visa stamp 10,000/=
8. plane fare to come Finland 65,000/=

In which semester you should apply?

As far as I know it is possible to take admission in Finland in two individual semester, Spring and Autumn. Application procedure for spring starts from 1st September and For autumn it is January. But every year in spring semester they allow lowest number of student and only two or three university admit student from the outside of Finland. So I recommend Autumn semester for Bangladeshi students. Even some time they do not arrange entrance exam /admission test in Dhaka for spring semester, but always they arrange entrance exam /admission test in Dhaka for Autumn semester. So take decision yourself that which semester would be good for you.

Degree programmes starting in spring 2010

1. Application period 1 - 11 September 2009. Online application closes on 11 September at 4.15 pm Finnish time (+2 hrs GMT).

2. Entrance examinations are held between 21 and 30 October 2009
3. Polytechnics/UAS announce the results by 27 November 2009
4. Admitted students must confirm their study places by 11 December 2009 at 4.15 pm Finnish time at the latest.

Application results for degree programmes starting in spring 2010 will be sent by mail to the students by 27 November 2009 at the latest. In addition to the letter of admittance, the student will receive a confirmation form. It is imperative that the student submits the confirmation form to the higher education institution in which he/she wishes to study by 11 December 2009 at 4.15 pm Finnish time at the latest, otherwise the student will forfeit the study place.

Syllabus of exam

Generally the entrance exam syllabus is Mathematics, Physics, Logical problems and English for engineering student. For business student it is Mathematics, Management, English, Business related small problems and by email they will provide you some reference book or attachment files. In download section of this site I am trying to gather Question bank of Engineering and Business entrance exam

Entrance Exam Letter

If you selected for Entrance exam you will get this letter pack at you mailing address. All instructions are written there. With that letter and along with your passport you have to go British council for registration of entrance exam it needs 4000 taka. Then British council will confirm you the venue and time table of the exam. Now you have to be prepared for exam. As far as I know two types of exam taken by Finnish education board one is Engineering one is business. So if your selected subject is Science related you have to sit for engineering section and if your background is commerce than business. But it possible for science students for appearing in business related exam for this you have to apply for business related subject when you make your online application.

After making a successful application you will get a confirmation email and in that letter the address is written where you have to send your papers. Follow the instruction and send your papers to correct address. By EMS it need 1400 Taka By DHL or FEDEX it need 2400 taka to send half Kg weight to Finland within 7 days.

Most of the student wants to study in Helsinki the capital city of Finland. If you choose university near Helsinki you have to do very well in entrance exam so decision upon you cause you are not only competing with Bangladesh student but also student of whole word.

and send that to your first priority university address. You'll find address in your email also in their website. EMS in Dhaka GPO will cut near 1200/1300 Taka (15 days need to reach). FedEx or DHL charger 2400 Taka (7 day need to reach). I am again reminding you all papers should be notarized by any notary public. Be careful about your postal address cause they'll send you invitation card of entrance exam by post, and you know the bad condition of our postal system
