Holacunlay: @OP, thanks for the update, you are the best(thumbs up)
but, i check Lappeenranta University of Technology and they requested for tuition fee?
i guess all are free
What can you say about this?
Thanks bro.

This is a quote from my previous comment on these thread concerning tuiton fees

the upcoming application period is 2012/2013. Some schools are already charging tuition fee to some courses from 2010-2012 as suggested by the Finnish Ministry of education on a trial basis in making decision of implementing tuition fees for non EU/EEA citizens.

http://www.uwasa.fi/midcom-serveattachmentguid-513343f6b29b00a406ba601704431f96/CIMO_Tuition%20fees_structural%20change.pdf

Tuition fee might be implemented soon from 2014 at earliest, so its advisable to apply early

Apply to courses that are not charging tuition fees, because tuition fees might be implemented sooner than you think

@dahonestboss and other nairalanders, Please I need Toefl softcopy materials, if it's not too much to ask

Sorry I did IELTS not TOEFL. hopefully someone on this thread might help you out

and also how do I go about this bank statement stuff,

having 6000k is enough, thats how to go about it.

how exactly do they confirm the account?

They will confirm it from the bank

do they do it the way US embassy do theirs?

How do they do it? (the US embassy)

how long must the 6000euros be the account?

doesnt matter how long, the most important thing is a genuine source of fund, depositing a lump sum of money just to get the visa without a good evidence of source will result to being denied.

dahonestboss: Hello Mates

Just thought I might be of help to prospective Applicant who would like to apply for a MASTER degree programme in Finland. The application period will start in 1st of December 2012 to January 2013, And if you would like to apply and need genuine information, kindly post it here and I will get back to you.

Note that studying in Finland is entirely free, from the online application till when you are accepted and there are no tuition fee thereafter. Degrees from Finland are highly respected worldwide and they have some of the world best university that features in the top hundred universities every year e.g. university of helsinki, Aalto university, helsinki university of technology etc.

Many international organisation has rated Finnish educational system as the best in the world including WEF (world economic forum). Finland is also a Schengen country, which gives you an advantages to travel around Europe visa free.

I did everything myself when I was applying to come here recently, and it was successful, and I would like to share some info to genuine applicant who wish to apply in the upcoming application period.

you can visit www.universityadmissions.fi to get acquainted on how to apply and the school requirement on each courses, its very easy and straight forward.

For undergraduate student, I might not be able to help because Nigerian applicant would be invited to Finland instead of Ghana (of which you cant get a visa to come for exam, its written boldly on the Finnish embassy website in Abuja), but if you live in another schengen country, or has a passport with visa free to to the schengen states, then I might help, but familiarize yourself with the info on these page first

http://www.nairaland.com/577919/study-finland-september-tuition-free

Master degree are the easiest, without the need for any entrance exam, gmat, SAT etc.

Scandinavia is nice and peaceful, smiley smiley smiley

Lets do this together, we shall get there

Br, Honest.
Good day, I have to commend you on this thread, just reading tru it shows me how much u want to help others. God Bless u for that.

of course, thats even the best and appear more realistic. but the 6000k euros MUST be in your account, and it would make more sense if the money was deposited or transferred from your dads account to your own account.

they might ask you for sponsors financial documents too, so let that be ready as well.

Uni of Hel is very competitive due to its prestige and location in the capital city. depending on your packaging, you should be able to secure an admission there, but it all boils down to your bachelor degree. I hope say na 1st class you get sha, but there is nothing wrong in trying, Nigerians are studying there too. I know few of them.

It depends on you. since you have already graduated, then its advisable you should apply now. if you secure the admission, you can differ till when you will complete your NYSC or otherwise, the choice is yours. but whichever way you choose are all good. the most important thing is to secure a study place for yourself first, then other things follows.

I did IELTS, which in my own opinion is easier because its british english, its cheaper and you just have to send a photocopy of your language certificate, which makes it more easier and less expensive or time wasting if you have to contact ETS to send your result on your behalf to the school.

Pls endeavour to read the thread, I already addressed your question earlier

dahonestboss.......
U are Godsent and a blessing to creative and hardworking Nigerian Youths and i am sure you are repping us well over there.
I have been opportuned to travel to germany on official course and now i feel the time is right for me to pursue my Masters program in Finland owing to the free tuiton readily available, i actually thought the finnish Government ended the free tuiton this year so its wonderful knowing its still accessible. I would love to go for Masters in Information Technology in University of Tampere (UTA). So November ending i am rushing to my alma matter to get my transcript and my IELTS result should be out by then as i intend writing it next weekend.
Few Questions i need you to thrash out for me.
1. At what point must the 6000 euros reflect in my account (Before,during or after visa?)
2. The transcript must be sent by the school? or i can send copies and keep original?
3. Will i have to send my Original B.Sc certificate and other original documents?
4. Do my Documents need to be translated?
5. What are the Documents i have to get ready for the application process?
Please any more information you feel i will need to successfully make this happen,please do help by telling.
Best Regards,
Philemon
I have made progress by opening an account with universityadmissions.fi and i will try to do everything before the time frame is up thats why am starting now

Before you apply for your permit, if you just deposited a lump sum, attached evidence of source of funds,or else, you know what next.

The transcript must be sent by the school? or i can send copies and keep original?
must be send by the school. I doubt if your school will even give it to you, they usually send it directly to instituitions

Will i have to send my Original B.Sc certificate and other original documents?
NO

Do my Documents need to be translated?
If its not in English, Swedish or Finnish, then it should be translated.

What are the Documents i have to get ready for the application process?
Your transcripts and Language skill certificate are the minimum requirement
