Study opportunities to students in Ukrainian universities
Who can apply?

You are eligible to apply if you have arrived in Finland and have an existing, valid right to study at a Ukrainian university, and your studies have been discontinued due to the war. Studies are free of charge.

There is a capacity for 30 students from Ukrainian universities.  Applications will be processed in arrival order non-stop.  

Admission criteria 

The right to study will be granted based on the applicant’s academic performance, amount and compatibility of their earlier studies with those offered by the University of Lapland. Applicants should have a sufficient proficiency in English or Finnish.

The selection is based on the application with required attachments and a possible interview.

The right to study is valid for a maximum two years. The right to study covers mainly studies provided in English.

Erasmus+ grants for students from Ukrainian universities 

University of Lapland offers up to 30 Erasmus+ grants for 5 month period for students from Ukrainian universities. The grant consists of a monthly support of 1150€ for maximum of 5 months and the potential travel grant from your current location. 

Erasmus+ grants are determined according to the duration of the exchange and the cost of living in the target country. One calendar month makes you eligible for one full monthly payment. For example the period 15 Sep – 14 Oct makes a full calendar month. The days exceeding a full month make you eligible for a daily allowance according to the category (below).

How to apply?

Please apply by using the online application form by March 4, 2025.

The study right

The study right is valid until 31.7.2025.

The study right isn't valid for completing a university degree and it doesn't produce eligibility to student benefits provided by e.g. the Finnish Social Insurance Institution. However students can apply for the Student Union of the University of Lapland's wellness pass without the regular fee.

These studies are free of charge for the students.
