Immigration requirements concerning funding
Applicants must ensure that they have adequate funds to support themselves financially through their entire period of study in Finland. In order to be granted a residence permit, non-EU/EEA citizens are required to show that they have at least 6720 EUR/year or 560 EUR/month at their disposal.
See further information on the Finnish Immigration Service page. International students who cannot show proof of sufficient funds for living expenses during their studies in Finland will not obtain a residence permit.
Working during your studies
The Master's Degree Programme at Hanken is composed of full-time studies and therefore students should not plan to work while studying. During the semester, non-EU citizens studying in Finland are, however, allowed to work up to 25 hours/week with their student residence permit. During holidays, (specifically the summer and Christmas holidays) there is no such limitation and students are able to work full-time.
