Higher Study in Finland for Bangladeshi Students

Helsinki university Finland

Planning to go Finland for higher study? Now, can’t decide what process is better for you? Well, Here I’m sharing some of my own experience about Finland.


First suggestion for you, don’t go any consultancy center. Use your own brain and work hard, it’s better for you. Many of the consultancy centers are fake. They are always trying to attracting you by different types of advertising. They also confirm you about your visa. But, believe me it’s totally hyprocasy.

 Study in Finland


You will get visa by your own eligibility. Nothing depends on the consultancy centers. Contact the regional embassy of the country where you want to go. They will suggest you about the procedure.


Keep in mind:

  • CGPA/GPA isn’t main factor for Finland. They observe your communication ability.
  • Choice University of Helsinki. It will be better for you. University of Helsinki is a top leveled university of Finland.
  • It will cost you about 3Lacks. Most of the Finish universities offer full free scholarship. If you want to take your first 6 months cost with you, that will be better for you.
  • You must carry a score of minimum 5.5 in IELTS to get Finland visa. But, if you really want to get admitted in University of Helsinki, you must carry score 6 in IELTS. Usually they don’t accept any student having the score of IELTS below 6.00.



Lots of student is studying Finland right now. Hope, you will one of them.


Best of luck

    I am 40 years old.
    Kindly refer to the subject. I am in doubt/ problem of selecting/finding out the suitable/appropriate subject and easily admissible college/university for masters program {sports/sales/marketing or any theoretical arts/social science related subject}.

    Kindly consider the following information

    01. easy subject
    02. easy application procedure
    03. less competitiveness in selection program
    04. any low/medium rank college/university
    05. maximum student admitting college/university
    06. Low/without IELTS required college/university

    Your kind cooperation is solicited providing list of subject and university/college at earliest

    1. Actually it’s too tough to suggest someone a subject. It’s better to find yourself online according to your choice and your background.

    1. You don’t have to do anything more. You have completed SSC and HSC and you have completed IELTS also.

      Now, choice a versity apply there. When you got admitted any versity then contact the embassy of Finland.

      For your concern, there have no Embassy of Finland in Bangladesh. You have to contact through Finland Embassy in India.

  17. Hello Editor,

    I am a recent graduate in IT and wish to pursue a Masters degree in Finland and later settle there permanently. I have looked into some universities and will start application process by December, when their portal opens.

    An acquaintance of mine said that i need to sit for an entrance exam in Nepal (especially for BDeshi students) and then get the visa through New Delhi’s Finland Embassy. I am not too sure about its authenticy. Can you please clarify my doubt.

    Kind regards.

    1. I know they don’t have their embassy in Bangladesh and they are handling visa matters for Bangladeshi through New Delhi’s Finland Embassy. Not sure about Nepal :s

      Also I heard, The Embassy of Sweden in Bangladesh is handling the “Schengen visa” matters of the Embassy of Finland.

      You can contact with New Delhi’s Embassy about that through mail or phone.


      1. Thanks for the prompt response.

        The visa is not an issue for me. I dont mind getting it from New Delhi. But i need to be assured regarding the entrance exam in Nepal. Though i did not hear anything about it, my acquaintance is currently studying Bachelors degree in Finland and went through the same process as i earlier mentioned.

        I am expecting that you have studied/are studying in Finland and would have an answer regarding it. Or it would be kind enough to let me know from where i can confirm it.

        Kind regards.

  18. well, you said to contact with the Embassy for further info , but the thing is in Bangladesh they don’t have their Embassy. so, for the visa processing steps I have to go Delhi,right? or there is alternative solution to get the visa from Bangladesh?

    1. Yes, they don’t have their embassy in Bangladesh. But, The Embassy of Sweden is handling the “Schengen visa” matters of the Embassy of Finland. Not sure about student visa but you can try at Swedish embassy if you like to.

      Embassy of Sweden
      House 1, Road 51,
      Gulshan 2,
      Dhaka 1212,

      General opening hours:
      Sunday to Thursday:
      08.00 – 16.00

  19. Actually I want to know that ,’Is there any step for poor brilliant and highly ambitious student?” Actually Abroad is for rich student not poor. Poor students are mainly contact consultancy center for less money and then they are lost their valuable properties or everything. Their talent stop here. On the other hand, embassy ,oh no,’ do it ,do that money different task for visa,and need more money for that . Embassy process is very complex for me because of money.

  20. Dear Brother,

    I am studding in EEE final year,recently i know that higher study in Finland has full free tution fee,i want to complete my post graduation and want to stay there permanently,if i go there for higher study can i get per time job and what will be the cost for my graduation

  21. Dear Editor Brother,

    but in studentship how about living cost ? How about Part time Job ?

    please give information brother here.

  22. btw I just read an article about Living cost in Finland.Its says its tough 4 Asian students like us to staying at Finland because of high living cost.What about part-time job opportunity for bangladeshi students there? The article says too that “the unemployment rate is high and most of the employer seek the people who know Finnish language.” So what will we do if we don’t know Finnish language? plz let me clear this fact!

    1. You must complete IELTS before applying for visa. And yes, You have to learn Finnish language but that not today. If you planning to stay there permanently, then you have to.

        1. Dear Roy, google mail says that your mail id isn’t correct and they returned my mail. I’ve tried 3times.


  23. Hey Editor…I wanna personally contact with u.Will u kindly give me ur active e-mail address or facebook profile link?

        1. Student visa is more easier than working visa in Finland. You have to carry 6+ score in IELTS. After finishing IELTS, go to the Finland embassy, they will tell you other process step by step.
