The obligation to charge tuition fees from students coming from outside EU and EEA countries did not have a significant effect on the number of international applicants to Uniarts Helsinki.

The number of admitted students from non-EU countries was as high as 29, which sets a new Uniarts Helsinki record.

The number of applicants and selected students varies every year, as all programmes do not admit new students each year.
