How many hours are the international students allowed to study in Finland? And, how much hours in a week are they allowed to work?
International students must be registered as a full time student to study in Finland. The student must attend classes equivalent to 30 hours a week. That means, in most universities, students need to study for about 1600 hours a year which is worth 60 credits. Students joined for Bachelor's degree can get their degree after completing 180 credits in 3 years while students joined for Master's degree can get their degree after completing 120 credits in 2 years at the rate of 60 credits per year.
Regarding the work permit, same as the regulations in most of other European countries, Finland also allows international students to work up to 20 hours a week while the course is in session and full time during holidays.
