Graduation and money

Post by Y77 » Tue Sep 25, 2018 12:54 pm

Someone told me that when a university student graduates from a university in Finland, the university gets lots of money from the state, is it true? If true, does anybody know how much? Just out of curiosity....

Yes, basically. But it's not a lump sum per graduate.

The University of Helsinki website simplifies it like this: "The performance of Finnish universities is measured by, among other things, the number of degrees and publications produced. These numbers determine the amount of funding granted from the Government budget (i.e., core funding) to each university."

The Ministry of Education and Culture goes more into detail, check the core funding PDFs if you're interested in the percentages:
