Payment of Tuition Fees
An application fee of SEK 900 (approximately EUR 100) applies to all SLU programmes and courses. To apply, visit University Admissions.
Once students have received notification of acceptance to a master´s programme at SLU and have confirmed their acceptance, they will receive an invoice by email for the tuition fees for the first semester. Along with the invoice, students will receive information on how and when payment should be made. Once the tuition fees for the first semester are paid, students can apply for your residence permit through the Swedish Migration Board, Migrationsverket.
Students accepted to courses need to contact the Admissions Office at SLU, in order to receive an invoice. It is only possible to receive an invoice after the selection results is published.
Refund of Tuition Fees
SLU does not refund tuition fees; but exceptions can be made in individual cases if it has been established that there are exceptional and mitigating circumstances. We can only make refunds to the same bank account that the tuition fee was paid from. To avoid problems regarding refunding, we strongly recommend you make a bank wire transfer from an account where you are the registered account holder. For further information, please contact the Admissions Office at SLU.
Scholarships are available for fee-paying students admitted to Master's programmes. The scholarships are awarded by both SLU and the Swedish Institute (SI).
