Application and tuition fees

Prior to the autumn semester 2011, application and tuition fees were introduced at basic and advanced level for applicants who are not citizens of the EU, EEA countries or Switzerland. As a Swedish citizen, you do not need to pay either application or tuition fees. Fee-paying students are required to pay the tuition fee before they can begin their studies. Find out more at

If you are a citizen from outside EU/EEA/Switzerland, there are some exemptions.
