If you have citizenship in a European Union (EU) or European Economic Area (EEA) country*, or Switzerland, you are not required to pay application or tuition fees. 

You are, however, required to provide documentation showing you do not need to pay the fee.

EU/EEA and Swiss applicants must document their citizenship

You are required to provide documentation of your citizenship status in order for your application to be processed. You can provide copies of one of the following documents in order to verify your status: 

  • Valid passport. For the passport to be considered valid, your copy must reach us a maximum of 3 months after the expiration date has passed. (For example, if the last valid day is 5 May, your copy must reach us latest by 5 August.)

  • Valid identity card which clearly states citizenship and the card's expiration date. For the ID card to be considered valid, your copy must reach us a maximum of 3 months after the expiration date has passed. (For example, if the last valid day is 5 May, your copy must reach us latest by 5 August.)

  • Official document. Citizens of an EU/EEA country or Switzerland who do not have a valid passport or ID card which contains information about both citizenship and expiration date can instead submit an official document which certifies their citizenship. This document must be certified, stamped, and must reach us a maximum of 3 months after the expiration date has passed. (For example, if the last valid day is 5 May, your copy must reach us latest by 5 August.) Please note that this official document must be officially translated to English, French, German or one of the Nordic languages if it has been issued in a different language.

You can upload your scanned document in the 'Documents' tab when you log in to your account, or send it via regular mail to:

University Admissions in Sweden
R 312
SE-106 53 Stockholm
Sweden

It is important that we receive your documentation by the deadline indicated; otherwise, your application will be considered late and will only be processed if time permits and there are places available.

What about if I'm a resident of an EU/EEA country?

Having temporary or permanent residency in an EU/EEA country does NOT exempt you from paying fees.
