Pernilla, admissions counselor

Pernilla Andersson works at University Admissions in Sweden as an admissions officer. She is here to answer some questions that our international applicants have regarding application and tuition fees in Sweden.


Sabine: I´m not sure what courses or programmes I´ll be applying for but am wondering how much the tuition is for bachelor's (first cycle) and master's (second cycle). 

Pernilla:  All citizens of European Union (EU) and European Economic Area (EEA) countries, plus citizens of Switzerland, are not required to pay an application fee or tuition fees. For a list of these countries, please see the following link:

List of EU/EEA countries  

Sabine: Is there anything I have to do in order to document my German citizenship?  

Pernilla: All EU/EEA and Swiss citizens are required to submit proof of their citizenship to University Admissions in Sweden. The easiest way to do this is to submit either a copy of your valid passport, valid national ID card, or valid identity card where your citizenship is indicated. 

You can either upload a scanned copy of your original document to University Admissions in the 'Documents' tab in your account here, or submit a copy of the original document by mail.

The address to submit your documentation to is as follows:

Sabine: When will you need my documents?  

Pernilla: It is very important that you submit your documents verifying your citizenship by the deadline given when you apply for studies. You can find this date on the Application fees page. You must be logged in to access your information there.

If you submit your documents after the deadline, the date we receive your documents will be the new official date of your application. If this new date is after the application deadline, your application will be considered late, even if you submitted your original application on time.

We will not begin processing a student´s application until it is complete. This means that we must have your qualifications and your proof of citizenship submitted to us on time.
