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 proof of your citizenship in order for your admissions application to be processed.

Please note that having temporary or permanent residency in an EU/EEA country does NOT exempt you from paying fees. 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.) Please note that a driver's license cannot be accepted as proof of citizenship.

  • 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 no later than 3 months after the expiration date has passed. (For example, if the last valid day is 5 May, your copy must reach us by 5 August.) .) If the document does not contain an expiration date it must reach us no later than three months after the issue date. 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.

The safest, fastest and preferred method for you to get your document to University Admissions is by uploading a scan of your the original in the 'Documents' tab on your account here. 

If for some reason you are unable to scan and upload your document, you can get it to us via regular post. The address to submit your documentation to is:

Please include the cover sheet provided under 'Application' in 'My pages' if you submit your documentation via regular post. Do not include a cover sheet if you upload your identification document.

It is important that you submit your documentation so that it arrives at University Admissions by the deadline indicated; otherwise, your application will be considered late and will only be processed if time permits and there are places available.
