The United Kingdom has left the European Union. In the long term, it may affect the opportunity for British citizens to study in Sweden. 

The United Kingdom formally left the European Union on 1 February 2020. Transitional rules are in effect until 31 December 2020. During this time, most things will in practice will continue as they are now. 

Negotiations on the future relationship between the UK and the EU will begin in the spring. Only when negotiations are complete will we know what the new rules will be for studies in Sweden.

Applicants with citizenship from a country other than an EU/EEA country or Switzerland must pay application and tuition fees for higher education studies in Sweden. The fact that the UK has left the EU can eventually mean that UK citizens will have to pay application and tuition fees to study here.

We will provide updated information as details become clear.
