Students who are registered for a course or programme at a Swedish university at the time they submit their application for future semesters are not required to pay an application fee. 

They may, however, still be required to pay tuition fees.

Checking registration status

After you submit your application, your account information is matched with Ladok, the study administration system, in order to search for a record of current registration. If you are currently registered for a course or programme, your status will be automatically changed to no application fee required. The result of this check will be available on the 'Application fees' page when you log in to your account here on Universityadmissions.se. 

This process can take a few days, so please be patient while your status is checked and updated.

Use your original account

Please note that is it critical that you use your original account here at Universityadmissions.se, or the account that you created on studera.nu (the old admissions website) when submitting your application. All of your academic information from your studies in Sweden is registered to that account. If you create another account, or use an account you created after your original, we will not be able to match your information in Ladok to the information you submit with your application and will be unable to document your status as no application fee required.

You can also log in to at the website of the university you are currently attending and enter Universityadmissions.se from there. This will ensure that the information you use to log in matches your registration information in the Ladok system.

If you cannot remember your password or username, you can click on 'Log in' at the startpage here and follow the link for instructions.

Tuition fees

If you started a course or programme before 1 July 2011, you may finish that course or programme without paying tuition fees. If you apply for and are given a place in a new course or programme that starts after 1 July 2011, you must pay a tuition fee for the new course or programme.
