Unlike the application fee, which is paid to University Admissions in Sweden, tuition fees are paid directly to the university the student plans on attending.

It is up to each individual university to decide the tuition costs for their courses and programmes 

Information regarding tuition fees can be found in the course search results here at Universityadmissions.se, or on the websites of each school. Each course and programme has information regarding the first instalment, or the amount that first must be paid, and the total fee for the entire course or programme.

Tuition fees are paid to the university

Students should pay the first instalment of their tuition cost as soon as they have been offered a place and have accepted their offer. This information will be provided when the Notification of Selection Results is published. Please see Key dates for further information.

It is important to have good contact with the school you are planning on attending and meet any deadlines for payment of tuition fees that are given to you by them. They will give you instructions on how to make your payment. This process may differ for individual universities.

The first instalment of the tuition fee must be paid before your application for a residency permit can be approved

In Sweden, all offers of admission are considered preliminary until the student has paid the first instalment of his or her tuition fee. Applications for a residence permit will not be approved until the Swedish Migration Board receives notification from your university that your first tuition fee instalment has been paid.

Students may submit their application for a residence permit before they pay their first instalment, but please note that the application will not be approved until the first instalment of the tuition payment is made. We suggest that students submit their residence permit application to the Swedish Migration Board as soon as they receive and reply to their Notification of Selection Results. At the same time, students should pay their first tuition fee instalment to their school.

The easiest and fastest way to apply for a residence permit is to use the online application at the Swedish Migration Board's website. Here's a link to information about applying for a residence permit:

How to apply for a residence permit

It is important that you respond to your offer on your Notification of Selection Results and pay your tuition fee instalment in good time so that your residence permit process can begin as soon as possible.

For more information regarding applying for a residence permit, please see the Swedish Migration Board's website at the link provide in the column to the right.

Conditionally admitted and your tuition fee

Students who are required to pay tuition fees will be listed as 'Conditionally admitted' on their Notification of Selection Results. At this time, our computer system cannot record when a student has paid the first instalment of their tuition fee to their university. Your status will still be listed as 'Conditionally admitted,' even after you've paid the tuition fee.

Please note: There are other reasons why a student may have been conditionally admitted. If this is the case, you will have received information regarding what you need to do in order to finalize your acceptance.

Other questions regarding tuition fees

Any questions regarding tuition fees should be directed to the school you are planning on attending.
