Document your citizenship (EU/EEA)

If you have citizenship in a European Union (EU) or European Economic Area (EEA) country*, or Switzerland, you must document your citizenship in order to be exempt from application and tuition fees.

Documenting your EU/EEA or Swiss citizenship

You're required to provide documentation of your citizenship status in order for your application to be processed. Please 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 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 by 5 August.)
  • 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 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 by 5 August.) Please note that this official document must be officially translated to English, French, German or one of the Nordic languages if it's been issued in a different language.

It's important that we receive your documentation by the deadline indicated; otherwise, your application will be considered late and will only be processed if time permits and there are places available.
