Brexit information for British citizens and their families

The United Kingdom formally left the European Union on 1 February 2020. This has resulted in some changes regarding the application and tuition fee requirements for British citizens and their families.

There are rules that apply for the transitional period, and for after that period is concluded.

During the transitional period

A transitional period has been put in place until 31 December of this year. During this time, British citizens and their family members will continue for the most part to have the same rights as they had before. Among other things, this means that they will be exempt from paying application and tuition fees for higher education studies in Sweden.

After the transitional period

The transitional period expires on 31 December 2020. After this, British citizens and their family members designated in article 10 of the Withdrawal Agreement - those who exercised their right to reside in a Member State before the end of the transitional period, and continue to do so - will not be required to pay application and tuition fees.

British citizens not covered by the Withdrawal Agreement - or any other fee exemptions - will be required to pay both application and tuition fees starting 1 January 2021.
