Pay your application fee

For students who must pay an application fee, it's important to read all instructions and meet the deadlines indicated. The following is information regarding how to pay your fee.

The application fee process

An application fee of 900 SEK (Swedish kronor) must be received by the deadline indicated in order for your application to be processed. Any payments received after the deadline will result in your application status being changed to late. Late applications are only processed at the discretion of each university, if there are places available.

One application fee per semester

Students pay one application fee for each semester they submit an application for. It doesn't matter how many courses or programmes you've applied to in that semester, or if you've applied to different admissions rounds in that semester – you pay 900 SEK.

The fee cannot be refunded

As the application fee is an administrative fee, it cannot be refunded.

Payment methods

You can pay the application fee three different ways:

The best method to use to pay your application fee is electronically on this website using a credit or bank card. It's the quickest and most secure way of getting your payment to us. 

When and where can I make my payment?

During the application process, you'll be prompted with a 'To payment' button. Click on that button to access the payment page. You can also access this page from the 'Application fee' section when you're logged in to your account.

Making your credit card payment

Follow the instructions on the card payment page in order to pay your application fee.

After you submit your payment, you'll receive a notification regarding the success of your transaction. If you see an error message, please follow the instructions given. In most cases, any problems with your transaction will require you to contact your bank.

How will I know that my credit card payment was accepted?

Your information on the 'Application fee' page will be updated when your payment has been received. Please note that this can take a day or two to be completed.

If your application fee status doesn't change after 2 working days, please contact University Admissions.

What cards are accepted?

University Admissions accepts payments made with a Visa (regular Visa and Visa Electron), MasterCard (regular MasterCard and Maestro), or JCB. Other types of cards can unfortunately not be accepted.

Students who don't have access to a credit or bank card can pay their application fee by transferring funds from the bank of their choice to University Admissions in Sweden. 

We do not recommend that students who have access to a card use this method as it takes longer, is more complicated, and is less secure.

Bank payment instructions

  • Log in to your account on and go to the 'Application fee' page under 'My pages'.
  • Find your reference number and write it down. You MUST use this reference number when arranging the transfer of funds. Please be sure you use the reference number that matches the semester you're applying to and paying a fee for.
  • Next, you need information regarding name of recipient, the bank to send the funds to, and the account information. You can find this information on the 'Application fee' page. At the bottom of this page, there is a button 'To bank payment'. You must read and understand the terms and conditions and check the box indicated, then click on this button. There, you'll find all the information you need – print out that page.
  • Select the bank you wish to use and take your printed and filled-out information sheet with you.
  • Inform your bank that you wish to transfer 900 SEK (Swedish kronor). It is best that we receive the funds in Swedish kronor.
  • If your bank can't transfer Swedish kronor, they must transfer the funds in a currency amount which is the equivalent of 900 Swedish kronor. You are responsible for paying all fees associated with this transfer so that the final amount received at University Admissions in Sweden is 900 SEK.
  • Inform your bank of the payment deadline date and let them know that University Admissions in Sweden must receive your payment by that date.
  • Inform your bank that they must include your reference number with the transfer. This is very important! Without a reference number, we will be unable to match your payment with your application. We won't be able to credit you for your payment and won't return the funds.

Paying with your Swedish bank account by BankGiro

Students with a bank account in Sweden can pay their application fee using the same method as they use when paying other bills. Please be sure to indicate your reference number when you send your payment via BankGiro. You can find your reference number in the 'Application fee' section of your account.

Accessing BankGiro information

You can find University Admissions' BankGiro account number on the 'Application fee' page. At the bottom of this page, there is a link to payment via a bank. All applicants who pay the application fee must read and understand the terms and conditions - after you've read them, check the box indicated in order to activate the payment via a bank link.

After clicking, you'll find the BankGiro account information you need.
