Other questions

As soon as you have been offered a place and paid the first instalment of your tuition fee, you should immediately apply for a residence permit. The fastest and easiest way to do this is using the online application at the Swedish Migration Agency's website. Students who cannot apply online should contact their nearest Swedish embassy or consulate for more information.

Please note that you are not eligible for a residence permit for studies until you have been offered a place and paid the first tuition fee instalment. Other restrictions may apply regarding your eligibility; this will be determined by the Swedish Migration Agency.

Applying for a residence permit at the Swedish Migration Agency's website

The best time to submit a residence permit application is as soon as you've paid the first instalment of your tuition fee. The Swedish Migration Agency will not make a decision on your application until the tuition fee has been paid.
