Application Fee

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.

EU/EEA and Switzerland citizens are exempt from fees, but must document their status.

Citizens of a Nordic country (Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden) and their autonomous regions (Åland Islands, Faroe Islands, Greenland) are not required to pay application fees.

Students who are registered for a course or programme at a Swedish university at the time they submit their application for future semesters are not required to pay an application fee.

  2. Motivation letter (not the same as cover sheet) [optional]
  3. Certificates and diplomas from your previous education (stamped and signed copies)

Copies and scanned documents supporting your application must be stamped and signed by the issuing institution, or a notary public. If this is not done, your application will not be processed. Documents should be in the original language, and in officially certified translations into Swedish, English, French or German, if the original documents are in a language other than these or the Scandinavian languages.

There are two ways to submit your documents to University Admissions: you can upload them at, or send them by regular post.

Some documents can always be uploaded, while others - especially academic qualifications from some countries - must be sent via regular mail. For some countries, applicants must arrange for their university to send their academic qualifications directly to University Admissions (see here for details).
