You do not have to pay tuition fees if:

  • You have a Swedish citizenship,
  • You have been granted a permanent Swedish residency permit,
  • You have been granted a temporary Swedish residency permit for reasons other than studies. (Having a temporary residency permit for studies in Sweden does NOT grant you exemption from fee payments),

  • You are a family member of a citizen of an EU or EEA country, or Switzerland, and have the right to temporary or permanent residency in Sweden,

  • You are registered at a university or university college outside of Sweden and will be studying in Sweden on a temporary basis as part of an official study abroad programme as an exchange student.

If you started a course or programme before 1 July 2011, you may finish that course or programme without paying tuition fees. If you apply for and are given a place in a new course or programme that starts after 1 July 2011, you must pay a tuition fee for the new course or programme.
