Application and tuition fees
Application and tuition fees apply for students who are not citizens of an EU/EEA/Nordic country or Switzerland and who apply for or enrol on studies at the bachelor’s or master’s level.
Tuition fees vary between SEK 80,000–140,000 per academic year for most subjects. Programmes in certain fields may have notably higher fees. The tuition fees for each course and programme are listed at Universityadmissions.se and on each programme’s website.

Student union fees
Literature and textbooks
On average, expect to spend about SEK 750 per month on textbooks per semester. In some subjects, like law and natural sciences, this figure is likely to be higher. Many student unions organise book sales where students can buy used textbooks cheaply; it’s also common for students to post notices on campus selling their used copies of previous years’ textbooks.
