Application Fees and Tuition Fees

If you are a citizen of an EU or EEA country or Switzerland you don’t have to pay an application fee or a tuition fee to Uniarts.

Are you a citizen of an EU or EEA country or Switzerland?

Citizens of Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Iceland and the other EU and EEA countries (including Switzerland) do not have to pay an application fee when applying to Uniarts or a tuition fee if admitted.

If you are admitted to the university you need to read up on what applies to you regarding a residence permit.

As an EU or EEA citizen you must verify that you don’t have to pay a fee

If you are not a Swedish citizen you have to show that you are not required to pay an application fee or a tuition fee. You do this by uploading a photo or scan of your valid passport or your valid national identity card, on which your citizenship is stated, to accompany your application.

The categories of students who have to pay a fee

If you are not a citizen of an EU or EEA country or Switzerland you are required to pay an application fee (SEK 900) to Uniarts. There are some exemptions for citizens of non-EU and non-EEA countries.

Please note that we need to have received your payment by the final date of application to be able to process your application.

If you are admitted to the university, you need to read up on what applies to you regarding a residence permit for studies. The procedure of receiving a residence permit for studies can take several months, so make sure to read up on the procedure and what applies to you ahead of time. How long the procedure takes varies with the complexity of the case as well as on whether the Migration authorities need further information from you.

Exemptions for citizens from outside EU and EEA

If you are not a citizen from an EU or EEA country of Switzerland you have to pay an application fee and - if you are accepted - a tuition fee.

Exemptions to the obligation to pay an application fee and a tuition fee

There are some exemptions from the requirement to pay an application fee and a tuition fee. You do not have to pay if you:

If you have a right of residence

If you have a right of residence but don’t have a Swedish personal identity number (called a personnummer in Swedish), you must submit a document to show:

  • that you have a right of residence on grounds other than studies. You must submit a certified copy of the first page of the decision about your right of residence from the Swedish Migration Agency
  • that you have a right of residence. You must submit a certified copy of your residence card (called an uppehållskort in Swedish) or a copy of the decision about your right of residence from the Swedish Migration Agency

Payment of application and tuition fees

This is how you make your payment of the application fee and tuition fee to Uniarts.

It is your responsibility to make sure that you allow the bank sufficient time for the money transfer, which may take several days.
 

Tuition fee

Uniarts has some possibilities of offering scholarships to international students.

Tuition fee scholarships

Uniarts has some possibilities of offering scholarships that cover the tuition fee. If you are obliged to pay a tuition fee and are accepted onto a course or a programme, you have a chance to receive the scholarship. The exception is if you have notified us that you have other means of covering the fee. You do not have to send in a special application to be part of the scholarship selection process. Please note that you need to pay an application fee of 900 SEK (Swedish kronor), which must be received by the application deadline in order for your application to be processed. The application fee is non-refundable.

The scholarship only covers the tuition fee, and Uniarts does not have any scholarships that cover living costs during studies.

The decision on who will receive the scholarships is taken after the decisions on admittance have been made.

Criteria for Tuition Fee Scholarships

  • Tuition Fee Scholarships at Uniarts can be awarded to students at the university's master's programmes.
  • The assessment of to which student/students the scholarship(s) are to be awarded will be based on how these students can contribute to the educational environment through their experiences. These experiences can be of a personal or artistic nature or stem from previous academic or artistic studies.
