Study in Sweden
Higher education in Sweden is partially free and includes some of the world’s leading universities, with a strong focus on both research and practice. The level of education is constantly growing and international students enjoy the “freedom with responsibility” teaching style of Swedish universities and colleges. If this sounds good to you and you can’t wait to start your international experience in Sweden, then we’re here to provide the complete guide on how to apply to your dream Master’s degree offered by a Swedish university.
Application and tuition fees apply for students who are not citizens of an EU/EEA/Nordic country or Switzerland studying at the bachelor’s or master’s level.
The application fee is SEK 900. This fee is paid as part of your online application at Universityadmissions.se.
Tuition fees in Sweden vary depending upon the subject. The average fee for a master’s programme is SEK 129,000/year; bachelor’s programmes are generally less expensive.
A standard range of tuition fees for various subjects is shown below (the exact level may vary).

Students usually join the local student union for a small membership fee. This gives you access to various student activities and student discounts. Fees range from SEK 50-350 per semester, depending on the union. Your relevant student union can provide information on membership fees and benefits.
