Tuition fees, scholarships and funding
There are no application or tuition fees for students who are citizens of the European Union (EU), the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland.
Students who are citizens of countries outside the European Union (EU), European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland are generally required to pay application and tuition fees. There are some exceptions to this general rule.
If you require a visa/residence permit you must present documents guaranteeing your financial support when applying for a visa.
The living cost for students is estimated to be around 8 190 SEK per month.
Scholarships & funding
Lund University has a scholarship programme targeted at top academic students from countries outside the EU/EEA (and Switzerland) called the Lund University Global Scholarship Programme and is also a partner in several Erasmus Mundus programmes.
The Swedish Institute also offers a limited number of scholarship programmes for international students.
For full information and details please see the Swedish Institute Scholarship information webpage.
Scholarships for current students
Your residence permit will allow you to work during your studies here in Lund. However, based on experience there is very little time left for work in addition to your studies and extra work is difficult to find if you don’t know Swedish, so you cannot rely on this for your financial support.
