Tuition fees - terms of payment

In general, citizens of countries other than EU/EEA and Switzerland are required to pay tuition fees. Cf. Am I required to pay? by the Swedish National Application Service.

1. When to pay

Tuition fee payments are to be made in advance. Normally, the deposit covers one semester at a time.

New students:

If you are a new student about to start your first semester at Linköping University, the payment is due on 1 June for the Autumn semester.

Application for residence permit:

The residence permit application process at the Swedish Migration Agency can take around 3 months.  You need to submit a complete application (including proof of payment) in order for it to be processed more quickly. Therefore, paying as soon as possible gives you better chances to obtain the permit in time.

Scholarship holders:

  • If you have been granted a 100% scholarship from Linköping University, you will not receive an invoice. You can apply for a residence permit once you have received your scholarship offer (attach print-out from the scholarship website to your application).
  • If you have been granted a scholarship from the Swedish Institute, the information will be communicated to Linköping University directly, and you will not receive an invoice. Apply for residence permit once you have received your SI scholarship offer.
  • If you have been granted a partial scholarship of 75-50% or a tuition fee reduction of 25%, please wait for the invoice, pay the remaining amount, and then apply.
Enrolled students:

Once you are enrolled, you will need to pay tuition fee for each coming semester in advance.

Deadlines:

Semester 1: 1 June
Semester 2: 15 December
Semester 3: 10 August
Semester 4:  15 December

2. How to pay

Enrolled students:

Please refer to the payment information on the right-hand side of this webpage and the invoice. Use the reference from the invoice.

New students:

Admitted students will receive an e-mail with an invoice for the first semester at the end of April.

There are two ways to pay:

  • Online payment using a credit card (only VISA and MasterCard are accepted). Please use the payment service to the right.
  • Payment by bank transfer

Bank transfer can take a long time. Please follow these steps carefully:

1. Inform your bank that the deadline for payment is 1 June and Linköping University must have received your payment by this deadline.

2. Important! The transferred amount must include all and any bank fees. No shortfalls due to exchange fee fluctuations may arise. Linköping University has to receive the amount that is stated in your invoice after the deduction of fees. Linköping University issues the invoices in SEK only. Students are expected to meet the tuition fee costs at the SEK value, regardless of any changes in exchange rates.

3. Payment transaction must include following:

  • first name,
  • surname,
  • invoice number or reference number

Otherwise we cannot match your payment with your application.

Bank information:

Name of bank: Danske Bank

IBAN: SE13 1200 0000 0128 1011 7713
Account no: 12810117713
BIC/SWIFT: DABASESX

When paying tuition fee from a Swedish bank, use “bankgiro 5050-0016"

3. What is included in the tuition fee

For students on a master's programme, the fee normally covers a workload of 30 credits per semester. Certain variation may be allowed, e.g. 28 credits in Autumn semester and 32 credits in Spring semester, as long as courses are included in the programme and the total does not exceed 120 credits for a two-year master's programme. For any additional courses there will be an additional fee.

The fee also covers study related issues such as study administration, study and career counselling, student health care, library access, computer labs etc.

Moreover, the fee includes a student housing offer (applicable if the first instalment is paid by the deadline), one semester of introduction to the Swedish language (15 credits) and the Swedish State's Insurance for fee-paying students.

Period of study:

Tuition fee is calculated based on number of credits, not number of semesters. Therefore, students who have not completed their studies within the normal period of study have the right to complete their studies in the course of the following academic year without paying extra tuition fees.

Students who complete their studies in less than the normal number of semesters must still pay tuition fees for the full number of semesters.

4. Not included in the tuition fee

Course literature, housing costs, living expenses, etc. You will need approximately SEK 8.010 (see Budget) a month for such expenses.

5. Students who do not pay on time

Admitted students who have not paid their tuition fees for semester 1 on time will not be able to enroll at LiU. Students in semester 1, 2 and 3 who do not pay their tuition fees for the coming semester will no longer be able to enroll for courses or examinations.

6. Leave of absence

Enrolled paying students are subject to the general rules at Linköping University regarding leave of absence. However, paying students must submit an application for leave of absence no later than 14 days prior to payment deadline for the coming semester in order to avoid paying tuition fees.

Please contact your faculty's international coordinator for assistance with providing you with a leave of absence. 

Depending on how far the studies have progressed and when the refund form reaches the Admissions Office, only a part of fee may be reimbursed or no reimbursement made.

A written request with any supporting documentation necessary has to be submitted to the Admissions Office. Read more about refunds.

After 15 November /15 April, no reimbursements will be made.

Please contact your faculty's international coordinator for assistance with providing you with the withdrawal from studies.
