A university degree is an investment in your future. For studies at Malmö University, some students are required to pay application and tuition fees.

About fees

Students with citizenship in countries outside of the European Union (EU), European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland are generally required to pay application and tuition fees.

Swedish citizens, as well as citizens of other EU/EEA countries or Switzerland, are not required to pay application and tuition fees. As an EU/EEA or Swiss citizen, you must upload documentation showing your citizenship to your application on University Admissions.

Fee-paying students are subject to the same services, rights and obligations as non-fee-paying students, such as study and career counselling, student health care, disability services, access to library and university facilities. 

What does the tuition fee cover?

For programme students, the tuition fee covers:

  • full-time studies on bachelor’s or master’s level, 60 credits per academic year;
  • an accommodation offer from University Housing (rent is not included);
  • one Swedish or English language course; 
  • comprehensive insurance (FAS by Kammarkollegiet) and 
  • administrative services.

Payment process

The tuition fee must be paid per academic year and in advance. It cannot be divided into smaller instalments. Below is a step-by-step guide on the payment process.

  1. An email with payment information will be sent to admitted students after the Notification of Selection Results have been published.
  2. Choose your payment method. We recommend students to pay by credit card.
  3. Make sure to allow for extra time when making the payment. Even if your bank statement shows the amount has been withdrawn, it may take up to a couple of weeks to confirm payments. 
  4. A confirmation email will be sent to you once Malmö University has received your payment. 
  5. Malmö University will inform your payment to the Swedish Migration Agency.

Fee-paying students are conditionally admitted as they are required to pay tuition fees. Please note that this status will not change in your University Admissions profile, even though Malmö University has confirmed your payment.

Payment deadline

Newly-admitted students (first-year payment): June 1, 2022

Current students (second or third-year payment): August 1, 2022

Consequences of late payments

If you pay after the deadline it cannot be guaranteed that you will get your residence permit in time for the start of the semester. This is due to the processing time needed by the Swedish Migration Agency. If you have questions concerning your application, please contact the Migration Agency.

The payment needs to be completed in order to register for studies. If you do not pay the tuition fees on time, you will be suspended from your studies until payment has been completed. 

Payment methods

Malmö University accepts the three payment methods listed below. Keep in mind that you are responsible for any charges from your bank and currency exchange fees associated with the payment.

Payment by credit card

Malmö University offers the option to pay by credit card online. Admitted students will receive detailed information on how to pay. 

Online credit card payment

Payment by international transfer

How to make an international transfer:

  • Inform your bank that you wish to make a transfer in Swedish Crowns (SEK). If your bank cannot transfer in Swedish Crowns, make sure the amount you transfer is equivalent to the invoiced amount of Swedish Crowns.
  • Include your name and personal identification number as a reference with the transfer (you can find your personal identification number on the top-left corner of your Notification of Selection Results).

If your plans change and you will not study at Malmö University, you can request for a tuition fee refund. The application fee to University Admissions is an administrative fee and is non-refundable. Below are some situations where students are entitled to a tuition fee refund.

Refunds before enrolment

A full tuition fee refund is granted to students who request a refund before registering for studies. The refund request form should be completed as soon as possible.

All refund applications submitted before enrolment are approved regardless of the basis for the request. Such basis include, but are not limited to, a rejection of residence permit application and/or deciding not to commence or continue studies.

Refunds for early withdrawal

Students who have registered for a programme but decide to leave their studies can apply for an early withdrawal. An early withdrawal must be made within the first 21 days into the semester for a student to be granted a full tuition fee refund. 

Students must submit a notification of withdrawal and a completed refund request form to be granted a full or partial tuition fee refund.
