For studies at Malmö University, some students are required to pay application and tuition fees. This website contains programme price lists, a step-by-step guide on the payment process, accepted payment methods, and information about refunds.

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.

Due to the requirements of the Swedish Migration Agency, students required to pay tuition fees need to pay their first tuition fee instalment – for the first semester of studies – before submitting a residence permit application for studies in higher education to the Swedish Migration Agency.

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. 

Tuition fees do not apply for exchange students, PhD students or EU/EEA students.

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.

How to apply for a tuition fee refund

Submit the form below to apply for a tuition fee refund. A decision on your refund application is normally made within 4 weeks.

Refund payments are always made in SEK and Malmö University does not take into account changes in the exchange rate.

Processing time

The processing time can take longer if you submit a refund application in August-September. You will be notified of the decision by email. The total processing time for the refund to reach your account might be longer if you paid by international bank transfer.

Approved refunds

Approved refunds are always made to the same account from which the payment was originally made.

If the payment was made by card, the refund will be made to the same card. If the payment was made by bank transfer, the refund will be made to the same account. This rule applies regardless of whether you have paid from your own card/account or through another card/account holder. No exception to this rule can be made.

Payment and repayment of fees to and from Belarus, Iran and Russia

Due to international regulations, it is currently not allowed for Swedish universities to conduct monetary transactions with Belarus, Iran and Russia. You should be aware of this when you make a payment to Malmö University, and be conscious about the account you choose to make the payment from. A reimbursement is always made to the same account the payment was originally made from. Consequently, we recommend that you choose a payment method that works even if a refund must be made.
