Tuition fees and payment

Tuition fees

Students with citizenship in countries outside the EU/EEA and Switzerland are required to pay application and tuition fees. Please consult University Admissions external linkto find out more about application and tuition fees, and whether or not you are required to pay them.

The application fee for all non-EU, EEA and Swiss students is 900 SEK. The tuition fee for a specific programme or course can be found under the programme or course informationexternal link. The fees vary depending on the study field and level.

Fees cover application and tuition alone and are not related to accommodation, academic literature or the general cost of living.

Full-time study is 30 credits per semester. The tuition fee is paid per semester and before each semester starts. Students are required to pay for each course in which they are registered. If you intend to study more than 30 credits you will be required to pay additional tuition. If you fail a course or a programme you are registered on, you will not be reimbursed or able to use the fee for another course/programme.

New student

Payment of tuition fees

Once you have received notification of your admission to Halmstad University, you will receive an invoice by email with the tuition fee of the first semester. Information on how and when payment should be made will be stated in the invoice document. The payment should be made by bank transfer and the fee is to be paid in Swedish kronor (SEK). If payment is not made on time, the admission will be cancelled. We do not accept payment in installments.

If you have been granted a scholarship, the amount awarded will be deducted from your invoice accordingly.

Once the fee for the first semester is paid, you can apply for your residence permit through the Swedish Migration Board. You will receive a confirmation of your payment by email and we will also notify the Migration Board from our side.

Please note that special payment rules apply if the original payment has been made from an account in Iran. Due to international regulations, it is currently not allowed for Swedish universities to transfer money to Iran. Before you make the payment, we recommend that you choose an account or a payment method which the university can use if a refund must be made.

Reimbursement of fees

The application fee is an administrative fee and is non-refundable.

The tuition fee can be reimbursed:

  • if your application for visa is rejected
  • if you have been conditionally admitted and do not meet the entry requirements by registration day

Halmstad University does not grant reimbursement for financial reasons. For detailed information, please see Regulations for the payment of tuition fees.

The application for reimbursement must be in writing and the application should be received during the current semester. You must submit supporting documents together with the application, we will only accept certified copies of documents. Send your application to:

If a decision on reimbursement has been made, Halmstad University will reserve the right to retain a fixed amount of the tuition fee for administrative expenses. Decisions on reimbursement are made by the Head of the Student Affairs Department.

Please be aware that a reimbursement is always made to the same account as the payment was originally made from. This applies regardless of whether you have paid from your own account or through another account holder.

Current student

Payment of tuition fees

The tuition fee is paid per semester and payment must be done before each semester starts. You will receive an invoice to your student email account. Payment of the tuition fee is made by bank transfer or credit card at Service Center. We do not accept payments in installments.

Current students who do not pay the tuition fee can not register at the programme/course.

If you have been awarded a Halmstad University Scholarship or Swedish Institute Scholarship, you must meet the conditions to keep the scholarship for the continuation of the programme. If the conditions are met, the amount awarded will be deducted from the original fee on the invoice. For detailed information, please see the Regulations for the awarding of ScholarshipsPDF (pdf, 71.8 kB).

Requirements for progression

You must also meet the requirements for progression in your studies before you can continue your studies and we can send the invoice. There might be requirements of completed courses and credits to be able to register on the second semester, the thesis and especially between year 1 and year 2. Please check your programme/course syllabus to make sure that you are aware of the amount of credits or courses you have to complete.

Change of status

If the student’s status of requirement to pay tuition fees is changed, the student needs to apply for tuition fee exemption at the Student Affairs Department. The student is responsible for attaching a decision of changed residence permit/residency to prove that tuition fee exemption applies. Decisions on changed status to tuition fee exemption applies from the following semester. The decision is therefore not retroactive and tuition fee(s) paid for commenced programmes/courses will not be reimbursed. Send your application to:

Changes of study plan

As a fee-paying student you have to follow the syllabi of each course or programme. If you need to make changes in your study plan, you need to contact your programme director and inform the Student Affairs Department.

Studies abroad

If your programme include studies abroad or if you wish to take part in an exchange programme during your studies at Halmstad University, the tuition fee for the period spent abroad still needs to be paid.

Application fee amount will be 900 SEK (Swedish kronor) for students from outside the EU/EES and Switzerland.
