There are different rules depending on what country you are from.

Applicants from the European Union (EU), European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland:
Blekinge Institute of Technology (BTH) does not charge any tuition fees for students with a citizenship within the EU/EEA and Switzerland. Information for British citizens regarding Brexit can be found on Universityadmissions web site.

Applicants from countries outside the European Union (EU), European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland
Students with citizenship in a country outside the EU/EEA and Switzerland are required to pay both application and tuition fees. To find out if you are required to pay tuition fees, please read the information on Universityadmissions.

How much you should pay is dependent on the course/programme you are admitted to. The information is available once the application period opens on www.universityadmissions.se

If you have been admitted to a one or two year programme you are expected to pay one whole semester in advance.

If you have been admitted to a single subject course, you have to pay for a whole course in advance.

Included in the tuition fees are studies and study related issues such as study administration, study/career counselling, access to the student health professionals at BTH (nurse, counselor, etc.), library access, study and computer labs, assistance in finding accommodation and in opening a bank account, etc.

Students that started a course or programme at BTH before 1 July 2011, had the opportunity to finish that course or programme without paying tuition fees until December 31st, 2018 (Transitional  regulations 2010:543). If the studies were not completed by December 31st, 2018, students are now required to pay tuition fee.

Information for students from Iran
Due to international regulations, Swedish universities are currently prohibited to pay money to Iran. This might affect you if you require a repayment, so you should be mindful about which account you choose to make a payment from. We recommend that you choose a payment method that works if a refund has to be made.

False phone calls regarding residence permits
BTH would like to raise your attention to fraud attempt regarding residence permits. It has come to our attention that students have been contacted regarding their residence permit applications. The callers have claimed to be calling from an embassy and/or referred to https://government.se/.

Applications for residence permits (including extensions) are handled only by the Swedish Migration Agency. The Swedish Migration Agency, or the Swedish Embassy, never discuss fees or other money issues over the phone.

If you have received a suspicious phone call, kindly contact the International Office at BTH as well as the Swedish Migration Agency or the the Swedish Embassy.
