Reports of attempted fraud

Fake invoices

We’ve received information that some applicants have received an invoice for tuition fees from University Admissions, and the Swedish Council for Higher Education (UHR) never send invoices to students. Please note:

  • BTH do not send invoices. Students receive their payment information via their BTH tuition fee account
  • Application fees are paid at Universityadmissions

If you receive an invoice saying it’s from, University Admissions, or UHR, please be sure to contact us. You can find contact information at University Admissions Support Centre.

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.
