How to apply for a refund

An application for a refund is made via your BTH tuition fee account.

The tuition fee is only reimbursed if there are special grounds for a refund. These special grounds are:

  • If the student does not receive a Swedish residence permit.
  • If the student has been conditionally admitted to a programme or course because he or she had not yet received a Bachelor’s degree certificate at the time of application, but does not meet the requirement to hold a degree by the start of the semester, and is therefore not permitted to begin the programme
  • If BTH retracts its offer of a study place or is unable to offer the programme concerned.

You should also read the local Terms and conditions: Conditions regarding tuition fees and scholarships at Blekinge Institute of Technology

Refunds are always made to the same credit card or bank account number as you have used when the payment was made. This applies regardless of whether you have paid from your own account or through another account holder.

Any bank charges will be deducted from the amount refunded.

Refunds are made in SEK (Swedish Krona) and BTH does not take exchange rates in to consideration.

A decision from BTH regarding a refund cannot be appealed.

Processing time of refund applications

The normal processing time is two to three weeks.

The bank has informed us that they at the moment are experiencing delays, and the processing time is considerable longer. We do not have any information on how long exactly the refund will take.

An update will be made as soon as we have more information.
