Master’s studies


Prospective Students

Students from outside the European Union (EU), European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland are required to pay application and tuition fees to study at university level in Sweden. Students are liable to pay for each course in which they are registered. Fees cover application and tuition alone and are not related to accommodation, academic literature or the general cost of living. If you want to read extra courses outside the programme you have to pay for these. If you fail a course you are registered on, you will not be reimbursed or able to use the fee for another course.

The application fee for all non-EU, EEA or Swiss students is SEK 900.

The cost of individual Master’s programmes can be found by selecting the programme you are interested in and reading the information under Application and Requirements.

Programmes within the humanities and social sciences have two different costs depending on the courses that are given.  Some courses are more expensive than others.

Every Master's programme has a study plan. As a fee paying student at Uppsala University you have to follow this study plan. If you for some reason need to make a change in your study plan, it is important that you contact your programme coordinator/director.

How to pay

Exemptions from Application and Tuition Fees

Some international students will be exempt from paying student fees, for example students who have a Swedish residence permit granted on the basis of something other than studies. Detailed information about fee exemption can be found on If a fee-paying student’s residency status changes during their studies (e.g. they are granted European citizenship), they must submit documentation to Uppsala University to certify the change. However, a change in residency status after the commencement of studies will not warrant any form of retroactive compensation.

Exchange and doctoral studies

Formal exchange students at Uppsala University are exempt from paying tuition fees, as well as application fees, for their exchange courses at Uppsala University. Third cycle studies (Doctoral/PhD studies) are free of charge in Sweden, thus doctoral students are exempt from paying tuition fees for doctoral level courses taken as part of their doctoral studies at Uppsala University.
