Terms and Conditions for payment (summary)

  • Students who are liable to pay tuition are conditionally admitted* until the first installment has been paid in full.
  • The tuition fee for the first semester (out of four) will be invoiced as soon as the student has been conditionally admitted.
  • The payment must arrive no later than 17 May the year the student is admitted.
  • Each invoice will cover the tuition fee for one semester.
  • A student who has been awarded a scholarship** by Chalmers will follow the same procedures as all fee paying students.
  • As a non EU/EES citizen you may have been exempted from the application fee since current studies (at the time of application) at a Swedish university entitles you to an exemption.  This does not automatically exempt you from paying tuition at Chalmers.
  • Chalmers will notify the Swedish Migration board when the tuition fee has been paid in full. Note the importance of submitting the application for a student permit as soon as possible.  You may apply as soon as you receive an offer of a study seat at Chalmers.

​*) Admitted students who are required to pay tuition fees according to Swedish law are conditionally admitted until the tuition fee has been paid in full and by the deadline specified on the invoice.

**) Any scholarship granted by Chalmers will be deducted from the tuition fee and the invoice will state the tuition fee after the deduction specific to each scholarship. The scholarship amount may increase after the first year for the IPOET and the Avancez scholarships and the tuition fee will be altered accordingly.
