From August 2011 (the autumn/fall semester) Swedish universities, including Karlstad University, introduced tuition fees for students from countries outside of the EU/EEA and Switzerland. This applies only for free movers and does not include exchange students.
Students who will pay fees:
- Fees are applicable only for citizens of countries outside the EU/EEA and Switzerland
- Fees will apply to undergraduate and graduate courses and programmes (i.e. bachelor’s and master’s level courses and programmes, first and second cycle).
Students who will not pay fees:
- Citizens of countries within the EU/EEA and Switzerland will not be charged fees.
- Exchange students (from all countries) will not be charged tuition fees.
- PhD programmes will not be affected.
- Students who already started their study programme before fees were introduced, will be able to complete their studies without paying fees until 31 December 2018. Note: this only applies to students enrolled on programmes.
