Tuition fees and funding

Students who are citizens of countries outside the European Union (EU), the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland are in general required to pay application and tuition fees for studies in Sweden.

Information about the total tuition fee for each course or programme is usually provided for the specific course or programme at Universityadmission. The fee does not include living expenses, such as accommodation, food, literature etc. Please note that the fee must be paid before the course or programme begins.


The Swedish government has established different scholarship schemes due to the introduction of tuition fees for students from outside of the EU/EEA/Switzerland.

GIH offers a scholarship scheme available for particularly qualified students coming from countries outside the EU/EEA/Switzerland. These scholarships cover only tuition fees and the students will need to cover their own living expenses.

To apply for the scholarship, tuition fee-paying students who have been admitted to a programme at GIH can fill in the below application form for a tuition fee waiver.
