Newly admitted degree programme students

Congratulations on your admission to KTH! Exciting times await you, and we look forward to meeting you in August. It's now time for you to start preparing for your move to Stockholm. To help you out, we have gathered all information you need; just follow the necessary steps below. Also, join our webinars to get further support with each step and chat with KTH staff.

2. Pay your tuition fee

If you need to pay a tuition fee, you will receive an invoice for the first semester in your email after the admissions results are published.

3. Apply for a residence permit

If you are not a citizen of an EU/EEA country, you need to apply for a residence permit. Please note that you must have paid the first instalment of the tuition fee before applying for a residence permit

4. Figure out your insurances

Make sure you have additional medical insurance coverage in case of an emergency or if you fall ill during an off-campus activity.

5. Find accommodation

It's time for you to start looking for accommodation. Some student groups are guaranteed housing through KTH Accommodation, while others need to find housing on their own.

6. Apply for our language courses

We offer pre-sessional courses in English and Swedish. Some students are given priority to a place in these courses, but everyone can apply.
