Payment and repayment of fees to and from Belarus, Iran and Russia

Due to international regulations, KTH is not allowed to conduct monetary transactions with Belarus, Iran and Russia. You should be aware of this when you make a payment and be careful which account you choose to make the payment from. Reimbursement is always made to the same account from which the payment originated. Consequently, we recommend selecting a payment method that works if a refund must be made.


Reimbursement for newly admitted students

KTH can provide full reimbursement if the request for reimbursement reaches KTH by the invoice due date. If the request reaches KTH after the invoice due date but before the start of the semester, we can reimburse 85 % of the tuition fee. In this case, full reimbursement is possible only if extenuating circumstances exist. If the request arrives after the start of the semester, reimbursement is only possible if extenuating circumstances exist.

Reimbursement for ongoing studies

The tuition fee for the upcoming or ongoing semester can be reimbursed if extenuating circumstances exist. If the semester is ongoing, you can be reimbursed a sum equal to the remaining ECTS credits of the semester. For upcoming semesters, a full reimbursement excluding transaction fees, is possible. 

Extenuating circumstances

Extenuating circumstances are occurrences beyond the student's control that prevent them from starting or continuing their studies, for example, severe illness or death of the student, the student's partner or a member of the immediate family. Extenuating circumstances may also be deemed in cases where the student’s residence permit is not approved in time, if due to reasons beyond the student’s control.

Change of fee status

If your fee status changes and you have already paid your tuition fee for an upcoming semester, reimbursement is possible until the start of the semester. If your fee status changes during the semester, reimbursement for that ongoing semester is impossible.

How to request reimbursement

You must send a written request for reimbursement, including supporting documentation certifying the extenuating circumstances, to  for assessment. The university director decides on reimbursement. We can only refund the payment to the same bank account from which it originated.
