Tuition fees

All admitted fee-paying students will receive an email with an invoice and details about tuition fee payment. Here you will find information about the process.

Payment of tuition fees

The tuition fee will be charged in advance for each semester (30 ECTS credits for full-time studies). The tuition fee is based on price per credit. This means that your tuition fee will increase if you take more than 30 ECTS credits per semester.

An invoice for the first semester is sent, by email, on 13 April 2021. The due date for paying the tuition fee is 31 May 2021. If your invoice has not been paid by 31 May 2021, you will receive an e-mail reminder from the KTH Finance Office on 1 June 2021. The final deadline for the receipt of your tuition fee payment will be 11 June 2021.

The tuition fee must be received by KTH absolutely latest by June 11, 2021. If your payment is not received by this date you will lose your seat in the programme.

If you decide not to attend the programme you have been offered a place in, please be sure to decline your offer. You can do this at Log in to your account, go to Applications and follow the instructions. Please also notify your programme coordinator and  as soon as possible.

Payment and repayment of fees to/from Iran

Due to international regulations, it is currently not allowed for Swedish universities to pay money to Iran. You should be aware of this already when you make a payment, and be careful about which account you choose to make the payment from. A reimbursement is always made to the same account as the payment was originally made from. Consequently, we recommend that you choose a payment method that works also if a refund must be made.


Reimbursement for newly admitted students

Due to COVID-19 KTH has temporarily changed our rules regarding tuition fee reimbursement for newly admitted students. If you wish to withdraw from your studies and you have already paid your tuition fee, you will receive a full reimbursement if you apply for a refund before the start of the autumn term, provided that you have not yet registered and started your studies.

Cancelled degree programme or single course

Students admitted to a degree programme or single course that is cancelled by KTH before the start of the programme/course are entitled to reimbursement.

How to request for reimbursement

A written request for reimbursement, including supporting documentation certifying the extenuating circumstances for reimbursement, shall be sent to  for assessment. Students newly admitted to studies starting autumn 2021 applying for reimbursement before the start of the autumn term do not need to include any supporting documentation. The decision on reimbursement is made by the university director. Please note that in all cases where a reimbursement is sought, the amount to be reimbursed can only be paid to the same bank account from which the payment originated.
