Students not located in Sweden may have problems attending a course at KTH
You cannot be granted a residence permit in Sweden based on a freestanding course at KTH.
To start a course, you need a KTH Account which can be activated with Mobile BankID or by visiting KTH’s campus. If you do not have Mobile BankID or are not able to visit campus, you cannot start a course.
Please also note that our freestanding courses have an administrative turnaround time that may make it difficult for fee-paying students to pay the tuition fee and start a course in time. If you are an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen or hold a residence permit in Sweden for something other than studies you generally do not have to pay tuition fees.
