Freestanding courses are not available for fee-paying applicants

Our freestanding courses are currently only available to applicants that are not required to pay tuition fees. If you are an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen or hold a residence permit for something other than studies in Sweden, you generally do not pay tuition fees. The late application deadline for these courses, combined with the administrative turnaround time of application, admittance and tuition fees, means that fee-paying applicants do not have time to start any of our freestanding courses in time. Also, it is not possible to get a residence permit in time before studies start.

Degree studies at KTH

Freestanding courses can normally not be combined into a KTH degree. For this purpose, you must have been admitted to a study programme at KTH. KTH offers one three-year bachelor's degree programme and over 60 two-year master's degree programmes in English.
