Application and tuition fees for master's studies

A degree from KTH is an investment for life. For studies at KTH, application and tuition fees are required for some students.

Who is required to pay fees?

If you are a citizen of EU, EEA or Switzerland, you generally do not pay application and tuition fees. However, some joint programmes may charge fees from EU/EEA/Swiss citizens. If you are not a citizen of EU, EEA or Switzerland, you usually have to pay application and tuition fees, with some exceptions.
