The following is taken from theGuidelines regarding application and tuition fees for degree programmes and courses at KTH Royal Institute of Technology
Please observe: 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.
The tuition fee can be fully reimbursed if a cancellation of studies is caused by extenuating circumstances beyond the student’s control. For example extenuating circumstances can be that the student’s cancellation of studies is due to their residence permit having not been granted. It can also be serious illness or death of the student, the student’s partner or member of the immediate family that prevents the student from attending the education. Under these circumstances the upcoming or ongoing semester’s tuition fees can be reimbursed.
A written request for reimbursement, including supporting documentation certifying the extenuating circumstances for reimbursement, shall be sent to
for assessment. Reimbursement can be made up to the amount corresponding to the remaining ECTS credits for the current semester. For the upcoming semester the whole amount of the tuition fee, excluding transaction fees shall be reimbursed. The decision on reimbursement is made by the university director.
For new students
If the tuition fee has been paid and you apply for reimbursement before the tuition fee payment deadline you will receive full reimbursement. If you apply for reimbursement after the tuition fee payment deadline but before the start of the semester you will receive 85% of the fee reimbursed.
Change of fee status
Reimbursement of the tuition fee for the upcoming semester can be made up until the start of the semester. When a change in fee status is made during an ongoing semester, reimbursement of the tuition fee is not possible.
A written request for reimbursement, including supporting documentation certifying the change in fee status, shall be sent to
for assessment. The decision on reimbursement is made by the university director.
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.
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.
