Study offer for Ukrainian university students

Since the start of the war in Ukraine, we have worked on ways to open KTH for university students that have fled. Unfortunately, the application deadline for all applicants to programmes starting in autumn 2022 has passed. At this moment, it is not possible to transfer ongoing university studies to a programme at KTH. We are however looking into ways of accepting students into specific courses. Register your interest below and we will contact you.

Information session 22 April

KTH offered an information session for Ukrainian students who have protection under the EU Temporary Protection Directive and are interested in studying at KTH.

Temporary residence permit in Sweden

If you have left Ukraine on 24 February 2022 or later, you can seek protection and residence under the EU Temporary Protection Directive and receive a temporary residence permit in Sweden. With a resi­dence permit, you can apply for and study in Sweden without paying tuition fees. If you are not covered by the EU Temporary Protection Directive, you need to apply for and be admitted to studies first and then apply for a residence permit for studies based on that admission. In that case, you also need to pay tuition fees.
