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. At this moment, it is not possible to transfer ongoing university studies to a programme at KTH. However, we are looking into ways of accepting students into specific courses. Register your interest below and we will contact you.
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.
We offer one bachelor's programme in English, the bachelor's programme in Information and Communication Technology . The application for studies starting August 2023 has closed. The application for studies starting August 2024 will open in October 2023. Applying in the official application round is the only way of being admitted to the programme.
Language tests in Stockholm
Most applicants from Ukraine must demonstrate their English proficiency with an internationally recognised test to be eligible for the programme. Both IELTS and TOEFL provide test opportunities in Stockholm and online.
The application for master's programmes at KTH with studies starting August 2023 has closed. The application for studies starting August 2024 will open in October 2023. Applying in the official application round is the only way of being admitted to our master's programmes.
Courses for professional development
KTH offers free-standing courses taught in English aimed at professionals in engineering and technology. Courses are open for application twice a year. In addition to each course's admission requirements, you need to fulfil the general admission requirements for bachelor's or master's level studies in Sweden.
Only EU/EEA citizens or those with a Swedish resident permit granted on other basis than studies (including a temporary residence permit granted under the EU Temporary Protection Directive) are encouraged to apply. If you are a non-EU/EEA citizen without a Swedish resident permit, there will not be enough time to secure a resident permit before the start of your studies.
