Scholarships at UB

As of next semester, all Swedish universities are required by law to charge tuition fees from students who are citizens of countries outside the European Union, the European Economic Area and Switzerland. There are, however, some exceptions to this general rule. Two exceptions are students who study within an exchange programme and students who started a degree programme before autumn 2011 (they will be allowed to finish their degree without having to pay fees). You can read more about the tuition fees here.

The University of Borås can offer half or full scholarships to highly qualified students required to pay tuition fees. The scholarships can only cover tuition fees and not costs of living (the scholarship will not be paid out in cash but reduce the tuition fee). You need to be admitted to the study programme for which there is a scholarship and to have paid the application fee. Note that the awarding of scholarships will be based on study records and qualifications.

The Swedish Institute also offers scholarships to highly qualified students from 12 developing countries with which Sweden conducts long-term development cooperation.
