Payment options Show/Hide content

There are two ways to pay your tuition: via credit card or by bank transfer.

Online payment using a credit card 

To pay with a credit card, go to the Pay-Online service below. VISA and MasterCard are accepted in the online payment service.

Your bank must have 3D secure version 2 in order for you to make your card payment. It is an extra security that was introduced on 1 January 2021 that some banks outside the EU have not updated.

To enable us to match your payment with your application, please make sure to use your University Admissions application number as your reference number.

Payment by bank transfer

Payment transaction must include the following information, to enable us to match your payment with your application: first name, surname, and your University Admissions application number.

Bank transfer can take a long time. Please follow these steps carefully:

1. Inform your bank about the deadline for payment and that Linköping University must have received your payment by the deadline.

2. Make sure that the transferred amount covers the tuition fee in SEK, regardless of any bank or exchange fees that may apply. Students are expected to meet the tuition fee costs at the SEK value, no shortfalls due to exchange fee fluctuations may arise.

Confirmation of Payment

As soon as your payment has been registered by Linköping University, you will receive a payment confirmation by e-mail. 

Application for a residence permit and tuition fees

Until you have paid your fees, any application for a residence permit to Sweden is incomplete. You should pay your tuition fees before you apply. It can take around three months for the Swedish Migration Agency to process an application for a residence permit. The Swedish Migration Agency will see in their system that your tuition fees are paid when they open your application.

Scholarship holders

If you have been granted a partial LiU International scholarship of 25-75%, pay the outstanding amount following the instructions above and then apply for a residence permit. When applying for a residence permit, attach the PDF showing recipients of the scholarship to your application to the Swedish Migration Agency (this will be posted to the LiU International Scholarship page).


If you are a recipient of a scholarship from the Swedish Institute, the information will be passed to LiU directly and you do not need to pay any tuition fees. Please apply for a residence permit as soon as you have received confirmation of your scholarship.

When to pay

* If you are offered admission in April: 

Newly admitted degree students will receive an e-mail with instructions regarding tuition fee payment, in mid-April, shortly after being accepted. No invoices will be issued.
The payment must be received by LiU no later than 1 June.  We encourage you to pay as soon as possible after receiving your admission result so that you can start applying for a residence permit.
