Please note that it can take a day or two before your payment is registered.

Confirmation of Payment

As soon as your payment has been registered by Linköping University, you will receive payment confirmation on your Ladok for Students account.

Application for a residence permit and tuition fees

Until you have paid your fees, any application for a Swedish residence permit 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 March/April (international programmes): 

We encourage you to pay as soon as possible after receiving your admission result so that you can start applying for a residence permit. The payment must be received by LiU no later than 15 May

* If you are offered admission in July or later (other programmes/courses):

You must pay your tuition fee within 10 days of receiving your admission offer. All necessary information will be included in your notification on your account at

It is very important that you pay your tuition fees by the deadlines specified. The full amount must be paid within the deadline, division into further instalments is not accepted. If LiU has not received your payment by the payment due date, you will lose your study offer at Linköping University. Please note that bank transfers can take a long time.

Future payments

Once you are an enrolled student, you will need to pay tuition fees for each semester in advance. The payment must be received by LiU by the set deadlines. The full amount must be paid within the deadline. Smaller instalments than one semester at a time are not accepted.

These are the tuition fee deadlines for a two-year programme, for your reference:

  • Semester 2 tuition: 15 December
  • Semester 3 tuition: 10 August
  • Semester 4 tuition: 15 December

If you have not received an invoice one month before the deadline, you should contact

Please note, that students who do not pay their tuition fees for subsequent semesters by the deadlines will be suspended.


Paying your tuition fee

How to pay your tuition fee

Are you required to pay the tuition fee? In this video, we explain the process of paying your tuition fee in a bit more detail.


Will I receive a payment confirmation? 

As soon as your payment has been registered by LiU this will be visible on your Ladok account. You can download a payment confirmation as a PDF at Ladok for students.

Do I need to inform the Swedish Migration Agency that I have paid my tuition fee? 

No. The Swedish Migration Agency will get that information from LiU electronically.

If I want to pay in USD or Euro?

Yes, you can pay in Euro or USD. However, make sure you add extra money to pay for the exchange fee so you don't fall short of the full fee payment.

If you end up paying more than expected in the first instalment then this amount will be deducted on your next payment.

If I fail a course and need to re-register, do I have to pay for the course once more?

No. Once you have paid for one course you do not have to pay again when you re-register for the same course.

I'm already a student at LiU. What if I forget to pay my invoice for the next semester?

To continue your studies, the tuition fee for the next semester must be paid in full by the set deadline. Students who do not pay the tuition fee will be suspended. If you miss the deadline and pay late, we cannot guarantee that you will be allowed to continue your studies.

My tuition fee status has changed. What do I need to do? 

If your student status changes, you need to submit documents that certify the change, you will find more information here:

If you are unable to provide sufficient evidence, the fee-payer status will remain unchanged.

What if my fee-payer status changes after I have payed the tuition fee?

You might be eligible for a refund from the date stated on the decision.
