Application and tuition fees (NEW)
Application and tuition fees introduced in Sweden from autumn 2011
Following a decision by the Swedish Parliament in April 2010, students with citizenship in a country outside the European Union (EU), European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland will be required to pay tuition fees for their education at Swedish Higher Education Institutions, as of the autumn term 2011 (see below for exceptions). Tuition fees are to be introduced for programmes and courses at first cycle (Bachelor) and second cycle (Master) levels. Each institution determines the size of the fee based on the principle of full cost coverage.
The application fee amount for applying to the autumn term 2011 will be 900 SEK (Swedish kronor) per student. More information:
Tuition fees at KTH
KTH has decided upon the following fees for the academic year 2011/2012:
- Programmes and courses within all subject areas except for Architecture: 145 000 SEK (Swedish kronor) per academic year (60 ECTS)
- Programmes and courses within the subject area Architecture: 245 000 SEK (Swedish kronor) per academic year (60 ECTS)
For shorter study periods, i.e. those not amounting to a full academic year,
pricing will be based on the amount of credits in accordance with the above stated prices.
The tuition fee will be charged in advance for each term (30 ECTS).
Who is required to pay application and tuition fees?
In general, individuals who are citizens of countries outside of the European Union (EU), European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland are required to pay application and tuition fees. There are some exceptions to this general rule, for instance people who have a permanent residence permit or residence permit for reasons other than studies in Sweden. Exchange students, i.e. students registered at a university outside of Sweden who will be studying in Sweden on a temporary basis as part of an official study abroad programme are also exempted.

CELEBRITIES GO FOR GREEN ARCHITECTURE AND SUSTAINABLE URBAN DESIGN!
It was move-in day earlier this month for six Lower Ninth Ward families - thanks to Brad Pitt's Make It Right Foundation, and an unprecedented drive to built back green.
ALL PHOTOS: Make It Right Foundation
It’s a big, big moment for Pitt. For New Orleans. And for sustainable design. Thanks to designs by Billes Architecture, Concordia, Graft and KieranTimberlake Associates – and the support of millions around the world – It even landed Brad and his MIR Project on the cover of Architectural Digest – and rightly so. Renee Peck of New Orleans’ Times-Picayune noted the significance of it all in her blog:
“Brad Pitt's Make It Right houses in the Lower 9th Ward have stirred a lot of talk -- not only because of their megastar backer, but also for their futuristic designs and cutting-edge green components, such as rain gardens and solar cells.
Most people either love 'em or hate 'em.
Against this backdrop of 21st-century thinking, Pitt seems to understand the sense of place and tradition that defines New Orleans and its neighborhoods. It is a place, he realizes, where people want front porches. ‘New Orleans has its own mind, its own thing," he is quoted as saying. 'It has a real spirit. It's the most authentic of all American cities.’”
