Application for the study year 2019/20 is closed!
It is no longer possible to apply for the study year 2019/20,

courses within Fine Arts from another school in order to be
eligible for studies in the third term of either of our two
programmes. More information about that application and link to the
online application service you find here. Please note that this
application round is only available on Antagning.se and therefore
you find it only on our Swedish website.

offer the interview via Skype. All Swedish applicants who are in
the country at the time of the interviews we want you to come to

programme please be sure to decline your offer at

Application- and study fees
In 2011 application- and study fees were introduced in Sweden for
higher education for non EU/EEA, and Swiss, citizens.
Here you may find out if you are
required to pay any fees or not. If so, please see other pages on
universityadmissions.se for more information on how to pay first
the application fee and then the tuition fee. Remember that even if
you have citizenship in a European Union (EU), or a European
Economic Area (EEA) country, or Switzerland and are exempted from
paying fees you must send in proof of it in order for your
application to be processed. See here what you need to submit in if
you are an EU citizen. Here you find additional information
from Umeå University regarding tuition, fees and funding and FAQ on
application and tuition fees.
Last day to pay the
application fee if you are required to pay study fees, or to
show proof of exemption of fees if you are an EU citizen (do not
hold a Swedish citizenship), is on the 12th of March.
Required documents submitted after that date will mean your
application will be regarded as late and end up last in the
selection and/or even worse not be processed at all.
Umeå University offers a few scholarships for international
fee-paying students. These selections are made once annually, in
conjunction with the autumn term intakes. Selections are based only
on merit. To be
considered for this scholarship, an applicant must submit a
complete application for admissions before the application deadline
and have Umeå University as first choice for the applied
programme/education. See here for more information and the
online application form. Additional information regarding fees as
well as scholarships you may find here.
