May - Invoices are sent to admitted students

Invoices are sent to admitted students in the first admission round.

For students who are admitted late (have made a late application/have been placed as on waiting list and are now being offered a study seat) the invoices will be sent on a weekly basis.

June - Deadline for payment of the tuition fee

We want to underline that you should pay with due haste but as it will not be possible for some students to make the payment by the formal deadline of June 4th, payments will be accepted until the end of June. However, please note that if you pay any later than June 4th it will take longer to register payment in our educational database and thus for the Migration Agency to be notified. 


Residence permit application

Once the tuition fee instalment has been paid, students may apply for a residence permit for studies.

If you have applied in the second admission round

Students from a country outside the EU/EEA will most likely not have enough time to apply for and receive their residence permit before the start of the semester if admitted in the Second admissions round. Students who wish to proceed with the payment of the first instalment, despite the residence permit difficulties that are likely to occur, should be informed of the following:

  • Students need to reply to the First Notification of Selection Results by 23 July on
  • The invoices can unfortunately not be sent until after the second notification of selection results has been published (29 July 2021), as students are not considered to be definitely admitted until then.
  • Once the invoice has been received, the tuition fee should be paid promptly and a residence permit application should be done as soon as possible after the payment.

Information on how to pay the tuition fee can be found on our website.
