Tuition fee payment
As a student from outside the EU/EEA and Switzerland, one of the first things you need to do when being admitted to Halmstad University is to pay the tuition fee.
Tuition fees for international students
Tuition fee-paying students are admitted on the condition that the tuition fee has been paid. The tuition fee is paid per semester and before each semester starts. If payment is not made on time, the admission will be cancelled.
Once you have received notification of your admission to Halmstad University, you will receive an email with instructions on how to log in and download your invoice in Student Ladok.
You must write the reference number stated in the invoice and the student's name when you make the payment. We need the reference number to be able to verify your payment.
You can pay the fee by bank transfer or online payment by credit card. The cards we accept are Visa, MasterCard, and Maestro.
If you want to pay online by credit card, please use the form via below link.
The fee is to be paid in Swedish kronor (SEK), and the student is responsible for their own bank charges; please make sure that the fee payment covers the bank charges and/or currency differences. We do not accept payment in instalments.
Please note that special payment rules apply if the original payment has been made from an account in Iran. Due to international regulations, it is currently not permitted for Swedish universities to transfer money to Iran. Before you make the payment, we recommend that you choose an account or a payment method which the university can use if a refund must be made. Please also make sure that this payment method will work to pay the tuition fee during the entire study period.
