Tuition fee payment
Lund University issues an invoice in advance of each semester of study, with payment due before the start of the semester. The deadlines for Lund University tuition fee payments are:
Autumn semester studies (September–January):
- Invoices are generated and sent to you in the Student Portal during April.
- Payment is due by 20 May, however we strongly urge you to pay as early as possible in order to make your residence permit application on time.
Spring semester studies (January–June):
- Invoices are generated and sent to you in the Student Portal during November.
- Payment is due by 30 November.
If the payment is not received by the deadline, you will lose your place on the programme or course to which you have been conditionally admitted. If you need to apply for a payment extension please contact the Tuition Fee office well in advance of the deadline.
How to access your tuition fee invoice:
Tuition fee invoices are made available through the Student Portal. Newly admitted students are given information on how to activate their student accounts and then access the Lund University Student Portal shortly after the Notification of Selection Results are announced (i.e. in early April for autumn studies, and mid-October for spring studies). You will be able to view and pay your tuition invoice in the Lund University Student Portal.
There are two ways to pay your tuition fee:
- Online payment using a credit card (Visa or MasterCard)
- Payment by bank transfer
If you are granted a scholarship, the amount awarded will be deducted from your invoice accordingly, e.g. if you are awarded a 50% scholarship, your invoice will only include half of the tuition fee due for that semester.
Payment of the first semester of study
Once the tuition fee for the first semester of study is paid, Lund University will directly notify the Swedish Migration Agency that payment has been received so that you can start your residence permit application. We encourage you to submit your residence permit application documents as soon as possible once you have paid your tuition fee instalment, so that your residence permit can be processed in good time before the start of the first semester of your studies. However, please do not apply for the residence permit before May, as the Migration Agency cannot process your application earlier.
Payment of ongoing semesters of study
For each following semester of study, a tuition fee invoice is generated in advance of that semester and sent to you via the Student Portal where you can make your payment. Payment is due before the start of the semester as per the autumn and spring timeframes listed above.
Haven't received a tuition fee invoice?
Tuition fee invoices are generated shortly after you receive your Notification of Selection Results. The invoices are made available in the Student Portal. If you have received your Notification of Selection Results, and you still have not received your invoice within a couple of weeks, you should contact the Admissions Office at Lund University.
