Tuition payments during studies
The following information is for current students at Lund University who are required to pay tuition fees for their studies.
Invoices for your next tuition fee instalment
The first tuition fee instalment is paid before starting your studies at Lund University. The information below is regarding the following payments. A tuition fee invoice is generated in advance of each semester of studies.
Key dates and deadlines for tuition fee payments during ongoing studies (your second or later semesters)
Autumn semester studies
Invoices for autumn semesters are generated in May and payment is due by 1 August.
Spring semester studies
Invoices for spring semesters are generated in November and payment is due by 15 December.
How to pay your tuition fee instalment
The instructions and accepted methods of payment are explained once you log into the payment portal. Questions may be directed to tuitionfees [at] eken [dot] lu [dot] se (tuitionfees[at]eken[dot]lu[dot]se).
Please note that it may take a few days for your payment to be processed and registered. You will only be able to register (enrol) for the courses/the semester you are about to start after the payment is registered.
If you miss the payment deadline
If the payment is not received by the deadline, you will not be able to register for any courses in your programme and you risk suspension. If you need to apply for a payment extension you must contact the Tuition Fee Office before the payment deadline.
Overpayment or underpayment of tuition fee invoice
Due to the fluctuation of currency exchange rates, there may be instances where a student inadvertently pays slightly more than the required tuition fee instalment or slightly less than the required tuition fee instalment.
Lund University has the following policy regarding overpayment/underpayment and the resulting refund or generation of a further invoice:
- Where there has been an overpayment of SEK 100 or more from the invoiced tuition instalment, this difference shall be refunded to the student either as an adjustment to the next invoice for the following semester of study, or as a direct refund if there are no further semesters to be invoiced.
- Where there has been an underpayment of SEK 100 or more from the invoiced tuition instalment, this difference must be paid with an additional payment in order to reach full payment of the invoice.
- Where the underpayment or overpayment is less than SEK 100, no action will be taken.
For more information please contact tuitionfees [at] eken [dot] lu [dot] se (tuitionfees[at]eken[dot]lu[dot]se).
Payment for extra courses if you are studying a degree programme
Degree programmes are made up of several courses, each worth a certain value of ECTS credits. In a degree programme you usually complete 30 ECTS credits per semester, or a total of 60 ECTS credits per year. Note that some degree programmes have a structure where you complete slightly more than 30 ECTS credits in one semester and slightly less than 30 ECTS credits the next semester. However the overall total of credits for the full degree programme will still be either 60 ECTS for a 1-year programme, 120 ECTS credits for a 2-year programme or 180 ECTS credits for a 3-year programme.
If you are a non-EU/EEA student and you would like to study more ECTS credits than what is required for your degree programme (for example, if you wish to take an extra elective course option than what is required, or if you wish to take a separate free-standing single subject course on offer at Lund University), then generally you will need to pay a tuition fee for these extra ECTS credits (the extra course/courses).
Extra ECTS credits (the courses) will show in your Ladok record at Lund University, which is checked each semester. If you have exceeded the number of credits required for your degree programme within a semester of studies (usually this means any credits exceeding 30 ECTS per semester), you will need to pay for these additional credits. If you cannot find an invoice for the additional credits, please contact tuitionfees [at] eken [dot] lu [dot] se (tuitionfees[at]eken[dot]lu[dot]se)
Students with a Lund University Global Scholarship or a Swedish Institute scholarship
For students who have been awarded the Lund University Global Scholarship or a Swedish Institute scholarship, the scholarship money can only be applied to the degree programme to which it was awarded. Therefore if you wish to take additional ECTS credits (i.e. another course outside of the ECTS requirements of the programme to which you are enrolled), then you will be invoiced for those extra ECTS credits.
