Payment process

Tuition fees should be paid directly to the University of Borås. If you are required to pay tuition fees, you will receive a payment plan from the university after the selection.

The tuition fee should be paid in advance, one semester at a time. If you do not pay your tuition fee before the advised deadline on the payment plan, you will not be allowed to register at the university and begin your studies.

Please note that if you at any time during your time at the University of Borås fail to pay your tuition fees on time, you risk being suspended.

All tuition fees are to be paid in Swedish Krona (SEK). Any additional bank charges must be paid by the student.

Payment of tuition fees

Tution fees must be paid prior to the start of each semester. The deadlines are:

30 May for an autumn semester

15 December for a spring semester


Tuition fees and residence permits

We urge you to pay your tuition fee as soon as possible after you are admitted. After receiving the payment confirmation from the university you can proceed and make an application for residence permit.Your application for residence permit will be processed more quickly if your tuition fee has been paid.

Tuition fee refunds

The University of Borås does not refund tuition fees unless it has been established that special circumstances exist which makes it impossible for the student to start the programme or attend lectures. E.g. if a student who has paid the tuition fee does not get a residence permit the university can refund the tuition fee. If a student for some reason is suspended (completely or temporary), the university does not refund the tuition fee.

A student who wishes to have his/her tuition fee refunded should send an e-mail to admissions@hb.se explaining the situation and apply for a refund.

Appeal procedure

If you are suspended because you have not paid the tuition fees on time, you have the right to appeal the suspension to the Board of Appeals. No other decisions regarding payment of tuition fees can be subject to appeal.
