Benefits

Scholarship grants may cover partial or up to the full tuition fee. The scholarship percentage awarded depends on budget available to the programme/faculty. It has no reflection on the students' academic level of excellence.  Please note that scholarships are toward tuition fees only and that living costs are not covered. Scholarship recipients must still be able to fund their living costs, as per the requirements of the Swedish Migration Agency.

  • You must be a citizen of a country from outside the EU/EEA (and Switzerland) and be required to pay tuition fees.
  • You have made a complete application in a regular application round to Bachelor's or Master's level studies leading to a degree at Lund University.
