Cost of Education in Sweden

Planning your budget is an important part of preparing to study in Sweden. Though Sweden has a reputation for being an expensive country to live in, but in terms of education it is exactly opposite to that of its living expenses. The cost of the education in Sweden depends on the course one opts for, and may start around 7,000 Euro per year.

Karolinska Institute– average tuition fees 35,500 EUR/year

Stockholm University– average tuition fees 24,000 EUR/year

Lund University– average tuition fees 22,000 EUR/year

Study materials cost:

On average, expect to spend about 75 Euro per month on textbooks. In some subjects, like law and natural sciences, this figure is likely to be higher. Many student unions organize book sales where students can buy used textbooks cheaply; it’s also common for students to post notices on campus selling their used copies of previous years’ textbooks. Websites for buying used textbooks are also popular.

Other Cost:

Students usually join the local student union for a small membership fee. This gives you access to various student activities and student discounts. Fees range from 5 – 35 Euro per semester, depending on the union.


The Swedish Institute grants hundreds of scholarships every year to help foreign students make their stay in Sweden more affordable. Currently, tuition fees for everyone are fully subsidized by the state. Sweden’s public spending on education is the OECD’s highest, at 4.9% of GDP.
