There’s a great thread regarding the introduction of fees at the StudyinSweden site – I’m a little out of the loop right now (due to the work I’m doing with Lund University’s web development project) so expect to see more updated information there.
Tuition fees will be implemented in 2011, and the Swedish authority for Higher Education services says that application fees should be introduced at the same time – not 2010 as previously thought.
See the press release here (In Swedish)
Finally, the official confirmation for the introduction of fees:
The Swedish Government, on the 10th September, said:
“In the 2010 Budget Bill, the Government proposes that foreign students wishing to study in Sweden should pay fees.”
Note that the press release identifies a grant system, but details of this must wait until the Autumn.
