There are different possibilities to be awarded a scholarship for non-European students on the master programmes. These scholarships cover the tuition fees (and also living expenses for the Swedish Institute’s scholarships).
Umeå University scholarships
Umeå University offers scholarships to international students from outside the EU/EEA.
Those eligible to apply for these scholarships are:
students applying for a Master's degree programme at Umeå University
students who have Umeå University as priority 1 at universityadmissions.se.
To be eligible for selections you must also have completed your study application at universityadmissions.se by February 3, 2014.
The selections for the scholarships are based entirely on the applicant's academic merit. Selected candidates receive a full or partial reduction of the tuition fee.
The Swedish Institute
The Swedish Institute administers many scholarship each year for students and researchers, from various non-EU/EEA countries, coming to Sweden to pursue their objectives at a Swedish university.
One scholarship programme targets students in countries with which Sweden has long-term development cooperation. These countries are Bangladesh, Bolivia, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Ethiopia, Kenya, Mali, Mozambique, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zambia.
Applicants from these countries will not be considered for Umeå University Scholarship and are referred instead to the Swedish Institute
