To be able to study in Sweden, you need a residence permit. Application for a residence permit for studies can be sent after the tuition fee has been paid, and you have received a confirmation email from SLU.
Application for a residence permit is made through the Migration Agency website. The Migration Agency is responsible for the entire residence permit process. SLU cannot in any way affect your application. Questions regarding your residence permit should be asked to the Migration Agency.
The waiting time for a decision from the Migration Agency is usually between 2-5 months, sometimes longer. Therefore SLU urge students to pay their tuition fee and apply for a residence permit as soon as possible after you have received the payment instructions from SLU (shortly after you receive the notification of selection results).
The only document you need to prove that you have been admitted to SLU and that you are insured, is the notification of selection results emailed to you after the selection.
You must be registered to 30 credits each semester. If you study less than 30 credits during a semester your residence permit may be revoked, or an application for an extension denied. If you cannot study for any reason, such as illness or because you cannot pay your tuition fee, you are expected to leave Sweden, as a residence permit for studies only allows residence for studies.
