Students having trouble receiving residence permits

News: Jul 12, 2019

The University of Gothenburg is aware of the trouble some students are facing, especially in Pakistan and Bangladesh, when it comes to getting scheduled appointments for receiving residence permits. We understand that you are reaching out to us as a University, but unfortunately, we can't help individuals getting earlier appointments. We do understand how disappointing this might be. It is however out of our jurisdiction.

The increase of admitted students over the last two years has put a lot of strain on the Swedish Foreign Missions that conducts interviews. Swedish universities are having constant discussion and dialog regarding the problems that the students are facing. But unfortunately, we haven't solved all problems for this autumn intake.

The last day to register for classes in Gothenburg

We get questions regarding the last day to register and show up for classes. This depends on which programme you are admitted to. Therefore, you need to be in contact with the hosting department. If you don't know who to contact regarding this matter, you can always contact our Servicecenter.

Questions regarding recovering your tuition fee

If it's impossible for you to get your residence permit in time, you should contact Section of Admissions in order to recover your tuition fee installment.
