Full scholarships available for 2013

Umeå Institute of Design (UID) has always based its yearly admission on talent and talent only. Sweden's introduction of tuition fees for non-EU students has never changed that.

UID has, for the third year in a row, secured funding that will enable it to offer full or substantial reduction of the tuition fees through scholarships to the accepted applicants coming from countries outside the EU.
In the past two years UID has been able to offer all its accepted non-EU applicants full scholarships, enabling them to study on equal financial terms as the Scandinavian and European colleagues.

In 2011, 8 students received full scholarship to cover their tuition fees, in 2012 the number was 11 students. This financial aid is only applicable to non-EU citizens and students can only apply for a scholarship after they are admitted to one of our academic programmes or courses.

The deadline for applying to study at UID is February 15th 2013. The new term starts in September. An online application site will be open from the 1st of November, but we advise future applicants to start preparing already now. Below is a list of things to keep in mind and prepare for your application:
• Book a time of a language test (if required)
• Documentation of previous educations and exams
• Read about the different programmes and courses pre-requisites and portfolio requirements


General information about the requirements on previous educations and exams etc. including documentation of language skills, as well as links to specific information about the different programmes expectations on the documentation of your creative work (portfolios etc.) can be found under Admission

Admitted students from certain countries can also apply for the Swedish Institute Scholarships that cover living expenses as well as tuition fees.
