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
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)
