1. University of Skövde Master's Scholarships
The University of Skövde administrates some scholarships funded by the Swedish Council for Higher Education (UHR) to students required to pay tuition fees attending a Master's programme at our University. Note that the University of Skövde has recently updated the name of this scholarship programme. It will no longer be referred to as UHR Scholarship.
The scholarships are partial tuition fee waivers (50% of the tuition fee). More information about the University of Skövde Master's Scholarships and link to the application.

2. Erasmus+ Master Degree Loans
Erasmus+ Master Degree Loans are EU-guaranteed loans with favourable pay-back terms. They are designed to help prospective students from certain Erasmus+ programme countries finance their master's studies in another Erasmus+ programme country. The scheme is designed to provide postgraduate students with financial support for their master's studies abroad.

3. Scholarships for exchange students from the EU, EEA and Switzerland
If you are an exchange student, please contact your home university for information about which scholarships they provide.
The University of Skövde is part of the Erasmus+ Programme, which means that if the University of Skövde has a bilateral Erasmus+ agreement with your home institution, then you might be able to study here with an Erasmus+ grant.
We encourage you to pursue this option, since the Erasmus+ scholarships are often very generous.

The Study in Sweden website offer information on scholarships, offered by various organisations and foundations around the world.
3. Scholarships for Bachelor's students
