In the International Student Guide you can find Cost
of Living under heading "Umeå, Sweden and the Swedes". You can also
read about Money and Budget under heading "At Home".
If you are a citizen of a country that is NOT in
the European Union or the European Economic Area, the Swedish
Migration Agency requires you prove that you have funds to cover
your living expenses (SEK 7 974 per month) when you
apply for a student visa.
Scholarships for covering costs of living or travels are
not offered by Umeå Institute of Design or Umeå University.
However, there are other organisations in Sweden and other
countries that do so. Please check the link below, and ask a study
advisor or international coordinator at your home university for
The Swedish Institute
