Tips for a smoother process

When you have been admitted and if you’re from outside the EU, please make sure to pay your tuition fee to the university as soon as possible. Also apply for residence permit through the Migration Agency with all documents ready. Another advise is to start searching for accommodation while you wait for the residence permit.
