    Orebro University is one of the universities that provides a fine curriculum related to Chemistry in Environmental studies. One of my friends suggested me to join the University as he himself is studying here. Also one of the reasons for studying here was no fee policy.

    Fees :

    I possess citizenship in Switzerland. Thus I am not required to pay for application or tuition fees. But I came to know from one of my foreign friends that he paid around SEK 55450 towards the first installment of the course.
