International students who are admitted to either a master's programme or are exchange students may need to open a Swedish bank account during their time in Sweden.
If you are studying in Sweden for more than a year you should be registered in the Swedish population register and receive a personal identity number. This makes it easier for you to open a bank account.
Exchange students who are in Sweden for a limited period of time are not entitled to a personal identity number. This may cause problems when trying to open a bank account.
The bank SEB will accept international students with or without a permanent residence permit as clients. Bring your Notification of Selection result or a certificate of registration.
