Education in Sweden is gratis. So no, there are no enrollment fees or
other costs of any kind.

That's very interesting. A normal course here is 15 ECTS, with the big
courses at 30 ECTS. This is a comparatively small course of 7.5 ECTS
credits, which in Sweden means about 5 weeks of full-time studies (this
is part time, so it's 10 weeks).
