Dates and deadlines

A successful admissions process means meeting deadlines. Find out all the important dates for your application.

Your most frequently asked questions

Applicants aren't notified that everything is OK with their documents; you'll be notified only if there is something more that is required.

University Admissions will notify you by sending a message to your account here at We may ask for:

  • documents related to previous studies
  • ID documents
  • documentation of English skills

If you're wondering when your documents arrived, you can check the 'Documents' section when you log in to your account. If you uploaded your documents, you'll see a list of the files that you submitted to University Admissions. Unfortunately, you are unable to open and view these files. 

There is also a section for documents submitted by the postal/delivery service. It can take a few weeks to scan in and register the documents you submit this way. When the process is complete, you'll see a listing with a date. The date will be the date your documents arrived.

The application review process takes time

Due to the number of applications we receive, the application review process can take some time. Please note that an evaluation of your application does not automatically occur as soon as your documents are received. The application review process takes place up until the selection process, which occurs right before admissions results are posted. We appreciate your patience while the review process is completed.

In order to complete your admissions application, there are several things we need from you:

  • Documentation of your previous studies
  • Proof of English skills
  • Payment of the application fee (if required)
  • Documentation of your citizenship status in an EU/EEA country (if you're a citizen)

Documenting your EU/EEA citizenship

Yes, you can. But be aware that University Admissions won't register your late documents until admissions results have been published. If you send in your documents before the results are published, they’ll be scanned and placed in a holding area. Please see Key dates for information on when results are published. 

If your documentation was required to show you meet the entry requirements for the course, you'll see on your admissions notification that the course has been deleted because you weren’t qualified. If you are still interested in the course/programme you applied for and want your documents and status to be reviewed, follow these instructions:

  • First, you must check to see that the course is still open for application. Go to the start page and search for the course. If there’s a ‘Select’ button, it’s still open for application.

  • After admission results have been published, submit an email or letter to University Admissions explaining that you'd like to reapply. In the letter, include the application code(s) for the courses you wish to reapply for and indicate in what order you wish to rank your courses. Use the contact form to send an email, or upload your letter right here on this website.

  • You can submit your documents at any time.

Please note that universities review late applications at their discretion. There’s no guarantee that your documents and application will be reviewed, even if you're qualified.

University Admissions receives a large amount of documentation and it can take some time to scan and enter documents into our admissions system. It can take up to 2–3 weeks after sending your documents for them to be registered.

You'll see when they've been registered in the 'Documents' section of your account under 'Documents received by regular post'.

In most cases, an application will be considered late if all the correct documents haven't arrived by the deadline. This means your application won't be considered during the regular selection.

We suggest you get your documents to us as soon as you receive them. You may be considered for available places after the regular admission selection.

For most universities, you can. You need to submit an official document from your current university stating that you are likely to be awarded your bachelor’s degree by the start of the Swedish programme.

Please see final year of bachelor's studies for specific information on how to do this.
