In this section, you can find an overview of the application process with specific information about every step along the way.

One application

Sweden is unique in that we have a coordinated admissions system. This means that applicants can apply for courses and programmes at all universities on the same application – and right here at Universityadmissions.se!

Convenient electronic application and process

All of our international applicants apply electronically for courses and programmes. Here on Universityadmissions.se, you can:

  • create a user account

  • search for courses and programmes

  • fill out and send in your application

  • pay your application fee, if required

  • upload your required documents

  • follow your application

  • receive and print out your Notification of Selection Results

  • reply to any offers of admission (Second round only)

Follow the steps in this section to complete your application quickly and correctly.

One set of supporting documents

Students must submit documentation in support of their application. These documents can include upper secondary school transcripts, university transcripts and English test results. The documents you upload or send in to University Admissions in Sweden are scanned into our electronic admissions system. In that way, no matter where an admissions officer is in Sweden, he or she can bring up your record and look at all of your documents and your application information.

Preliminary assessment

Your application will be registered and checked in several steps and by different institutions. Because of the number of applications that we receive, this process can take some time.

Please note that in some cases, the final assessment will not be made until the very last week before selection.

Notification of selection results

Once the selection results have been published, you will receive an email reminder to log in to 'My pages' and check your results.

Your notification will be accessible online as well as in a printable PDF-file. If you are offered a place, read the instructions about applying for a student residence permit and payment of tuition fees (if required), as well as any information about enrollment/registration days or introductory meetings held by the university.

Reply online - Second round

If you applied for the Second round for the autumn or spring semester (application deadlines 15 April and 15 October), you will be required to reply online to your first Notification of Selection Results. If you fail to reply, or reply after the deadline, you will lose your place. Please be sure to reply on time!

If you applied to the First round for the autumn or spring semester (application deadlines 15 January and 15 August), you do not need to reply to your offer.
