Before you apply you must create a user account.  This user account serves as a link between your application and your personal data.

Creating your account and your username

International applicants use their email address when creating their account and this becomes their username.

  • Choose an email address that you check frequently as you will receive important correspondence at this address.
  • Choose a permanent email address so that you continue to hear from us. Remember that school email addresses will be deleted after you graduate.

Applicants with a Swedish personal identity number (personnummer) must create an account using this number as their username. For more information, please see Applicants with a Swedish personal identity number.

Enter the correct personal data

Date of birth

Enter the correct year, month and day of birth when creating your account. If you enter the wrong date, your Notification of Selection Results will contain an incorrect birthdate, which will create problems when you apply for a residence permit.


Write your full, given name - do not use nicknames.Your name should be the same name as indicated on your passport and in your academic documents. If you have changed your name so that there is a discrepancy, be sure to provide us with documentation of the name change.

Once you have saved your personal details, you cannot change your name or date of birth.

One account only

You may only create one user account. University Admissions in Sweden reserves the right to delete additional accounts if more than one is used for any admissions round. 

Once you create a user account, it remains in the system. If you choose to reapply at a future date, you must log in using your original username and password. Any previous documents you submitted will still be available in your account.

Your account is for your use only.

Have you forgotten your password?

If you cannot remember your password, click on 'I have an account but can't log in' at the 'Log in' and follow the instructions. If you cannot remember your username (email address), please contact University Admissions by going to our Support Centre.

Has it been a long time since you logged in to your account?

If the last time you logged in to your account was before December 2014, your login details have most likely been deleted. You can still access any documents you've sent in previously and submit an application by doing the following:

  • Create a new user account with a different email address than the one you used before. 
  • Contact University Admissions and let us know that you created a new account but that you had one previously. We can then add any documents from your old account to your new one.
