Welcome to the information page for applicants who have completed studies in Kosovo, with information about meeting the English requirement, what previous studies meet the basic entry requirements, and any special documentation instructions. 

Start with Step 1 - Finding out what I need to submit

There are general instructions for all applicants; it is important that you start with Step 1 and then work your way through the remaining steps in order to submit the right documents in the right way.

Meeting the English requirement - bachelor's and master's level studies

Upper secondary studies completed in this country do not meet the English requirement for studies in Sweden. Even if you studied English at your upper secondary school, it is not enough to give you eligibility in regard to English.

You can demonstrate that you meet the English language requirement through certain university studies, or an internationally approved English test. Find out more at the following link:

For master's level studies:

A Bachelor of at least 3 years meets the general criteria.

To document your eligibility, please submit your transcript of record and Diploma. If your diploma supplement lists all of your courses, it can replace the transcript.

  • All pages with text/writing/stamps must be submitted, even back pages.
  • Please note that entries in academic record books (Index) cannot be accepted as transcript.

Always submit your documents in the original language

Academic documents issued in English by the university can be accepted (no translation is required) if the title of the degree is clearly stated on the documents. Please note that in some instances, we may also require documents issued in their original language.
