Students in their last year of studies who are lacking documentation of their completed/soon to be completed degree, can be accepted by universities.

Two categories of students without required documentation

If you're a student in your final year of a bachelor's programme, you most likely meet one of the following descriptions:

  • You're in your last year of bachelor's studies but have not yet completed your degree.
  • You've completed your studies but have not yet received your diploma (an official diploma is required documentation).

Please read below to find out what you need to do to document your studies.

For students who have not yet completed their final year of studies

As a master's applicant, you are required to document all semesters of your studies. Universities may consider your application if you:

  • are in your last year of studies

  • provide an official transcript for all completed semesters to date

  • submit documentation from your university certifying that you are an active student in your last year

  • provide documentation that you meet the English requirement

Please note that you must complete all steps in the application process and provide the rest of your documentation by the deadline. You can find out what is required in steps 1 through 5. 

Official documentation from your current university is required

You must submit an official document stating that you are a currently enrolled student and participating in your last year of studies with your application. The document must be issued through and signed by a representative of the Academic Registrar's Office, the Examinations Office or equivalent. Signatures from other staff members, such as teachers/professors, will not be accepted.

You can use our Statement of enrollment status form

University Admissions in Sweden has created a form which you can use if you'd like in order to help your university provide documentation of your last year of studies. Please note that the form is not required: your university can write their own letter or use their own form.

If you decide to use the form, simply follow the instructions provided:

Statement of enrollment status for students in their final year

Always check the special instructions for your country of study

It's possible that there are specific documentation requirements for the country where you'll be completing your Bachelor's studies. If this is the case, you'll find information at your country page.

If you've been conditionally admitted

If you’ve been conditionally admitted with the help of the above certification, you may be required to present your complete transcript and/or official diploma once you register at your university at the start of the semester in Sweden. Be sure to check with the university you'll be attending to find out what is required of you.

We suggest that you upload your documents here at Universityadmissions.se as soon as you get them so that they're registered in the admissions system when you arrive in Sweden.
