Most documents can be uploaded to University Admissions. We encourage you to use this service whenever possible as your documents will arrive quickly, easily and safely.

Preparing your documents

Before uploading your documents, they must be prepared as follows:

  • You must scan your original documents, not copies.If the document is in colour, scan it in colour.

  • All files must be in PDF-format to be accepted for uploading.

  • Be sure to scan all document pages that contain text/writing, even those with just instructions, keys or other information that is not necessarily your grade information. 

  • All documents that are in the same category (for example transcripts and diploma copies) should be scanned into ONE file - do not make a separate file for each page. There are programmes on the internet that can help you with this.

  • Check your scan to see that everything on the original document can be read on the scan, including text, stamps, numbers, etc. If your scan cannot be read, it cannot be accepted.

  • If you can't get a good scan, we suggest you submit your documents via regular mail. Instructions can be found at Regular post (delivery service) instructions.

  • We do not recommend that applicants take photos of their documents. The quality is not at a level where we can guarantee we can accept the document in that format.

Uploading your prepared files

Once you've prepared your documents and scanned them into PDF files, it's time to use the uploading function on Universityadmissions.se:

  • Log in to your account and go to the Documents tab.You must have an active application in order to be able to upload your documents.

  • Follow the instructions given and upload your documents.

  • Tip: Give your files a name that will remind you later what it contains.

  • Tip: Remember that once you've uploaded your documents, you can't see them or delete them. You'll be provided with the name you've given the file, and the file name for reference.

Special instructions for Apple users (Mac/iPhone/iPad)

There can be problems with your documents if you are using Apple products. Please follow these instructions so the admissions system can recognise your documents:

  • Do not use the embedded pdf-viewer in Safari or Mac OS. Create the document directly in Adobe Acrobat or an equivalent pdf programme.

  • When creating the document as a pdf, choose 'Print' instead of 'Save as'. Selecting 'Print' and then as a pdf document will save it so it can be recognised in the admissions system.
