Admissions support

Second admission round, spring semester

The following is a short guide and checklist for applications to the second round, autumn semester. This should give you an idea of what to expect and what steps you should be taking throughout the application process.

Throughout the process:

Check for instructions regarding your documentation regularly, from submission of your application until you receive your Notification of Selection Results. You can do this under the 'Messages' tab in your account.

15 September – 15 October

Apply at and document your fee exempt status

For most students, documenting your fee exempt status means submitting proof of your citizenship in an EU/EEA country. For more information, please see EU/EEA citizens exempt from fees

Please note: Some universities will publish their courses and programmes in both the International and EU/EEA admissions rounds. You may see double listing of some courses when you do a search - remember that they have different deadlines and other dates.

15 September – 1 December

Send in supporting documents and pay application fee (if you haven't already done so)

All applicants need to send in supporting academic documents. If you need to pay an application fee, we recommend that you pay the fee online. You can also pay by bank transfer. See our special information page.

If you do not need to pay a fee, you must document this. See our information page on how to do so.

See Key dates for more specific information on the document and fee deadline.

Beginning of December

Check first selection results and reply to your offer

You will receive your Notification of Selection Results sometime in the beginning of December. This will tell you if you've been offered a place or place on reserve for the courses and programmes you've applied to. You must reply to your offer if you wish to keep your place - this includes reserves.

As soon as possible after you accept your place

Plan your accommodation

Once you get a better idea of where you're going to study, you should read up on accommodation possibilities at relevant universities. This should be done as soon as you can, as housing can be limited in some Swedish cities. Good places to start are and the website of the university where you've applied.

Later in December

Second selection

You'll receive your second Notification of Selection Results, which will tell you which programmes or courses you have been offered a place in. If you're still on reserve for some courses and programmes, it's possible that you may still be offered a place. You should contact the university in question for more information

The semester starts in January. Contact your university for exact dates for registration and introduction seminars.
