The great thing about Sweden is that you can apply to all courses and programmes at all universities – right here at Universityadmissions.se.
Wondering how the process actually works? Check out the rest of this guide...
There are different ways you can search for courses – choose the way that works best for you. Click the ‘Add’ button for the ones you wish to apply for. Bachelor’s applicants can apply for up 10 courses and programmes, and master’s students can apply for a maximum of 4 programmes.
I typed ‘business’ in the search box, chose autumn semester when I wished to begin my studies, and then limited my search to only master’s level programmes. Voilà! I got a great list of possibilities.
When I log in to my user account at Universityadmissions.se, I can submit and change my application, read important messages, and get my admissions notification. Everything I need, right at my fingertips.
Start the application process and create your user account by clicking on the 'Log in' tab.
Once you’ve selected your courses, it’s important that you place them in order, with the one you most want to be accepted to first, and so on. You can change the order up to the application deadline.
When you’re finished, click the submit button. Check to see that everything is in order and that you’ve answered the questions on the confirmation screen about your international qualifications.
In general, citizens of countries not in the European Economic Area (EEA) are required to pay the 900 SEK application fee – you can do that quickly and easily right here at Universityadmissions.se with your credit card.
If you're from an EEA country, you need to send in a copy of your passport to verify your citizenship.
After submitting your electronic admission application and paying the application fee (or submitting proof of your European citizenship), the next step is to send copies of your grade transcripts and proof of English skills. Information about the whole process can be found under “All you need to know.”
I followed the instructions on Universityadmissions.se and submitted my documents correctly. It was good that I started the process early so everything arrived by the deadline.
The day you've been waiting for - finding out if you've been offered a place! Once the application period is completed and all the applications have been reviewed, you’ll receive your admission notification—the Notification of Selection Results—on Universityadmissions.se. Be sure to reply to your offer in order to keep any places you’ve been offered or your place on a waiting list (reserve).
There are just a few things left to do before your arrival in Sweden.
All students should contact their university regarding housing, books, registration and the first day of classes.
Students from countries outside Europe must arrange with their university to pay their tuition fee, and apply for a residence permit with the Swedish Migration Agency.
Best of luck to you with your studies in Sweden!
