Meeting the general entry requirements

The following meet the general requirement:

  • Gymnasieexamensbetyg Ålands lyceum, previously Avgångsbetyg från Ålands lyceum. Please note that you may also need to submit studieutdrag/studiekort to demonstrate specific eligibilites.
  • Gymnasieexamenbetyg with yrkesinriktning/Grundexamensbetyg Ålands yrkesgymnasium, previously Avgångsbetyg från Ålands yrkesskola etc.

Please note: If you've studied Mathematics basic syllabus (kort lärokurs) according to the 2016 or 2021 curriculum, you must submit a certificate or a study register excerpt (studiekort) which shows that you have studied Mathemical Analysis MAB7 (curriculum 2016) or MAB8 (curriculum 2021) in order to demonstrate eligibility in Mathematics 3b.

Meeting the English requirement

You can meet the English requirement with your upper secondary studies if you have 6 completed courses/study weeks in English, or if you graduated according to the 2021 curriculum, 6 modules/12 sp in English as an A language.

Please note that other rules may apply for older Gymnasieutbildning and Yrkesgymnasium before 1998.

You can also demonstrate that you meet the English language requirement through certain university studies, or an internationally approved English test.

General document requirements

To complete your admissions application, you must provide the following documentation:

1. Record of completed upper secondary (high school) education

For your eligibility for courses and programmes at the bachelor's level to be determined - and for you to compete with other applicants for available places in courses and programmes - you must submit your upper secondary qualifications. 

This completed education must qualify you for higher education studies in the country you received it. 

2. Identification document

To speed up the processing of your application, we require a copy of the page in your passport with your personal data and photograph, or a similar identification document.

What about university records?

Your university qualifications cannot be considered instead of your upper secondary (high school) qualifications. However, the results from your previous university studies may help you meet the specific entry requirements for a course or programme. We therefore recommend that you submit documentation of your university studies. 

To find out how to submit them, see the information for your country of study for master's applications.

Translation requirements

Upper secondary school (high school)

You must always submit your documents in the official language of the country where you studied. Documents issued in English by your school are also accepted.

University level studies

You must always submit your certificate/diploma and transcripts in the official language of the country where you studied.

Academic qualifications issued in English by the university are also accepted. In this case, you don't need to provide documents in the official language.

Your name and birthdate must match on all documents

For your documents to be accepted:

  • the name and birthdate provided must be the same on all your documents (ID, transcripts, degree certificate, etc.)
  • the name on your documents must match the name you reported in your account at Universityadmissions.se

If the names are different, you must provide us with documentation (for example, a marriage certificate if you've been married) as to why they don't match.

If the birthdate on any of your documents is different from your passport, the difference must be explained with official documentation.

This documentation must be either issued in English or Swedish or, if issued in another language, officially translated to Swedish or English.

The easiest way to get your documentation to us is by uploading it here at Universityadmissions.se. 

Incomplete documentation

It's your responsibility to ensure that you have read and understood the application requirements and have gathered and submitted all the necessary components of the admissions application by the deadline.


University Admissions in Sweden checks the authenticity of your documents with the issuing institution. University Admissions in Sweden reserves the right to revoke admission if supporting documents are discovered to be fraudulent.

Submission of false documents is a violation of Swedish law and is considered grounds for legal action.
