Pakistan, bachelor's admission
Find out what you need to submit, what previous studies meet the general entry requirements, how to meet the English requirement and any special instructions for your country of study.
Meeting the general entry requirements
An Intermediate Secondary School Certificate (ISSC), or Higher Secondary School Certificate (HSSC) meets the general criteria.
Documents required: Officially issued Intermediate Secondary School Certificate (ISSC), or Higher Secondary School Certificate (HSSC) + Statement of marks, or other official transcript. Each document must be verified and attested by Inter Board Committee of Chairmen (IBCC). Read more about the documentation requirements below.
Did you graduate after 2009?
If you graduated after 2009, a passing grade in Mathematics is required to meet the general entry requirements for bachelor’s level studies. If you don’t have a passing grade in Mathematics in your ISSC or HSSC, you must also submit your Secondary School Certificate (SSC). Observe that the same requirements for verification and attestation apply to your Secondary School Certificate as for your ISSC/HSSC.
Meeting the English requirement
Upper secondary studies completed in this country do not meet the English requirement for studies in Sweden. Even if you studied English at your upper secondary school, it is not enough to give you eligibility in regard to English.
Students with a Bachelor's degree (equivalent to a Swedish Kandidatexamen) in Engineering, Computer Science, Computer Applications, Medicine, Pharmacy, Mathematics or Natural Sciences, unless it is documented that the language of instruction for the programme was a language other than English, meet the English requirement. Please note that there are two exceptions:
- A Bachelor’s degree in Information Technology will not meet the English requirement.
- A Bachelor’s degree from Federal Urdu University of Arts, Science & Technology (FUUAST), will not meet the English requirement unless it is clearly stated in the official degree documentation that the language of instruction was English. Any other English language certificates or letters will not be accepted.
You can also demonstrate that you meet the English language requirement through an internationally approved English test.

Specific document instructions
Please note the following in regard to your documentation from upper secondary school:
1. For your documentation to be accepted, all Intermediate, and Higher Secondary School Certificates + Statement of Marks/official transcript must be verified and attested by the Inter Board Committee of Chairmen (IBCC) in Pakistan.
2. Some qualifications can be verified by University Admissions in Sweden online. If we can´t verify your qualifications online, you will be requested to contact IBCC and ask them to provide you with your verified and attested qualifications in a, by them, sealed envelope. The sealed envelope should then be sent by post to University Admissions in Sweden. You will be notified on your account here if you must contact the IBCC yourself. Please note that only some boards of intermediate and secondary education provide functioning online verification services. We can recommend you try to verify your documents via the secondary education board, before uploading them here at Universityadmissions.se. If your board does not provide this service, please send in your documents by regular post. Otherwise, we'll request that you do so which will delay the processing of your application.
3. To make it easier for us to connect your documentation with your application, we ask that you together with the sealed envelope from IBCC submit the following information:
- your name
- your father's name
- your personal identity number or application number (you can find this information under 'Application' when you log in to your account here)
4. The verified documents, along with your personal information, must be sent in an envelope sealed by IBCC directly to:
5. We recommend that applicants submit their application and upload supporting documents as early as possible in the admissions round, as the verification process can take a long time.
6. Please be advised that University Admissions in Sweden does not pay for degree verifications.
