Find out what you need to submit

After submitting your electronic application, the next step is to submit documentation to demonstrate your eligibility for the courses and programmes you've applied for.

Exactly what you need to submit, and how you need to submit various documents, depends on a number of factors including:

  • the specific entry requirements a university may have for a course or programme
  • additional document requirements a course/programme may have, such as essays, motivation letters, etc.
  • the country where you studied

What are the basics?

All applicants need to document their previous studies. This means you need to provide documentation of your completed upper secondary studies including transcripts with courses and grades. If you've completed university studies, you should also document your degree and provide transcripts.

You also need to show you meet the English requirement. Some applicants meet the requirement based on previous studies, while others demonstrate their English ability by submitting English test results.

Can I just submit my university documents?

Even if you've completed university studies, you must submit your upper secondary documents if you're applying to bachelor's level courses and programmes.

  • Your upper secondary studies are used to determine if you meet the general and specific entry requirements, not your university studies.
  • To compete for places, you must have a merit rating. This rating is based mainly on your upper secondary grades.

The university may have other requirements

Universities provide an informational webpage for each course and programme they offer. Visit the university’s website to find out if there’s other documentation you need to submit. This could be a CV, motivation letter, references, etc.

You can find a link to the university’s course/programme page at the application section of your account here at Universityadmissions.se.

If the university hasn’t asked for any additional documentation, be sure not to submit them anyway. Documents that haven't been requested won’t be considered and will delay the processing of your application.

All the specifics at your country of study

We've provided information pages with instructions based on where applicants have studied. After finding out if the university has any special requirements, the next step is to go to your country of study page. There, you can:

  • find out what previous studies meet the general entry requirements
  • how you can meet the English requirement
  • any special instructions for your country

Be sure your documents were officially issued

For your documents to be accepted, it's important that they've been officially issued by your school before being scanned into a PDF file for uploading, or are copied and submitted by regular post.

Print-outs from a webpage, hand-written copies or letters/certifications from an unofficial source cannot be accepted.
