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.
Knowing what documents to submit
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 university may have, such as essays, motivation letters, etc.
- The country where you studied
Important to note: Do not submit recommendation letters, essays, CVs, motivation letters etc. unless the course/programme specifically states that these documents are required. Documents that haven't been requested will not be considered and will delay the processing of your application.
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.
- In order to compete for places, you must have a merit rating. This rating is based mainly on your upper secondary grades.
Not all upper secondary documents are listed
We have listed the most common, current upper secondary certificates on the country pages, but we also accept other types of studies and certificates. Among these are vocational studies, older leaving certificates, etc. In general, if the studies you completed in a previous country grant you general eligibility for university studies there, they most likely will meet the general eligibility requirements for university studies in Sweden.
First, check the course/programme page at the university's website
You can find a link at your application page where the courses you've applied to are listed. At the university website you'll find out what - if any - additional documentation you may need for the course or programme.
