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
For entry to a master's study programme, the minimum requirement is a 4-year Bachelor's degree followed by a 2-year Master's degree.
- Students holding only a Bachelor’s degree will not satisfy the entry requirements for a Master's programme.
- Complete officially issued academic transcripts and diplomas/temporary certificates of graduation for both the Bachelor’s and Master’s degree must be submitted. Please upload a scan of the original documents to your application.
The Laurea issued by the Somali National University is not generally accepted for entry to a Master’s programme in Sweden since there is no possiblity of verifying the authenticity of the qualification. It will be up to the universities to which you apply to decide whether the qualification can be accepted.
Special document instructions
The authenticity of your qualifications will be verified with the issuing university.
- The qualification verification process takes time. It is therefore important that you apply early and ensure that your study documents are received by University Admissions in Sweden as early as possible. The later your documents are received, the less chance you have of being considered.
- Please be advised that University Admissions in Sweden does not pay for degree verifications.
