January or February - which deadline?

Wondering why there are two deadlines? Find out what you need to do by the January date and the February date.

The admissions process to university studies requires a few steps in order to get your application in on time and complete. Two of the most important steps are letting us know what you want to apply for, and documenting your previous studies.

Submitting course/programme selections -  January deadline

After creating a user account - where you provide us with your basic information - the next step is letting us know what you wish to apply for. You can do this by:

  • using the search function and search filter to browse the course catalogue
  • selecting your courses and programmes,
  • prioritising your selections, and
  • submitting your selections.

The deadline is usually 15 January but if that date is on a Saturday or Sunday, the deadline will be moved to Monday. 

For 2022, the deadline is 17 January.

Providing study documents - February deadline

In order to check if you meet the entry requirements and determine your merit rating, we need to see documentation of your previous studies. There is detailed information here at Universityadmissions.se that lets you know what you need to submit and how. 

The university you're applying to may also require certain documents, like a letter of motivation or recommendation. Be sure to check the course/programme description page at the university website to find out what's required.

The deadline is usually 1 February but if that date is on a Saturday or Sunday, the deadline will be moved to Monday. 

For 2022, the deadline is 1 February.
