University Admissions on Twitter has been deactivated

There are a limited number of applicants who follow our Twitter account and questions often contained personal data, or needed to be directed elsewhere. For these reasons, we decided to deactivate the account.

Twitter as an information channel

Over the past few years, University Admissions's Twitter channel has had a very limited number of followers. We simply weren't reaching very many people with our information.

After a review, we determined that there were better channels, used by the majority of our applicants, that were better suited for providing important information.

Twitter as a place to ask questions

In our review, we also noted that Twitter was not the best place for applicants to ask questions. The majority of the questions were better answered by contacting:

  • Studyinsweden.se
  • A university
  • University Admissions in Sweden support centre
  • The Swedish Migration Agency

At times, critical questions that needed to be directed to University Admissions - by email, chat or telephone - were delayed by posting first on Twitter. 

Another problem was that some applicants provided personal data on Twitter, which is never a good idea. Once something is posted on Twitter, according to Swedish law we can't delete it. 

Where should I get my information and ask questions?

For general questions about studying in Sweden, you should start with the website Studyinsweden.se.

For questions about scholarships, you should contact the Swedish Institute or the university you're interested in applying to.

For questions about the application process, or your application in particular, you should go to University Admissions Support Centre on this website. You can search for your question in our database of frequently asked questions, or contact University Admissions directly.
