Autumn semester dates

The following are the key dates for application to the autumn semester. There are separate dates for master's and bachelor's, and for the two admissions rounds.

First admissions round

The First admissions round is specifically for international students. The deadlines and admissions decisions for this round take place much earlier. This in turn means that international applicants have time to

  • pay their tuition fees
  • apply for and receive their residence permit, if required
  • find housing and plan for their move to Sweden

Second admissions round

The Second admissions round is actually the regular admissions round for students living in Sweden. All courses and programmes taught in Swedish are available in this round, but many courses and programmes taught in English are no longer available for application.

International students are welcome to apply to this round, but non-EU/EEA students who require a residence permit won't have time to apply for and receive one.
