Waiting list and late applications

If you were placed on a waiting list, or submitted a late application, the university may review your application after admissions selection and award you a place.

How will I know that I've been offered a place?

If you've been offered a place from the waiting list - or if your late application has been reviewed and you've been offered a place - this is what will happen:

  • You'll receive an email from University Admissions that you've been offered a place. You can view your Notification of Selection Results in your account here at Universityadmissions.se.
  • In most cases, the university will be in contact with you directly to let you know that there's a place available. 
  • If you don't wish to keep the place, please be sure to decline it so that it can be made available to someone else.
  • If you accept your place, all further contact will be made with the university.

What are my chances of being offered a place?

You may be wondering if the waiting list number you have will get you a place, or what the chances are of having your late application reviewed. Unfortunately, these are questions that are impossible to answer. All courses and programmes:

  • have a certain popularity that can change from year to year
  • applicants who need to decide if they're coming to Sweden to study
  • a different applicant pool with higher or lower merit ratings than previous years

We simply don't know if you'll be offered a place. We understand how eager you are for an answer and thank you for your patience.
