Find detailed, step-by-step instructions on how to complete and submit an application for master's studies in Sweden.

Apply to bachelor's

If you're interested in bachelor's studies, find step-by-step instructions on how to apply to University Admissions.

Entry requirements

To be eligible for courses and programmes, you must meet the general and specific entry requirements.

Key dates and deadlines

A successful admissions process means meeting deadlines. Find out all the important dates for your application.

Selection and admissions results

If you meet the entry requirements - and meet all deadlines - you'll compete for places in the courses you've applied for.

Fees, scholarships, residence permits

For international students, fees, scholarships and the residence permit are important parts of the application process.

Your most frequently asked questions

If you see the status ‘Reserve´ next to a course or programme, it means that you have been placed on a waiting list.

Next steps for First round applicants

If you've applied for the First round, you do not need to reply to your admissions notification. If you're offered a place in a course or programme from the waiting list, the university most likely will contact you directly. You'll also receive an email and new notification of selection results.

Next steps for Second round applicants

If you have applied for the Second round, you must reply to your admissions notification in order to keep your reserve place (as well as any admitted places). You will receive a second notification with the results of the second selection round. You'll find out then if you've been offered a place in the course/programme from the waiting list.

The university may offer you a place even later. If this happens, you will receive an email from University Admissions and a new Notification of Selection results. The university may even contact you directly about the place available.

What are my chances of being offered a place from the waiting list?

Unfortunately, we do not have any information regarding your chances of being offered a place and are unable to answer questions you may have.

University Admissions doesn’t register documents received after the deadline until admissions results have been published. During that time, we review the applications that were on-time.

After admissions results are published, if a course was deleted because you didn’t meet the entry requirements – but you believe you do meet them based on the late documents you submitted – you must reapply for the course. You can do this by completing these steps:

  • send us an email at University Admissions after admissions results are published, explaining that you’d like to reapply
  • in the letter, include the application code(s) for the courses you with to reappy for and indicate in what order you wish to rank them
  • you can submit your documents at any time.

Is it before the application deadline?

You can change the ranking order of your selections up to the application deadline by:

  • logging in to your account
  • going to 'Application'
  • clicking on 'Change your application'
  • making your changes, saving and submitting.

If it's after the application deadline

After the application deadline, you cannot make changes to the ranking of the courses/programmes to which you've applied.

The only way to change your application is to delete course selections and/or add new programmes as a late application (if the courses are still open for late application). When you delete a course/programme, the others will automatically move up in priority. Any courses or programmes applied to after the deadline will be considered at the discretion of the university and only if there are places available after the selection round.

Before making any changes to your application, make sure that the course/programme you wish to delete and add back has the status 'Open for late application' with a 'Select' button in the course search.

Applicants aren't notified that everything is OK with their documents; you'll be notified only if there is something more that is required.

University Admissions will notify you by sending a message to your account here at Universityadmissions.se. This is for:

  • documentation of previous studies
  • ID documents
  • English documentation

Your university may require other specific documents for the programme you've applied for, such as statement of purpose, essays, references, etc. It's important that you check the programme/course page on the university's website to find out exactly what you need. 

If you're wondering when your documents arrived, you can check the 'Documents' section when you log in to your account. If you uploaded your documents, you'll see a list of the files that you submitted to University Admissions. Unfortunately, you are unable to open and view these files. 

There is also a section for documents submitted by the postal/delivery service. It can take a few weeks to scan in and register the documents you send in this way. When the process is complete, you'll see a listing with a date. The date will be the date your documents arrived.

The application review process takes time

Due to the number of applications we receive, the application review process can take some time. Please note that an evaluation of your application does not automatically occur as soon as your documents are received. The application review process takes place up until the selection process, which occurs right before admissions results are posted. We appreciate your patience while the review process is completed.

Unfortunately, we do not currently have the capability on Universityadmissions.se to display uploaded documents. 

If you're concerned that you've uploaded an incorrect document, you can always upload the corrected one. Name it something that indicates it's an updated version of the previous document. For example, if you named your first document 'UppsalaCV', name the updated document 'UppsalaCV(2)' or 'UppsalaCVupdated'.

The best thing is to be sure the documents you're uploading - especially things like essays and letters of intent - are your final versions. Just as you would do if you were sending in them by regular post.
