Your most frequently asked questions

It's difficult to say if and when an applicant on reserve (waiting list) or with a late application will find out if they've been offered a place:

  • universities offer places to people on reserve as they become available. It's impossible to say if places will open in a course or programme as an accepted applicant needs to decline their place for it to be made available.
  • late applicants may be considered if there are still places available after all reserves have been contacted.  

After selection, if the university decides to offer you admission, you'll receive an email along with a new Notification of Selection Results. In most cases, the university will be in touch with you directly.

In some cases, you won't hear from the university until after the semester starts.

If you do not wish to keep your place, you should decline your offer. This will remove you from the university's class and contact list for the course and make the space available to other interested applicants.

If you wish to keep your place, you do not need to reply to your offer. All contact from this point on should be directly between you and your university.

In order to complete your admissions application, there are several things we need from you:

  • Documentation of your previous studies
  • Proof of English skills
  • Payment of the application fee (if required)
  • Documentation of your citizenship status in an EU/EEA country (if you're a citizen)

For more information, please see the following links:

Documenting your EU/EEA citizenship

The application status ‘Unqualified’ means that you don’t fulfil the general entry requirements. You haven’t submitted complete documentation by the supporting documentation deadline.

The status is not a final admissions result.

If you believe you meet the general entry requirements, you can submit further documentation as proof. Any documents you submit at this stage won’t be assessed until after the admission results have been published.

You can change the ranking of your courses and programmes up until the application deadline. 

If it's after the application deadline, you cannot change your ranking.

However, you can delete courses and programmes up until the first selection. This process takes places a few days before the admissions results are published. The lower ranked courses and programmes will then move up the ranking. Your application will still be considered to be timely. 

You can also reapply for the lower ranked course/programme after the admissions results have been published on There are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Please note that you may only reapply for courses that were deleted because of ranking and NOT because you weren't qualified.
  • If you reapply for a lower ranked course or programme, you may be competing for a limited number of places and there's no guarantee that you will be offered one. 

More information can be found at Reapplying to courses and programs.

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 wish to reapply for and indicate in what order you wish to rank them
  • you can submit your documents at any time.

If you applied in the First round

If you applied to the First round, you're not required to reply to your admissions offer here on However, please note that the university that you've been accepted to may require you to reply to them. Be sure to follow any instructions given to you by your university.

We hope that you'll choose to study in Sweden! However, if you decide not to accept the place you've been offered, please be sure to decline it here on In that way, you let the university know you won't be attending and free up the place for someone on the waiting list.
