All admission rounds have their own special set of important dates for:

  • application deadlines
  • when transcripts and English test results must be received
  • when the application fee (if required) must be paid 
  • admissions decisions
  • deadline for replying to admission offers (if a reply is required).

Please see Key dates and deadlines to find your admission round and your key dates.

 

Master's applicants can apply for up to 4 study programmes, but will be offered a place in just 1.

Please note that ranking your selections is very important. If you're offered a place in a higher ranked programme, the ones that are ranked lower will be deleted.

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.

University Admissions will only review an admissions application - including checking if the applicant meets the entry requirements - when:

  • the applicant has submitted an admissions application
  • the application fee is paid (fee-paying students)
  • citizenship has been verified through submitted documentation (EU/EES/Swiss applicants)

Please note there's no guarantee an application will be reviewed if the application, documentation and fee deadlines have been missed.

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.

No, you can't. Our application review process will not begin until the student has completed the following:

  • submitted an electronic application by the deadline
  • submitted all required documentation by the deadline
  • paid the application fee, if required, by the deadline. 

If you are unsure about your fee status, please see the information provided on this website. If your question is specifically regarding your residency status, contact the Swedish Migration Agency for more information.
