You have to carefully read all information on your monitor when you are applying online. After the online application has been completed, the next step is to document your eligibility for the courses you have applied for.

After online application, you will receive all necessary information sent to your email address (which you indicate while applying). You have to read and thoroughly follow all instruction that will be sent to your email address from the admission department after your application.

In order to document your eligibility, you must provide University Admissions in Sweden with

a) copies of your previous study information

b) proof of identity (if you do not have a Swedish civic registration number)

c) proof of your English proficiency.

Please note, if you are a citizen in an EU/EEA country or Switzerland, you do not have to pay application or tuition fees. Therefore, it is important to send a proof of your identity.

If you are a citizen in any other country, you have to pay application fees (ca 130$) and if you be admitted, you have to pay tuition fees as well (ca 1300$ for half time studies during one semester).

After you have made an online application, the following documents should be sent to Sweden in order to prove your eligibility:

a) Copies of your previous study information

If you have not been a student in Sweden before, you have to provide copies of your previous study information. Upper secondary school documents in English, French, Spanish, German, Danish, Norwegian, Swedish and Finnish do not need to be translated. Upper secondary school documents in Icelandic regarding grades, such as transcripts and diplomas, do not need to be translated; however, other documents in Icelandic, such as a certificate of name change, must be translated.

If your documents are in any other language, you must send in attested copies of the documents in original language and authorized translations of the documents into Swedish or English.

Documents from university level studies that are in a language other than English, French, German, Danish, or Norwegian must be translated.


b) Proof of identity

If you are Swedish citizen, you don’t have to provide a proof of identity.

In order to expedite the processing of your application, we require a photocopy of the page in your passport with your personal data and photograph, or some other identification document. If you are from an EU/EEA country or Switzerland and are required to document your citizenship status in order to be considered exempt from paying application and tuition fees, your passport photocopy must be certified. For more information, please see: EU/EEA students exempt from fees

If you are not a citizen of an EU/EEA country or Switzerland, certification of your passport photocopy is not required.


c) Proof of your English proficiency

You must also present proof of proficiency in the English language. The entry requirement is usually the equivalent of English studies at secondary level in Sweden (English course A). If your secondary school qualification in English does not fulfill this requirement, you must submit the official results from an internationally recognized test such as TOEFL or IELTS.

All your copies should be attested, which means that somebody, a private person or authorities, should write on each copy that the copy is true, sign it, write their full name and telephone number.

Students may send their supporting documentation to central admission office via the regular postal service or through a delivery service. Please note that the delivery and postal address are the same; a delivery service does not need a street address for us to receive your documents.
