Entry Requirements

To be admitted as a Master's student at Uppsala University, applicants must have been awarded a Bachelor's degree or equivalent from an internationally recognised university. Each Master's programme has more specific requirements that you must also satisfy. As all of the university's international Master's programmes are delivered in English, students must also have a good knowledge of written and spoken English. You will need to provide proof of your English proficiency through an internationally recognised test such as TOEFL or IELTS.

When the number of eligible applicants exceeds the number of places on offer in a programme a selection process takes place between applicants. Students are normally ranked on the basis of their qualifications; however, the mode of selection can vary from one programme to another.
