MAKE SURE YOU UNDERSTAND THE GENERAL AND PROGRAMME-SPECIFIC ENTRY REQUIREMENTS BEFORE YOU APPLY
We are glad that you are considering making an application to one of Uppsala University's Master's programmes!
The application periods for Master's programmes and courses starting in the autumn of 2015 have now closed. However, several of Uppsala University's Master's programmes will open for late application on 15 July 2015. More information about the late application system can be found below.
There are two application periods for Master's programmes and courses starting in the autumn of 2016. The first application period, which is open to all international applicants, is from mid-October 2015 to mid-January 2016. We strongly encourage ALL international students to apply during the first application round. Applications are made through www.universityadmissions.se.
The second application round is primarily for Swedish students, and is open from mid-March to mid-April 2016. Applications are made through www.antagning.se.
When to Apply
International Application Round
For the international application round, you apply through the website www.universityadmissions.se. This is a national central application system, which means that you can apply for several different programmes and/or courses at different universities in Sweden with the one application. On the University Admissions website, you are able to create a user account, search for programmes and courses, create an online application, pay the application fee (if required) and reply to offers of admission. When applying for several different Master's programmes you must rank them in order of preference. You will also be required to provide documentation to support your application, which includes academic transcripts and English test results. Some Master's programmes will also require you to provide more extensive documentation. For more information, please view the individual programme information or www.universityadmissions.se.
Swedish Application Round
Students who are citizens of a country within the European Union, European Economic Area, or Switzerland are also able to apply through the second, Swedish application round. Applications are made in Swedish through the website www.antagning.se. The selection results for students who apply during the second application round will be sent out in late July and early August. Therefore, students who require a Swedish residence permit will not have time to obtain one before the start of the semester. Due to the housing situation in Uppsala, students who are admitted during the second application round must also be aware that it will be extremely difficult for them to arrange accommodation at such a late time.
Please note, this information also applies to applications to freestanding courses.
Several of Uppsala University's Master's programmes will also open for application on 15 July 2015. However, only students who are EU/EEA citizens will be able to make use of this opportunity. It is not yet known which programmes will open application in July, and students must apply through the Swedish application system www.antagning.se. Please contact the programme coordinator before applying.

To ensure you have the best chance of being admitted to a programme or course, you should submit your application as early as possible and always before the given deadline.
At Uppsala University, some programmes and courses stop accepting applications through universityadmissions.se after the last date to apply has passed. Other programmes remain open. If students submit their application after the deadline their application will be regarded as late. After the application period, admissions officers will begin by assessing applications that were submitted on time. After this process is completed, and if there are still places available in the programme or course, late applications will be considered.
Procedures for late applications differ in the second application period, where students apply through the Swedish website www.antagning.se. After the deadline has passed, all programmes and courses close for application. Once applications that were submitted on time are processed, and if there are still places available in the programme or course, it will reopen and students will be able to submit a late application.
Receiving supporting documents after the deadline
Please note, even if you submit your application through www.universityadmissions.se or www.antagning.se on time, if your supporting documents are not submitted correctly or received after the given deadline then your application will be regarded as late. Late applications will only be considered if there are places still available in a programme or course after applications submitted on time are processed.
Please note, students who submit a late application will not be eligible to receive a scholarship. It is therefore important that all students submit a complete application on time.
