For the international application round, most Master's programmes require you to apply through the national applications system run by University Admissions in Sweden. It is only possible to submit an application during the following application rounds.
Follow this step-by-step guide to ensure you submit a complete application.
Step 1: find your Master's programme
Check the list of Master's programmes on our website to find the Master's programme you would like to study!
Step 2: Apply online
- Check you meet the general entry requirements for all Master's programmes.
- Check you meet the programme-specific entry requirements. To check the specific requirements, click on the Master's programme you are interested in and read the information under the section “Application and Requirements”.
- Start your application: create an account on the University Admissions in Sweden website.
- Rank your programme choices in order of preference and submit them before the application deadline on 16 January 2017.
How your rank your programme choices is very important. Read how to rank your preferences on www.universityadmissions.se.
Step 3: submit your documents
