How to Apply

To apply for Uppsala University’s scholarships you must first apply for one of Uppsala University's Master's programmes or Bachelor's programmes in the area of Game Design through the website www.universityadmissions.se. You can find more information about the application process on the following link: Application.

You must then submit an online scholarship application. It is important to note that students must submit two separate applications. Just because you apply to a Master's or Bachelor's programme, it does not mean that you have applied for a scholarship. Students are only eligible to receive a scholarship if they also submit an online scholarship application in addition to their Master's or Bachelor's programme application. The application deadline for both programmes and scholarships is the same.

The application period for Master's programmes at Uppsala University is from 16 October 2015 to 15 January 2016. The application period for Bachelor's programmes in the area of Game Design is from 1 December 2015 to 15 January 2016. The application period for scholarships is also from 1 December 2015 to 15 January 2016.

There is no application fee when applying for Uppsala University's scholarships. You may apply for more than one scholarship provided that you meet the criteria, however it is only possible to be awarded one scholarship from Uppsala University. It is not compulsory to submit documents (such as reference letters) with your scholarship application. Please note, the chance of receiving a scholarship is not enhanced by applying early. There is no correlation between an early application and the award of a scholarship. However, both your Master's or Bachelor's programme application and your scholarship application must be submitted by the deadline, 15 January 2016. 

Please note, the application period for scholarships for programmes commencing in autumn 2016 is now closed. Scholarships available for international students applying to programmes commencing in autumn 2017 will be announced here in autumn 2016. Applications for these scholarships will open in December 2016.

Selection Process

Uppsala University’s scholarships for tuition liable students are merit-based and are awarded to academically talented students who show an interest in belonging to an educational milieu. Information about your academic performance is taken from the supporting documents you submit when applying to Master's or Bachelor's studies. The written motivation in your online scholarship application is also taken into account. Financial need does not factor into the awarding.

The scholarship selection process will be undertaken in parallel with the programme selection process. To gain entrance to the programme, and be awarded a scholarship, students must meet all general and specific entry requirements. The application fee and supporting documents must also be received before the deadline. Students who submit incomplete applications or do not apply in time will not be considered for scholarships at Uppsala University.
