Welcome to Uppsala University - Campus Gotland

Don’t miss the deadline!

To ensure you have the best chance of being admitted to a programme or course, you should submit your application and supporting documents as early as possible during the application period and always before the given deadlines.

Late applications

The ordinary application process is closed once the last date to apply has passed. However, some programmes and courses will remain open for late applications. If you submit your application after the application deadline, your application will be regarded as late. Once the application period closes, 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 admission round, where students apply through the Swedish application website 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

Even if you submit your application on time, if your supporting documents are not submitted correctly or received after the given deadline, then your application will be regarded as late.

Students who submit a late application will not be eligible to receive a scholarship. It is therefore important that you submit a complete application on time.

Arriving in Sweden after the start of the semester

If you are admitted to a Bachelor's or Master's programme, you must be in Sweden when the programme starts. If you are prevented from participating in the first class of the semester, you should send an email to or contact your programme coordinator directly, let them know that you are not able to start the programme on time, and ask for the last possible date that you can arrive. You must receive written confirmation that you are still allowed to commence the programme before travelling to Sweden.

If you are a fee-paying student and are not permitted to join your programme after the semester has commenced, please send an email to along with the decision from your programme coordinator.

Deferral of studies

If you are admitted to a programme and want to postpone the commencement of your studies, you can apply for deferral of studies.

Your application should explain your reasons for deferral and be supported by documents. University policy only approves deferral based on extraordinary circumstances, such as medical reasons illness, family crisis or compulsory military service. If you refer to medical reasons, for example, you need to submit a doctor's certificate. Not being able to afford tuition is not a valid reason for deferral. In fact, you can only be granted deferral if the first instalment of tuition has been made to Uppsala University.

Apply for deferral of studies

Applications can also be made by sending a letter to the Admissions Office, Box 256, SE-751 05 Uppsala, Sweden.
