Application guide

For the international admission round, most Master's programmes require you to apply through the national applications system run by University Admissions in Sweden.

This is done at the website www.universityadmissions.se. It is only possible to submit an application during the two official admission rounds. Follow this step-by-step guide to ensure you submit a complete application.

Step 1: Find Your Master's Programme

The first thing you need to do is figure out what you would like to study. See and compare over 100 international Master's programmes at Uppsala University in our study programmes catalogue on our website.

Find your programme

Step 2: See Entry Requirements and Apply Online

  • Make sure you meet the general entry requirements that apply to all our Master's programmes.
  • See the programme-specific entry requirements for the programme you are interested in. To find the specific requirements, click on the Master's programme you are interested in and read the information under the section “Admissions”.
  • Start your application: create an account on the Universityadmissions.se website.
  • Rank your programme choices in order of preference and submit them before the application deadline. How you rank your programme choices is very important. Read how to rank your preferences.

Step 3: Submit Your Documents

See supporting documents

Don't miss the deadline!

The deadline for receipt of all kinds of supporting documents is 1 February. This means that the documents must arrive at the correct receiving address by the deadline. Keep in mind that it can take several weeks for e.g. hard copies or official digital GMAT score reports to be delivered. You must therefore plan ahead and have them completed and sent out in time. If your supporting documents do not arrive on time, your application will be considered late and will also make you ineligible for scholarships.

Step 4: Pay the Application Fee

If you are required to pay tuition fees, you should pay the application fee to University Admissions before the deadline. The deadline for receipt of the application fee is 1 February. This means the payment needs to arrive at University Admissions by the deadline. You should therefore find out how long it may take for the international payment transition and pay the fee in time. If the application fee is paid late, your application will be considered late and it will also make you ineligible for scholarships.

Applying to Courses within a Programme

If you are a current student in a Master's programme at Uppsala University, you may be required to apply for courses through www.universityadmissions.se. Your programme coordinator will inform you about the process for applying for courses within your specific programme, as they can differ greatly between departments.
