New in Sweden and want to study

If you have recently arrived in Sweden and wish to study at Uppsala University there are a few things that are important to consider. Depending on what kind of education you have and what you want to continue to study, different rules and application procedures apply.

To begin with, you should apply to have your previous qualifications evaluated. You should also acquire knowledge of Swedish or English if you do not already do so. 

Check if you meet the entry requirements so that you know if you need to take a supplementary upper secondary course to ensure that you are eligible for studies in Sweden.
