On the waiting list

After the selection process is completed, applicants on a waiting list may be offered a place if someone else has declined their offer. Some courses and programmes admit many waiting list applicants, others none at all.

For many courses and programmes, more applicants are admitted than there are really places for. This means many non-acceptances may be needed before any applicants can be admitted from a waiting list. There is therefore no guarantee that an applicant who is number 1 on the waiting list will get in, even if someone declines their place.

To be offered a place

If you are on a waiting list for a course or programme, you have to be offered a place before you can register. The University will contact you if you can be offered a place. If you are offered a place, you may have to confirm your acceptance promptly. There is often a date and time by which you must reply to keep your place.

Make sure the contact information in your account at universityadmissions.se is correct so that the University can get hold of you quickly. Keep an eye on your spam mail folder in case important messages have ended up there.

The University cannot estimate your chances of getting a place

We regret that the University cannot reply to questions about your chances of getting a place or when any notification may come.
