Make sure you meet the course requirements
The departments that offer the courses in your course proposal determine whether you meet the academic entry requirements for each course. As some courses have limited availability, the departments also assess whether there is a place available for you. Please take note of this and ensure that you fulfill all the academic entry requirements before including a course in your proposal.
If you have questions about your course proposal, read more about course mapping for exchange students or get in touch with your contact person at Uppsala University.
Wait for your course proposal to be assessed
After the Unit for International Mobility has received and reviewed your application, it will be evaluated and processed for admissions notification. Your transcript of records and course proposal will be shared with the relevant departments for assessment.
Admissions target date
When it is confirmed that you meet the entry requirements for your chosen courses and there is available space, your Certificate of Acceptance and/or Letter of Admissions will be issued. This evaluation process will be completed before:
- Mid-June for the autumn semester intake
- Early December for the spring semester intake
Note: If you have not received a reply by the periods specified above, you must contact the Unit for International Mobility or your home university.
