2. Create an account at universityadmissions.se

Create an account at the national University Admissions in Sweden website and follow the steps to make your online application

3. Submit your supporting documents

Submit all supporting documents to University Admissions in Sweden so that they are received before the deadlineDepending on the country you are from, you may be able to scan and upload your original documents to your account at universityadmissions.se, or you may be required to have them submitted in hardcopy (in some cases directly by the University). You must check the country-specific requirements and document rules for Master's studies and for Bachelor's studies in case of other rules and instructions before you submit the following documents, to ensure you follow the instructions correctly and that your documents can be accepted:​ 

  • All official certificates, diplomas and transcripts that are required to prove you meet the admission requirements. If you upload your documents to your www.universityadmissions.se account, you must make sure you scan the original documents (not copies). If the country rules require you to submit these documents in hardcopy yourself, then they need to be certified copies. For some countries, it is the university that needs to submit the official transcript directly to University Admissions in Sweden (not the student). 
  • Proof of English language skills (e.g. TOEFL or IELTS test)
  • The page in your passport with your personal data and photograph (scan and upload from the original document)
  • Any additional documents required by the programme or course as part of their selection requirements (e.g. statement of purpose, CV, writing sample).
  • Cover sheet (printed from your online application) -  this is only needed by some students who are required to submit documents in harcopy themselves (but not when documents must be sent directly by the university - do not give your university this document). The cover sheet is also used for a few of our programmes who require you to have a reference letter submitted by the reference person directly to University Admissions in Sweden.

4. Pay the application fee

Pay the University Admissions in Sweden application fee before the deadline to ensure your application will be considered (for non-EU/EEA students). 

Note: It does not matter which order you submit some or all of your documents and pay the application fee. What matters is that everything is received by University Admissions in Sweden by the 1 February deadline at latest.
