Application to programmes and courses

The next application period is between 15 March and 16 April 2020. Application to our master's programmes and freestanding courses is made via www.universityadmissions.se.

We regret to inform you that in case you are not a citizen of a country in the Schengen union, you cannot expect to have a residence permit for studies on time to start your studies in the autumn semester of 2020.
