Entry Requirements and selection criteria

Before you can be admitted to a university or university college, you must fulfil certain entry requirements. If there are more applicants who fulfil the entry requirements than there are places, a selection is made. Here you will find information about the rules that apply at SLU.

General entry requirements

General entry requirements must be met for all higher education. There are general entry requirements for courses and programmes at both Bachelor's level and Master's level. Find out more about general entry requirements at www.universityadmissions.se Opens in new window

Specific entry requirements

There are often specific entry requirements in addition to the general entry requirements. Specific entry requirements vary depending on the course and programme and consist of requirements for specific prior knowledge that is necessary for you to be able to follow a given course or programme. These entry requirements may include, for example, upper secondary school courses or academic courses. You can find out which ones are required in the relevant course syllabus.

Conditional entry requirements for a course

If at the time of application you do not fulfil the entry requirements, but you will be in a position to fulfil the requirements by the time the course starts, you can be admitted conditionally or placed on a waiting list conditionally. The conditions must be fulfilled by the time the course starts for you to begin and be registered on the course and it is the department or equivalent that will check this. Please note that admissions cannot subsequently remove a condition for a course, but the decision on whether or not you fulfil the condition will be made by the relevant department.

You cannot be conditionally admitted on a course if you make a late application after the course has started, since the entry requirements must be fulfilled at the time the course starts.

Conditional entry requirements for programmes at Master's level

If at the time of application you do not fulfil the entry requirements, but you will be in a position to fulfil the requirements by the time the programme starts, you can be admitted conditionally or placed on a waiting list conditionally. The conditions must be fulfilled no later than three weeks after the programme starts and you must contact Admissions Office at SLU yourself to demonstrate that you fulfil the conditions.

Selection

If there are more applicants who fulfil the entry requirements for a course or a programme than there are places, a selection must be made from among the applicants. You can find out more about the allocation of places and selection at www.universityadmissions.se Opens in new window and in SLU’s admission regulations.

 

SLU’s admission regulations

SLU’s admission regulations contain all the rules for education applied by the university with regard to applications, entry requirements and exemption from entry requirements, as well as selection, and with regard to how decisions on admissions and exemptions from entry requirements are made. If you have a question about any of the rules, the answer can probably be found in the admission regulations.

Admission regulations for courses and study programmes which begin after 31 July 2011.
