Requirements

There are general as well as specific admission requirements for SLU's Master's programmes. The general requirements are the same for all programmes, while the specific requirements are unique for each programme.

General Requirements

Previous Studies
SLU requires that students have a completed Bachelor’s degree, equivalent to a Swedish Bachelor’s degree (180 HEC), from a university recognised by the Swedish government and/or accredited by other recognised organisations according to The International Association of Universities (www.unesco.org/iau/onlinedatabases/list.html).

Students in their final year of undergraduate education in EU/EES countries may also, if the student meets the general admission requirements, receive a conditional acceptance. However, in most instances, specific requirements for the programme must be fulfilled by the student at the time of application.

Specific Requirements
