Application and admission

Last changed: 18 April 2017

On this web page you will find more information about how to apply for studies and how to reply to your notification of selection results.

You apply for courses and study programmes through University Admissions in Sweden, the online application system for most courses and programmes offered at Swedish universities. Your registered qualifications are visible on your profile on University Admissions, and you can also read your preliminary assessment and reply to your notification of results.

It is important that you apply in time. The deadline for applications that applies to you depends on which courses or study programmes you want to apply for. The dates are listed under important dates.

Remember that your application is not complete until you have uploaded any supplementary qualifications to or submitted by regular post to the University Admissions in Sweden, FE 20102, 839 87 Östersund, SWEDEN.

If you are already a student at SLU you can find more information about how to apply if you log on to the Student web.

Find out more about entry requirements and selection.

Did you get admitted? You find information about when the course starts, the timetable and the reading list on the course pages on the Student web.

Would you like to apply for a programme and already finished courses on a similar education earlier, maybe you are qualified to latter parts of the programme. You can find more information at: Admission to latter parts of SLU programmes

Reply to your notification of selection results

If you have been admitted to a course or study programme or have been placed on a waiting list in the first selection round, you must accept your offer in order to keep your place. The last date to reply to your offer is stated in your notification of selection results.

Application and tuition fees

Prior to the autumn semester 2011, application and tuition fees were introduced at basic and advanced level for applicants who are not citizens of the EU, EEA countries or Switzerland. As a Swedish citizen, you do not need to pay either application or tuition fees. Fee-paying students are required to pay the tuition fee before they can begin their studies. Find out more at

The information from your application and your study result are recorded electronically. Some information is forwarded to Statistics Sweden (SCB), the Swedish Higher Education Authority (Universitetskanslersämbetet), the Swedish Ministry of Education and Research and the Central student finance board (CSN).
