Here you will find information about the application process. Even if you are already studying on a programme you still need to apply for the courses for the following semester.


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.

It is important that you apply in time. The deadline for applications that applies to you is dependent on which courses or study programmes you want to apply for; find out more at important dates.

New procedure for late applications

At SLU, the deadline for applying for spring semester courses is 15 October. Make sure you apply in good time, as you cannot apply between 16 October and 14 December. This applies even if you are admitted to a programme and will only be taking programme courses.

Remember that your application is not complete until you have submitted any supplementary qualifications to the University Admissions in Sweden.

Find out more about entry requirements.

If you have been admitted on a programme and have accepted your place, you can find more information about when the course starts, the timetable and the reading list on the course web pages.

If you are already studying on a programme

In almost all cases you still need to apply for the courses for the following semester, even if you do not actually have any options. This is to confirm that you intend to continue your studies and so that we can check whether you meet the entry requirements for the future courses.

If you are a student at SLU, you can go to the tab Log in and select the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences under the heading Log in with university accont Then follow the instructions.

Reply to your notification of selection results

If you have been admitted on a course or study programme or have been placed on a waiting list, you must accept your place in order to keep it. 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
If you are a citizen from outside EU/EEA/Switzerland, there are some exemptions.


How your information is used

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).

Your personal data is processed according to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Here you can find more information on how SLU handles your personal data.
