Where and when do I apply for courses and programmes at SLU?
Answer: You apply for courses and programmes at SLU at universityadmissions.se. At universityadmissions.se, you can also see which of your qualifications that have already been registered, and you can read your preliminary assessment and reply to your notification of selection results.
It is important that you apply in time. The deadline for application depends on which course or programme you want to apply for. Find out more about important dates.
You can make a late application for many of our courses and programmes after the deadline for application. For more information, see late application.
How do I apply to study at SLU?
Answer: You will find information on how to apply to a master's programme at SLU, step by step, at universityadmissions.se.
Please read the information carefully to make sure you don't overlook important information.
Can I apply for a bachelor's programme at SLU?
Answer: SLU does not offer any programmes in English at Bachelor's level.
Do I need to send a letter of recommendation, letter of intent, CV, or summaries of essays?
Answer: No! SLU does not require a letter of recommendation, letter of intent, CV or summaries of essays. You will find more information about how to document your eligibility at universityadmissions.se
Does it matter how I rank my choice of courses or programmes?
Answer: Yes, a very important part of the application process is ranking the courses and programmes you're applying for. If there is a place available, and you meet the entry requirements, you will be offered a place on the course or programme that you have ranked as your first choice. This means that you will be evaluated for your first choice first. You can read more about ranking your selections at universityadmissions.se.
You will only be offered one study place on a programme. This means that if you are offered a place on a programme with a higher ranking, the programme(s) with a lower ranking will be deleted from your application.
Can I change the ranking order after submitting my application?
Answer: Yes, you can change the ranking order until the application deadline. After the application deadline, you cannot change the ranking order of the programmes that you have already applied to. You may, however, add programmes and place them anywhere in the ranking order. You may also delete programmes and add them to the application again, but in a different place. If you add new courses and programmes after the deadline, your application will be considered a late application. You can read more about applying after the deadline at universityadmissions.se.
I didn't apply in time. What are my chances of being admitted to a specific programme or course?
Answer: Even if the application deadline has passed it might still be possible to submit a late application to courses and programmes. If a course or programme is open for late application, this is indicated by a green 'add' button next to the name in the course/programme listing at http://www.universityadmissions.se/.
It is always better to submit a complete application by the respective deadline. That way, you can ensure that you will be considered for the courses or programmes you have applied for. SLU processes all late applications in strict order by application date. Your chances depend on the number of students who have applied in time and have accepted their place, and of course on where you are on the waiting list.
Late applications are processed strictly by application date. The application date is the date your application had been made and was complete with all necessary documentation verifying that you meet the entry requirements. You will receive a notification by email once your late application has been processed. Log in to your account at http://www.universityadmissions.se/ to view your notification of selection results.
More information about late applications and waiting lists can be found on SLU's student web.
What happens if I forget to reply to my offer?
Answer: If you forget to reply to your offer in time to the first notification of selection results, the offer will be deleted. Read more on how to reply to your offer at universityadmissions.se.
If the course or programme you forgot to reply to is open for late application, you can make a late application via universityadmissions.se.
If the course or programme is closed for late application, you cannot submit a late application. Instead, you will have to wait until next time the course or programme is open for application.
My application for a specific course or programme has been deleted in the selection because I didn't meet the requirements. What do I do now?
Answer: If your choice has been deleted in the selection because you did not meet the requirements, and if later on you meet all the requirements, you can make a late application. This is only possible if the course or programme is open for late application (the green 'add' button).
You can read more about why your application has been deleted in the section on the notification of selection results at universityadmissions.se.
I'm on the waiting list. How do I know if I will be offered a place, and when will I know?
Answer: Late applications are processed by arrival date of your application. The arrival date is the date your application had been made and was complete with all necessary documentation verifying that you meet the entry requirements. You will receive a notification by email once your late application has been processed. Log in to your account at http://www.universityadmissions.se/ to view your notification of selection results.
Please see the section on waiting list and late application for more information.
I'm on the waiting list for a course or programme. Can I show up on the first day of class and be registered if someone else doesn't show up?
Answer: No, only students who are admitted to studies should attend the roll call. There is no point attending the roll call if you haven't been admitted to a course or a programme.
