The wait is over. The selection results for Bachelor’s and Master’s applicants are out. So head on over to University Admissions and find out if you’ve been admitted to study in Sweden!
If you’ve been admitted
Congratulations! Even in this uncertain time, this is something to celebrate. But things aren’t really business as usual right now. And we know that you have a whole load of questions for us. Like: Will my university be open this autumn? Will I even be able to move to Sweden? What will happen if I’m in quarantine at the end of August? We wish we had clear answers to these types of questions. Right now, we don’t. But we’ll make sure you’re updated with the latest information.
As of 29 May, the Swedish government lifted earlier recommendations about distance learning. But it’s not certain whether teaching will be entirely on-campus this autumn. More information about this latest update can be found here.
There’s some stuff you’ll need to sort out before the start of the academic year. Paying the first tuition fee invoice, applying for a residence permit, finding somewhere to live. This kind of thing. Your university will also be in touch – they’re here for you, every step of the way.
We’ve also summed up what you’ve got to do next, step-by-step.
We’ll keep you updated on the situation with Covid-19
So, as you know, there’s currently a temporary ban on all non-essential travel to Sweden due to Covid-19. This temporary ban was put in place on 19 March, and is set to last until 15 June (updated 14/5). And several Swedish missions abroad may be limited in their capacity to assist in the processing of residence permit applications within normal timeframes. This may change as the situation evolves, and as soon as we have more answers, we’ll update this information.
Check out the info about Covid-19 from the university you’re admitted to

If your status is “reserve”
Ok, so this means you’re on the waiting list for your programme or course. But don’t panic, you could still be admitted. This depends on several factors.
If you weren’t admitted
We’re really sorry to hear that. Sweden is a popular study destination, and many highly qualified students tend to apply. But don’t give up! On 1 June, you can apply for studies during the spring of 2021 – why not try again?
