Congratulations! Even in this uncertain time, this is definitely something to celebrate! 🎈 Celebrate like crazy, while keeping it corona safe. 👌

What’s next?

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 be in touch with you – they’re here for you, every step of the way. So, wait for their emails and you’ll know how to proceed with the tuition fee and housing. Got any very special questions? Your university is just an email away.

And don’t forget that we have awesome tips for you on our student blog as well, to help you prepare everything before you come. We’re sure you also wanna follow us on our Instagram↗️, YouTube↗️ and Facebook↗️, don’t you? 😜

Live stream on residence permit applications

How to apply for a residence permit? We do have some information about residence permit applications – have a look. 🧐 But things aren’t really business as usual right now. And we know that you have a whole load of questions for us.

So, we are gonna hold a live stream 🥁 at 16:00-17:00 CEST on 28 April and walk you through some of the basics related to your residence permit application.

We’ll also be joined by the Swedish Migration Agency who will be doing their best answering questions on the chat on YouTube live. Just a heads-up that we’ll be covering basic questions and for more detailed questions it’s probably best you contact the Migration Agency directly. 🤝

Can’t make it to the live event? Don’t worry! The recording of the live stream will be available on our YouTube account↗️ for you to watch whenever it’s convenient for you.

How do you join? Easy, just swing by our YouTube account↗️ on 28 April at 16.00 CEST!

We are also gonna send the invitation to all the admitted students via email. Check your email over the next few days and we hope to see you at the live stream! 🙌

Keep yourself updated on the situation with Covid-19

You are perhaps wondering: Will my courses be taught on campus this autumn? What will happen if I can’t travel to Sweden as planned? Well, we wish we had clear answers to these types of questions. But right now, we don’t. It depends a lot on the university or the courses you are joining, and also how the pandemic will be in the autumn. The universities are keeping a close eye on the situation and making decisions accordingly. They will keep you updated via email and will be supporting you over the coming months.

Currently, there’s a temporary entry ban on all non-essential travel from non-EU countries to Sweden due to Covid-19. The good news is the travel ban does not apply to those with a residence permit for studies in Sweden. But several Swedish missions abroad↗️ may still be limited in their capacity to assist in the processing of residence permit application within normal time frames.

If your status is “reserve”

Okay, so this means you’re on the waiting list for your programme or course. But don’t panic, you could still be admitted later. 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 (check out this blog)! On 1 June, you can apply for studies starting in the spring of 2022↗️ – why not try again? With that being said, there are always more programmes to choose for the autumn semester, so if you prefer, come back to on 18 October and apply again.

(If you’re confused about your selection result, this guide can help you interpret things↗️.)
