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. Why not try again? On 1 June you can apply for studies starting in the spring of 2024. ↗️ And then in October you’ll be able to apply for programmes starting in autumn 2024. (Just a heads-up – there’s usually way more programmes to choose from in the autumn intake.)
