Programme specific requirements

Applicants are expected to have a bachelor's degree. Each applicant must enclose a letter of intent written in English, explaining why they want to study this programme, and a summary of their bachelor's essay or project. If applicants hold a degree that does not include a bachelor's essay or project, then their letter of intent should describe previous studies and any other academic activities related to the master's programme.

All supporting documents, including the letter of intent and the specific paper, should be submitted to University Admissions in Sweden.

There are two ways to submit your documents to University Admissions – you can  send them in via regular post  or you can upload them on Universityadmissions.se. Please note that for some specific countries, Sweden requires applicants to send in certified copies of their academic documents through the regular mail. It is therefore important that you check what is required for your country: Academic qualifications requirements for my country.
