Application, scholarships, requirements and student fees
In most cases, applications to Swedish universities can be made at Universityadmissions.se. There you create a personal account to manage your application(s). The website is also a source of information about scholarships, requirements, student fees and other important study related subjects for international students. Again, the universities’ own official web pages typically present more detailed info regarding programmes and courses, such as student fees and specific requirements.
In some cases, the central admission system Universityadmissions.se may not have complete information. Don’t miss out on opportunities – contact Universityadmissions.se for questions about admissions, and universities for more about their programmes and courses. Also, note that not all of Stockholm’s universities currently have programmes and courses in English for international students.

All international students are encouraged to apply to the First admission round. The Second admission round can be an alternative for students from EU/EEA countries as they do not need a residence permit.
Every year many applications are not accepted due to lack of proper documentation – make sure your application meets and properly documents specific eligibility requirements for the course or programme in question.
