In order to document your eligibility, you must provide your high school diploma and university transcript and proof of your English language proficiency.  
The online application opens on 15 March 2019. The last day for application is 15 April 2019. When the last day to apply has passed, it is still possible to submit a late application, but please note that this applies only for courses that are open for late application.

Entry requirements 

To meet the entry requirements for these courses you need to have previous academic qualifications (university studies). You will find the specific entry requirements on the course pages. If you don’t have the academic qualifications required you can still be eligible to the courses by work experience, other studies etc.

No academic qualifications?

Even if you do not have the formal academic qualifications needed for a specific course, you can apply for the course and get your eligibility evaluated based on knowledge acquired in other ways. This is also known as a validation of prior learning. 

Validation - recognition of prior learning

Recognition of prior learning means the mapping out and assessment of an individual's competence and qualifications, regardless how, where or when they were acquired – in the formal education system or in some other way in Sweden or abroad, just recently or a long time ago.
If you think your knowledge and competences will qualify you for a course, you must upload a CV, with description of your educational and professional background. Your CV must describe your knowledge and competences in relation to the entry requirements. You also need to upload an Employers certificate to verify your work experience if that that is what you refer to for eligibility. Download a template below and add your personal details and your employer’s signature. You should then upload the certificate together with your course application on antagning.se. 

If we need more information, we will contact you.
