Late applications

Late applications

We strongly encourage you to apply to courses and programmes before the application deadline, to pay your application fee before the deadline and to make sure all documents (including certified proof of your citizenship) reach University Admissions in Sweden before the document deadline, in order to ensure that your application will be processed and considered. Applications received after the deadline are regarded as late and there is no guarantee that your application will even be reviewed.

Extended application deadline

Sometimes a programme or course extends the application deadline. In these cases you will find the message "late applications are accepted" by the programme/course information. You apply with the usual application steps. In some cases you will get your notification directly from the programme coordinator.

The later application round for Swedish residents and EU/EEA students

If you are an EU/EEA citizen (or if you already have a residence permit in Sweden or the EU/EEA) and have you missed the international application round, it may be possible for you to apply for some programmes and courses in the "Swedish student" application rounds (15 March-15 April for studies commencing in autumn; 15 September-15 October for studies commencing in spring).

However, please note that most international programmes will not be open for applications in this application round.

In the case that you are able to apply for your programme in the later "Swedish student" application round, you apply at the national application website for Swedish students www.antagning.se. Once you have found the programme there, start by creating an account at the international student application website www.universityadmissions.se and follow the same steps as when you apply in the international application round. Be aware that the admission results are announced very close to the start of the academic semester.

Non-EU/EEA citizens will generally not be able to apply in the later application rounds, as they will not be able to get their residence permits in time for the start of the semester.
