Admission results

Information for admitted Bachelor's and Master's students

Where can I find my admission result?

You find your admission results by logging in to your account at the website. No official letter is sent from the University with your admission results. Admission results are only notified online in your account.

You will need to print the notification of results from your account as proof of your admission (a printed copy is needed for residence permit applications and for many other situations). Read more at

Admitted? You must reply to the offer to keep your place

Applications made in an international application round

If you are offered admission after applying in an international application round (mid-October to mid-January for autumn studies or early June to mid-August for spring studies) then in order to keep your place in the programme you must actively reply to the admission offer directly to Lund University by the specified deadline and according to the instructions provided by Lund University in your Notification of Selection Results and in emails sent from Lund University. This is done in the Student Portal, which you can log into once you have activated your student account. Note that it may take a day or two after the admission results until your programme/course offer is visible in the portal. If you do not actively accept your admission offer to Lund University by the deadline, you lose your place of study and it will be given to another student. If you do not want to accept your admission offer, you must always decline the place in your account.

Applications made in a Swedish/EU application round

If you applied in the later (Swedish/EU) application rounds (mid-March to mid-April for autumn semester studies, or mid-September to mid-October for spring semester studies), then in order to keep your place in the programme you must actively accept your offer through your account. If you do not accept your offer by the deadline, it will be given to another student. Read more about how to reply to your offer at

If you are conditionally admitted

You will receive a conditional admission if you are a non-EU/EEA student, until such time as your first tuition fee instalment payment has been received.

You will receive a conditional admission if you are a final-year Bachelor’s student who must submit the final transcripts and degree diploma before the start of the Master’s programme. These documents should be submitted to University Admissions in Sweden as soon as you receive them and prior to the start of the programme. In most cases you can upload the scanned original documents to your account at or post certified copies to University Admissions in Sweden. Remember to follow all document certification rules and any country-specific instructions when submitting your documents. It is important that you also bring your original documents to Lund, in case of any questions regarding your documents.

Note that students who are conditionally admitted also need to actively accept their place on the programme/course by the deadline and instructions given in the Notification of Selection Results.

If you are a reserve/on the wait list

Applications made in an international application round

If you applied in one of the international application rounds (mid-October or mid-January for autumn semester studies, or June to mid-August for spring semester studies) and are a reserve for a programme (or a conditional reserve), this means that you have not been admitted. There is no further step for you at this stage. The programme coordinators will contact you directly if a place becomes available. There is no specific deadline to receive this information – places can, in theory, become available until the start of the programme. Your chances of a place becoming available depend on other admitted students declining their place and the reserves ahead of you on the wait list also declining any place if it becomes available. You do not actively need to accept your reserve place in this admission round. However, if you are later offered admission with a place on the programme or course, you will need to accept that it if you wish to start your studies.

Applications made in a Swedish/EU application round

If you applied in the later (Swedish/EU) application round and are a reserve for a programme, you must accept the reserve offer before the deadline. This will ensure that you can be offered a place in the second selection round, if places become available. Your chances depend on other students declining their place. Meanwhile you may have also been offered admission to your next-choice programme. It is strongly recommended to accept both your reserve offer and the offer of admission to your next-choice programme. It is up to you if you decide to only accept the actual offer of admission to your next-choice programme, or if you only wish to accept the reserve position.
