Final year Bachelor's students

Can I apply for studies if I am in the final year of my Bachelor's degree?

In general, Master's programmes require a Bachelor's degree as a basic admission requirement.  If you are in your final year of undergraduate degree studies, most programmes will still accept your application to the programme. This is known as an application with 'qualifications pending'.

You must include with your application an official document stating:

  • that you are registered for the last semester of your undergraduate programme, and
  • date of expected graduation, and
  • an official transcript of records of your studies thus far.

You must be awarded your undergraduate degree before you start the programme. 

University Admissions in Sweden has created a template for students to give to their university to complete and confirm their final-year Bachelor's degree status. You find the template on the University Admissions in Sweden website as follows:

Once you have completed your Bachelor's degree studies

Official documents of your completed undergraduate degree must be submitted to University Admissions in Sweden as soon as you receive them and before the start of the programme. In most cases, you can either upload the original document to your account at or send certified copies via regular post 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.

If your final transcript is not available by the start of the programme, you will not be able to start the programme. This applies to all applicants, both EU/EEA and non-EU/EEA applicants.
