Features of admission to universities in Sweden for international students

When deciding to get a higher education in Sweden, an applicant must take into account several important points necessary for successful admission to a Swedish university. Having decided on the institution and specialty, prepare documents - remember that submitting them to Swedish universities is necessary for several months:

  • from December 1 to January 16, if you plan to be in time for the fall semester (classes from September);
  • from June 1 to August 15, if you plan to catch the spring semester (classes from January).

For admission to most universities in Sweden, a desire, confidence and a certificate confirming knowledge of the English language: TOEFL or IELTS are sufficient. To get a certificate, you can visit the language schools and camps in Sweden or Europe, which open summer vacation courses for children. You can learn English or Swedish - in the second case, even more academic programs will be available for the applicant when entering the university.

Swedish universities have introduced a common ECTS point system - they must be earned during the year (each year corresponds to 60 points).

  • Bachelor's degree lasts 2-3 years;
  • Master's program - 1-2 years;
  • Doctoral studies - 6 years: 2 of them are licensed, 4 - PhD.

The principle of students' work is based on independent work: teachers give direction, and students themselves look for ways to solve problems. Teachers help when necessary, they are friendly with students and are able to engage in the desired useful process.

Many applicants cannot afford the cost of studying and living in Sweden, which is why the government and private foundations offer scholarships and study grants for foreign students. You can apply to several funds by receiving a scholarship covering from 20-25% to 100% of the cost of the program. More than a hundred grants for research and study are annually allocated to prospective students with a high level of knowledge of the language, desire and perseverance.

In your free time, you can relax and visit the sights of the Scandinavian Peninsula - this is an amazing place with a rich history. Scandinavia is distinguished by its beautiful nature, which is breathtaking: reserves, fjords, forests, lakes, which have no analogues in any country.

Getting higher education in Sweden, you will also get a unique experience of communication with representatives of different races and nationalities, because Americans, Asians, Africans, Europeans study at universities in Sweden. This is an invaluable contribution to your future and an interesting pastime in the company of people with their own history, traditions and culture.
