General entry requirements

To meet the general entry requirements for bachelor’s studies, you must:

  • have successfully completed your upper secondary (high school) education (post-16), and
  • be able to demonstrate proficiency in English. The entry requirement for bachelor’s studies in Sweden is to have studied the equivalent of the Swedish upper secondary course English 6. See English Language Requirements for more information.
  • For students who received their final school grades after 31 December 2009, there is an additional mathematics requirement. The student must have successfully completed courses in mathematics equal to the Swedish courses Mathematics 1a, 1b or 1c.

Specific entry requirements

Most courses and programmes have specific entry requirements in addition to the general requirements. These are often linked to the area of study. For example, an economics course may require a higher level of upper secondary school mathematics.

These specific requirements are outlined in the individual course and programme descriptions found on the university’s website. You can find a link to these description pages from both your search results and your application at
