How to apply

We guide you through the steps you need to take in order to study in Sweden. Read up on the things you need to consider before choosing the education that is right for you.

Trying to understand Sweden’s higher education system can seem daunting at first. We have collected some basic information about studying at Swedish universities that international students don’t automatically know.

As a foreign student, different options are open to you depending on the degree level you would like to study at: undergraduate (as an exchange student or free mover); as a master’s candidate, or at the doctoral level. Application procedures are explained for each level.

Most likely you will study one of the 600 English-language degree programs, but if your Swedish is fluent, Swedish courses are open to you as well, giving you even greater choice.

You may just have finished with your studies, in which case you may be looking for a traineeship position. Or else you may be in a position to buy contract training (commissioned education) for your company or organization.
