Admission Timeline

Sweden follows a centralized admission process for applications to undergraduate courses. The Swedish Council for Higher Education manages this process where you can apply on either of two websites - Antagning.se or Universityadmissions.se – depending on whether you wish to apply for a Swedish-medium or an English-medium course.

Students not part of the EU/EEA and Switzerland must pay a non-refundable processing fee of 900 SEK (approx. INR 7000) to send their applications. Additional costs include the application fees for English language proficiency tests like the IELTS/TOEFL/PTE, which are approximately INR 15,500.

Sweden follows the centralized admission process for Master’s courses as well. So, similar to the application process for UG courses, you can apply to your desired universities and programs via Antagning.se for Swedish or Universityadmissions.se for English-medium programs.

Thanks to the centralized admission process, you must pay a non-refundable fee of 900 SEK (approx. INR 7000) to apply to multiple programs. Additionally, you must pay for the language proficiency tests (approx. INR 15,500) and other entrance tests as required by the institute. However, if you have studied for your Bachelor's degree in an English medium university, you would be exempted from an English language proficiency test for Engineering, Computer science, Medicine, Pharmacy, Natural sciences and Technology.

For applying to MBA courses in Sweden, you can use the centralized admission system or apply directly to the university’s official website. Universityadmissions.se allows you to apply to multiple MBA programs at once. However, you must send multiple applications for each program if you apply directly.

The application fee for applying to MBA programs via Universityadmissions.se is 900 SEK (approx. INR 7000). Additionally, you must pay the GMAT/GRE fees of USD 250 (approx. INR 20,000) if required and the TOEFL/IELTS exam fee, which is approximately INR 15,500. However, it is not compulsory to submit GMAT scores since many institutes in Sweden have waived off this particular criterion.
