Documents to upload:

Applicants from non-EU, EEA-country, or Switzerland, need to pay application fee for higher education in Sweden, and if admitted a tuition fee. If you are a citizen in an EU, EEA-country, or Switzerland, you do not have to pay application or tuition fees. In order to find out which group you belong to, you need to show your citizenship. Therefore, you must upload a copy of your passport/valid national identity card.
If you have a Swedish civic registration number, or Swedish citizenship, you do not need to upload a copy of your passport. But don't forget to state your Swedish civic registration number when you fill in your personal data.

You will be asked in your application to explain why you think that you will cope with the studies even though you do not fulfill the general and/or specific entry requirements. You also need to upload signed documents/certificates that confirm your merits/experiences that you refer to in your letter.
