When the programme is open for application you apply through our web-based application system by clicking on the "Apply here"-button on this page.
Start your application early! Don’t delay in submitting your application! You may run into trouble if you wait until the last day and your internet connection happens to be down, or you find that your files are in the wrong format. You will not be able to apply once the last date for applications has passed. Keep in mind that your application has to be turned in by 23.59 (Swedish time).
When you have entered the system:
1. Register by filling in your name and e-mail address. We will use this e-mail address to communicate with you through MyNetwork. If you change your e-mail address, please update your profile. Please also check your spam folder.
2. Fill in your personal data. If you are not a Swedish citizen, you should state your date of birth and upload a copy of your passport or national identity card.
3. Fill in the application form and upload the required documents
Before uploading your documents, they must be prepared as follows:
• You must scan your original documents, not copies. If the document is in colour, scan it in colour.
• All documents that are in the same category (for example transcripts and diploma copies) must be scanned into ONE file. There are programmes on the internet that can help you with this.
• Check your scan to see that everything on the original document can be read on the scan, including text, stamps, numbers, etc. If it can't be read when it's uploaded, it cannot be accepted.
• We do not recommend that applicants take photos of their documents. The quality is not at a level where we can guarantee we can accept the document in that format.
• All files must be in PDF-format to be accepted for uploading.
Please name the file with content and your name for example: CVAnnaSmith.
