We have Bachelor’s programmes with many different specialisations. A Bachelor’s programme is a three-year programme, and you do not need to have studied at a university college or university beforehand.

Not all our programmes are open for admissions every year. This means that our application periods vary.
The application period is usually over a period of two months. Our Bachelor’s programmes start in the autumn semester, and the final date for applications is usually in January of the same year. You will usually need to send in various documents and materials when you apply, so you should expect to make some preparations for your application.
In order to apply (be eligible) you must have completed upper secondary school with complete final school grades. If you do not have these qualifications you can still apply, but need to show that you have knowledge that corresponds to a Swedish upper secondary school diploma. It is very important that you are proficient in Swedish and English, that’s to say the languages that the programmes are taught in. Some of the programmes are taught in English, and Swedish language skills are not required for these. If you do not have the upper secondary school qualifications required, but nonetheless master the languages, you can sit a language test before applying to show your proficiency.
We usually have more applicants than places on our study programmes. Applicants accepted onto our programmes are selected on the basis of samples of their work that are submitted to us as well as assessments on site at the university. For example, you will be set tasks to solve or will take part in test lessons within the field of the study programme. The form of the assessments depends on the programme.
Student finance and tuition fees
During a Bachelor’s programme you study courses full time for six semesters in Stockholm. You have time off from your studies during the summer. It is possible to apply for financial aid for these studies (studiestöd in Swedish). You can read more about this on CSN's website. Studying a Bachelor’s programme is free of charge if you are a Swedish or EU citizen or if you have a permit to reside in Sweden for a purpose other than studying. Although tuition fees are payable by other students.The applicable tuition fees are stated on the webpages of the respective study programmes.
