Guten tag, bonjour, ciao! Sweden is a land of many languages, so take your pick on how you’d like to say hello! The Swedish outdoors – with its breathtaking Alps, wildflowers, and crystal-blue lakes – seem to be straight out of a storybook. Hike along the country’s snow-peaked mountains in the summer and hear the sound of cowbells lining its quaint walking paths.

Most Swedish speak French or German, but Italian and Romansh are also national languages. There are 10 million people in Sweden, of whom about 2 million are under the age of 18. Eighty-five percent of them live in cities. Sweden is a very multicultural country: 15 per cent of Swedish were born in another country, while about one in five children in Sweden has a family with roots in another country.

According to Statistics Sweden, 782 833 people in the year 2015 in Sweden were foreign citizens. They are very used to the fika culture: time to time coffee breaks that help you socialize with your coworkers and mates. They have a “Lagom” lifestyle that is similar to perfect. No little less, no little more.

Choose to study in Sweden, and you will find yourself in a nation which has always punched well above its weight. From being the center of an empire in the 17th century, to being the home and birthplace of the Nobel Prize, its influence has long spread well beyond its borders, despite the fact that its total population is no bigger than a large city. Swedish businesses such as Ikea and Volvo are known around the world, and its contributions to popular culture range from bouffant-haired 70s pop aristocrats ABBA to the groundbreaking films of director Ingmar Bergman.

Modern-day Sweden is known for its sense of social justice and fairness. It has the highest level of wealth equality in the world, one of the world’s lowest gender pay gaps, publically funded healthcare for all, and equal rights for homosexual and heterosexual couples. Add on striking northern European beauty, and free tuition for EU students (fees for non-EU students were introduced recently), and the appeal of studying in Sweden is pretty strong.

Swedish universities offer degree programmes according to the European standard. This includes bachelor’s, master’s and PhD programmes.

Bachelor’s programmes, also known as undergraduate programmes, take place after upper secondary school (high school) and are usually three years long (180 ECTS credits).

Master’s programmes, also known as graduate programmes, build upon the knowledge developed during bachelor’s-level studies and can be one or two years long (60 or 120 ECTS credits).

PhD programmes, also known as doctoral programmes, are research degrees involving several years of work toward a dissertation. The duration and setup of PhD programmes in Sweden vary between universities; see PhD programmes for more details.

Lund University

Lund University is one of the oldest and most prestigious universities in Northern Europe, and ranks joint 78th in the world. With a large student body of 42,000, students make up almost half the population of the city of Lund, 20% of which are from outside Sweden. The university cooperates with 600 universities in over 70 countries, both in research and in student exchange programs such as Erasmus.

KTH, Royal Institute of Technology

KTH is Sweden’s largest, oldest and most international polytechnic university and considered one of the best in Europe. Located in the capital, Stockholm, it currently ranks joint 98th in the world, provides a third of Sweden’s research and engineering education, and has consistently ranked as one of the top 40 universities for engineering and technology subjects.

Uppsala University

Founded in 1477, Uppsala University is the oldest university in both Sweden and all the Nordic countries. It ranks 112th in the QS World University Rankings 2018 and has 43,591 students enrolled. The university’s long history of prestigious education makes it a member of the Coimbra Group, an association of longstanding institutions of a high international standard.

Chalmers University of Technology

Located in Gothenburg, Chalmers University of Technology is another very strong polytechnic university, ranked 133rd in the world overall and within the top 100 for engineering and technology subjects. Over a third of students enrolled on master’s programs at Chalmers are international, which may be partly due to the fact all master’s courses are taught in English.

Stockholm University

Stockholm University is the Swedish capital’s state university and is currently ranked joint 195th in the world. It’s one of Scandinavia’s largest universities, educating more than 70,000 students in four faculties. Stockholm University offers many programs in English and is currently ranked within the top 100 universities in the world for arts and humanities.

Other internationally ranked universities in Sweden include the University of Gothenburg (ranked joint 283rd), Linköping University (joint 287th) and Umeå University (338th). In addition, Sweden is home to a number of prestigious specialized institutions, including the medical-focused Karolinska Institute.

Another specialist institution is the Stockholm School of Economics, which offers a range of undergraduate and postgraduate business degrees and boasts a worldwide network of over 20,000 alumni.

Bachelor Degrees

In order to meet the general entry requirements for bachelor’s level studies, all students must:

  • have successfully completed their upper secondary (high school) education (post-16).
  • be able to demonstrate proficiency in English. The entry requirement for studies at the bachelor’s level in Sweden is the equivalent of the Swedish upper secondary course English 6/English B. See English Language Requirements.

For students who received their final school grades after 31 December 2009, there is an additional entry requirement for mathematics as follows:

  • The student must have successfully completed courses in mathematics to reach the level of the Swedish courses Mathematics 1a, 1b or 1c / Mathematics A (approximately 10 years of mathematics studies).


Upper secondary school and university qualifications

If you have previous university studies, you must submit your upper secondary (high school) qualifications in addition to your university qualifications. For some courses and programs, students are only offered places based on their upper secondary qualifications and NOT on their university qualifications.

Master Degrees

To meet the entry requirements for master’s level (second cycle or graduate) studies, you must:

  • have been awarded a Bachelor’s degree (equivalent to a Swedish Candidate) from an internationally recognized university.
  • be able to demonstrate proficiency in English. You can do this by means of an internationally recognized test, such as TOEFL, IELTS, etc. Previous upper secondary studies or university studies completed in some countries can also meet the requirement. Check the website of the university where you would like to study for more information about language requirements as they determine what level is required for Master’s course and program.


PhD Programs

Generally speaking, to be admitted to a PhD program, you must:

  • Hold a university degree equivalent to a bachelor’s degree or higher with a focus in the same subject as the intended field of study. In most cases, a master’s degree is required. Previous studies must have included a degree thesis presenting the results of independent research.
  • Have a good command of English. Skills in Swedish are also important in some subjects where lectures and seminars are conducted in Swedish.

Further specific admission requirements are set by the department that has advertised the position.
