When to apply for master's studies

Applying for a master's programme can take some time, so we recommend that you start well in advance. The application period is 16 October - 15 January for international master's programmes that start in August 2018. All applications must be made online, through the University Admissions website.

Late applications

Some programmes allow late applications after the deadline has passed. Programmes for which admission is still open have an “Add” button next to the title. However, just because a programme is still open it does not necessarily mean that places are still available.

Submitting a late application and being eligible for a programme does not guarantee a place. Your chances of being accepted depend on the number of students who applied before the deadline and accepted their place. Please note that late applications do not entitle you to apply for a scholarship.

Find out what programmes you can still apply for check your  programmes webpage to see if the ''Apply'' button is still live or use the search function through the University Admissions website.

For students from Sweden and EU/EES countries: Some of our master's programmes are open for application in a second admission round. Please see the webpage for each programme.
