One Application: Sweden is unique in that it has a coordinated admissions system. It means that you can apply for Swedish courses and programs at all universities on the same application at www.universityadmissions.se
One set of supporting documents: Students must submit documentation in support of their application. These documents can include upper secondary school transcripts, university transcripts, and English test results. The documents you upload or send into University Admissions in Sweden are scanned into our electronic admissions system. In that way, no matter where an admissions officer is in Sweden, they can bring up your record and look at all your documents and your application information.
Application review: Your application will be registered and checked in several steps and by different institutions. Because of the number of requests, this process can take some time.
Reply online – Second round: If you applied for the second round for the autumn or spring semester (application deadlines 15 April and 15 October), you would be required to reply online to your first Notification of Selection Results.
Residence Permit for Studying in Sweden:
Students from a non-European Union (EU) or non-European Economic Area (EEA) country require a residence permit to study in Sweden for longer than three months. The easiest and fastest way to apply for a residence permit is by using the online application at the Swedish Migration Agency’s website. After completing the form, students are called for an interview at the Swedish embassy or consulate in their native country or another country where they live permanently. Students who are unable to apply online can apply at their nearest Swedish embassy or consulate.

There are specific criteria students must meet to receive a resident permit for studies. One rule related to education is that a student must be admitted to a course or a program at a Swedish university. Suppose you are preliminarily offered a place but have not finalized your place by paying the first tuition fee installment. In that case, you are not considered admitted, and you cannot be granted a residence permit. The place or places you have been offered on your Notification of Selection Results are considered preliminary until you have paid the first installment of the tuition fee. Therefore, you must pay the first installment of your tuition fee as soon as possible. Your university will notify the Swedish Migration Agency when your offer of admission is finalized.
If you are going to stay in Sweden for more than one year, you are generally required to register in the Swedish Population Register. Make sure your residence permit is valid for at least one year. You can register by going to one of the offices of the Swedish Tax Agency. By doing this you also get a Swedish personal identity number – a “personnummer”
