University Admissions is the national online application service which handles admissions to universities in Sweden. It is an independent agency not related to the Swedish Institute (SI). The eligibility and application procedure for SI scholarships and for university admissions are different.
Only the master’s programmes that are in the list of master’s programmes are eligible for SISS.
Once you have submitted your application to the master’s programme(s) at universityadmissions.se, you will get a personal application number consisting of seven or eight digits. Save the number as you will need it when applying to SISS.
1 February 2018: deadline for receipt of application fee and supporting documents that are required by University Admissions. The application fee is non-refundable.
If you missed the deadlines or failed to follow the application procedure at University Admissions, you will not be eligible for an SI scholarship.
