We will take measures according to the number of participants and the COVID-19 pandemic situation in August.

This is usually proven by showing a physical copy of your degree certificate or diploma to your programme coordinator at registration on the first day of classes.

However, due to the current situation with Covid-19, we instead ask that you upload your diploma and complete transcript to your account at Universityadmissions.se as soon as you’ve received them.

You will not be able to register for your programme until your Bachelor’s degree has been verified. In addition to this, please also bring the documents to Sweden when you arrive here.
