General Entry Requirements

Master Programme Applicants

For applicants to a master programme in Sweden, the general entry requirements are:

  • You hold a bachelor degree (equivalent to a Swedish bachelor degree) or higher from an internationally recognized university
  • You can demonstrate proficiency in English typically through an international test such as TOEFL or IELTS, where a minimum score (90 on the IBT or 6.5 with no band less than 6.0 on the IELTS) is required. Many students are exempt from taking these tests if they fulfill certain requirements. More information about the English language requirements and language test exemption can be found on university admissions.se.

Bachelor Programme Applicants

For applicants to a bachelor programme in Sweden, the general eligibility requirements are:

  • You have completed upper-secondary school (equivalent to Swedish upper-secondary school).
  • You can demonstrate proficiency in English typically through an international test such as TOEFL or IELTS, where a minimum score (90 on the IBT or 6.5 with no band less than 6.0 on the IELTS) is required. Many students are exempt from taking these tests if they fulfil certain requirements. More information about the English language requirements and language test exemption can be found on university admissions.se.

Course Package/Course Applicants

For applicants to a course package/individual courses in Sweden, the general eligibility requirements are:

  • You have completed upper-secondary school (equivalent to Swedish upper-secondary school).
  • You can demonstrate proficiency in English.

While most course packages/courses require English proficiency equivalent to a 90 on the Internet Based TOEFL or a 6.5 on the Academic IELTS, the English for Academic Purposes course package for international students at DU has a lower requirement.

Specific Entry Requirements

  • Visit the webpage of the specific programme, course or course package to learn about its specific entry requirements. Specific eligibility requirements are typically determined by a review of the academic transcripts (from previous university or upper-secondary school studies) that you submit as part of your application.

Eligibility (Being Qualified) Does Not Equal Admission

You may be eligible for studies at DU yet not be admitted. The two most common reasons for this are:

  • You were admitted to a course/programme that you ranked in a higher position in your online application.
  • There were more eligible applicants than places in the course/programme.

More detailed information can be found on universityadmissions.se and in the General Administrative Regulations for Students at Dalarna University. If you do not fulfil the entry requirements, you can apply to DU for an assessment of your prior learning.
