If you are an incoming exchange student, see the Incoming Exchange Students webpage for information on how to apply.
How To Apply
Please note: Dalarna University sometimes publishes the same course or programme in both the First and Second application period. Therefore you may see two similar programmes listed at the University Admissions websites. Please note that they have different application deadlines and notification dates. Read about the application rounds on universityadmission.se.
1. Create a User Account
To apply, you first need to create a user account on universityadmissions.se. If you have previously applied on universityadmissions.se, then you already have an account and should use this. You can read about reapplying using a previously created account here.
2. Select, Prioritise and Submit
Select and prioritise the programmes you wish to apply to; next, submit your application.
Remember, you can only be admitted to one programme; therefore, be sure to list the one you are most interested in as your first choice. You can be accepted to take a maximum of 45 credits per term. (Note, full-time studies are 30 credits.)
3. Pay the Application Fee or Show Citizenship Status
- There is no application fee (or study fees) for EU/EEA citizens and Swedish residents: you do, however, need to verify your citizenship status by uploading approved ID (for example, passport identity page).
- All other applicants need to pay the application fee (900 SEK): see payment instructions.
You can find more detailed information about whether or not you are required to pay fees on universityadmissions.se.
4. Submit Supporting Documents
Your supporting documents are reviewed to assess your eligibility. The universityadmissions.se website lists the documents that you need to submit for review.
In some instances, you may not be allowed to upload your documents: this depends on the country where you received your education. See the country-specific information for applicants to programmes/courses
If you are unable to upload your documents, you can post them to:
University Admissions in Sweden
SE-106 53 Stockholm
5. Check your application regularly
We recommend that you regularly log in to your universityadmissions.se user account to check your application for updated information.
During the assessment process, your application will be reviewed in terms of entry requirements for the programme you have applied to. You may see status updates to your application such as "not processed", "in progress", "unqualified" or "qualified". Remember that the assessment process is ongoing, and your status can therefore change multiple times. An "unqualified" status may simply indicate that the documents you submitted have yet to be assessed.
After the deadline, most programmes do remain open for late applications: this is indicated by an "Add" button where they are listed on universityadmissions.se.
Please note: Late applications are processed only when time permits and after all the applications that arrived before the deadline have been processed. Your admission chances depend on the number of applicants before the deadline and the number that then accept their place in the course/programme.
- More information on late applications can be found on universityadmissions.se.
If you are deleted from a course/programme because you were accepted into a course/programme that you prioritised higher in your list of choices or because you forgot to accept your place, you can reapply but only if the alternative is still open for application.
