If there are more applicants who fulfil the entry requirements for a course or a programme than there are places, a selection must be made from among the applicants.


This selection is based on things such as grades from adult education college, the Swedish Scholastic Aptitude Test and credits, and it is possible to belong to several groups. Only those credits that you have completed by the deadline for applications are considered when the selection is made. Your tariff may be your final school grades, Swedish Scholastic Aptitude Test result or number of credits. If two or more applicants for a particular option have the same tariff, the places will be awarded by the drawing of lots.

If the course is offered both as part of a programme and as a self-contained course, at least 10 per cent of the places will be reserved for applicants for the self-contained course.Late application for a course or programme follows the same procedure as for an application by the deadline. If you make a late application, you will be placed after all those who applied by the deadline. Your application will then be ranked by the date on which it was received. You can find out more about the allocation of places and selection at and in SLU’s admission regulations.
