Hello all,

Let's discuss here regarding the applications process and admission.
Where you applied to? Have you received any rating?

I have applied for:

1. Lulea - In Progress
2. Stockholm - In Progress

It's kinda early but let's wait together and discuss the process that is taking place. I am waiting to hear from all of you.

Hi! Yes, this a good idea and it helps with the waiting biggrin.gif

I have applied at 3 universities:

1) Lund- In progress
2) Umea- In progress
3) Halmstad- Unqualified. Since they reviewed applications early and my TOEFL score wasn't (and still isn't) in yet.
Speaking of the TOEFL -I asked in another post but haven't gotten any replies- how long did your score reports take to reach admissions?

How did Halmstad unqualify you so quick?!

I also have 3 choices, first is Uppsala - Language Technology, second is Gothenburg, same programme and third one is Gothenburg and it's Ancient and Medieval Philology. Hope I make it to Uppsala :/

Very quick rejection. Lets hope for the best regarding the other Unis. It seems that we may have an answer before March. Regarding English, it wasnt necessary for me to take a TOEFL exam since the teaching language of the bachelor degree was English and this fulfills the requirement of the Unis.

They sent me an e-mail explaining. It is not a rejection, they said it just means they have reviewed my application and the proof of English was missing. So as soon as anything new is uploaded they will be notified and review my application again.
I just hope my score makes it there in time or it will be the same for all the universities sad.gif

Good luck with your applications, the both of you!

Did the qualification and your merit scores come in, like, today? Because the application deadline was yesterday and the website says that they're only gonna review applications after the document deadline is up

Well Students,

Good to see you applicants gathered and discussing about who got admitted.
Well my first priority is Master in sustainable development, university of uppsala and guess what the total number of applicants this year has reached to 997 (almost 1000). I dont even know how universities make their selections on but anyways I wish you all a success...

Regards

Hello,

Through UHR website.
+ there is detailed list of applicants and what would be the admission points so you can lightly have an idea by looking at your programe your chances of being admitted.
Though there is no detailed information in any of website that gives you how students get admitted. Is it gpa or supporting docs? but by going through swedish HEC indexes, I have come to a point which may be proved wrong (in the end it would be just an opinion). The admissions are highly based off of a complete appraisal of your application to a programe (not just how good are you in grades or english) and the most important factor is your credits. The academic credits you have for req. courses and overall higher education credits that you have with your degree provided within your country by your respective HE bodies. That will surely make your application strong if you have higher credits than the rest of the applicants.

If anyone else know something for sure, feel free to add the information. we surely all are curious and need a place somewhere in time smile.gif

By saying UHR website you mean universityadmissions.se? Because I cannot find this information somewhere in the site.
