The Local _ Studying _ Planning to apply to a University?

Posted by: Puffin 14.Feb.2011, 05:57 PM

Don't forget that the final application date för the SweSAT University Entrance test - Högskleprovet - is midnight February 15th

If you are planning to do a bachelor programme it means that your application has 2 chances of being accepted as around 30-40% of places are allocated on the basis of of the test results

To get a degree in worthlessnes ?

Posted by: Meatball 23.Feb.2011, 08:12 PM

Puffin, wanted to ask you, you mentioned on another thread somewhere about dispensation...is that Reell kompetens you are talking about? Does anyone ever get accepted on Reell kompetens and how is the best way on doing it..any tips? I am studying at Komvux and I am thorougly sick of it and I still need about 700 or 800 points for a slutbetyg. I don't have behorighet from my high school certificate...ps Please excuse blink.gif my swedish english blandning. I tried the högskoleprovet once but my Swedish is not that fantastic and neither is my maths...

Thanx

Posted by: Puffin 24.Feb.2011, 02:33 PM

Hmmm - not sure that reel kompetens will really help you that much

Reel competence is a way for you to show that you have the equivelent of academic qualifications through other means such as work experience, volunteer work, time spend abroad etc - for example you might not have Engelska B but can show that you speak fluent English from a year spent in the UK etc/or perhaps you have learned maths from a different route such as construction/boat building etc

However it is not designed as a way in for people who are weak in certain subjects - just because you are struggling with maths and Swedish does not mean that reel kompetens will be an easier route as the University can still call you to take a test orbe interviewed as they will want to be sure that you can keep up with the demands of the course

Also the reel kompetens only gives you basic eligibility and not a grade - so for competitve courses they recommend that you take Högskoleprovet - however this is hard if you are struggling with swedish and maths

I heard somewhere that there are some Free Masters degree programs that one can have in Sweden. I'm considering applying for a free masters degree if I find a suitable one, because in UK are too expensive.

Can you recommend me a university for that purpose?

Posted by: Puffin 14.Mar.2011, 12:32 PM

All Masters programmes are free to EU citizens - you will need money for your living expenses though

Check out websites as around 80-90% of Masters courses are taught in English - you might want to be wary of some of the small regional colleges (the ones that use the term Högskola/University college instead of University) as some of these have rather poor reputations (like South Bank and Luton in the UK)

Posted by: Natalie St 14.Mar.2011, 01:16 PM

Thanks, Puffin. I'll check this out.

Also how about housing/job finding. How much do I need to pay for hiring a place to live. I work in IT sector (web design), is it easy to find a job in this sector and how much would I be paid on average?

Posted by: Puffin 14.Mar.2011, 03:06 PM

Housing depends on which Uni you choose - Stockholm is dire though - generally if you get a student room/flat the average is around 3000-4000 kr per month - private lets may be more

Jobs will be hard to find - especially one that will allow flexibility around your course programme - Swedish unis are in session 40 weeks per year and are meant to follow standard business practice of setting study work for 40 hours per week - plus lectures and many courses require a paper each week and an examined seminar - exams and/or examined essays at the end of each module - ie every 5-10 weeks

Is it still the case that masters degree courses are free for foreigners as well? I'm here on a work and residence permit and my partner (non-EU) would like to do her masters degree. Can someone confirm this? thanks

Oh yea, my partner also has a valid work and residence permit, just FYI. thanks

Posted by: mendesmeirelles 1.Apr.2011, 05:35 PM

Unfortunately,now It's Free only to EU Citizens.Please check at Studera.nu ,is the official source of information about higher education in Sweden.You should do a deep research on the website,maybe there is a way for you to skip tuition fees.

Posted by: jbat 1.Apr.2011, 07:30 PM

fridae..

don´t worry, it is free if you have valid work and residence permit here even if you are non EU citizen.

check studera for more detail...

Yes - if you have a valid family tiesresidence permit or work permit then you are unlikely to pay fees - check out the details of who is exempt on Studera

I am an American military academy graduate looking for some help on the essentials of getting a graduate degree in Sweden. I sail in the merchant marine so employment and finances I can figure out on my own. Is there some kind of student visa available to foreigners? Are there any universities known for computer engineering programs? Lastly, is it common to see foreign students studying there or are people like me going to be few and far between? Thanks in advance for the advice.

For the past few years Sweden has had huge numbers of overseas students which is the reason that most Masters programmes are taught in English whereas bachelors are taught in Swedish

However last year the numbers peaked as it was the final year of free tuition - this year the applications have crashed somewhat as most people tried to get in last year and avoid fees - so I doubt that you will be unusual but may be not as many overseas candidates as are on the current courses

Hello every one! I am planning to start studying at one of the universities in Stockholm Sweden, and I was looking for many times on the Swedish websites for petroleum engineering department and sadly I couldn't find any in my search results. I believe that there must be such programme to study for students who just finished secondary school here in sweden. But i can not find one yet. Is there some one who has samilar interest maybe, that can kindly provide me with some information leads to a clue about this. Thanks

Posted by: Puffin 11.Nov.2011, 12:47 AM

I believe that petroleum engineering in Sweden is usually a sub-discipline within the department of chemical engineering and/or technology - you need to search kemiingenör or kemiteknik program - when I did a quick search the places that came up were not in Stockholm but in Karlstad and Chalmers (Gothenburg) - although KT H in Stockholm has chemical engineering from my quick read through it seems more focussed on medical/drug production and wood/paper products

All programmes require fluency in Swedish

Posted by: hatim 13.Nov.2011, 11:15 PM

Computer Science universities

Well you cannot go wrong with KTH and Chalmers. Upsalla has a good program as well. Being a Chalmers graduate my self I would not consider any thing other than Chalmers or KTH at the moment. Gothenburg is easier for students but not the best when it comes to further jobs.

I heard that education is free in Sweden (boy that is super nice) but will the state help you with your visa if you get in? Also, is there any aid from the university to help you get settled (find a home, job etc) ?

If you are from an EU/EEA country the education is free. You must apply and be accepted. You must apply for a student visa and show you have 73000sek per year of study in your bank account. Two year course, 150,000sek. Almost all courses at the undergraduate level are taught in Swedish.so you must be nearly fluent. No financial help is available. Good luck.

Education is free for EU citzens but non-EU citizens are required to pay tuition since 2011

When you have a degree course offer you are required to show that you can support yourself you need to show at least 7300 per month for each year of study ie you are required to have funds avaible as few students find work to support their living expenses
- 73000kr for a 1 year course
- 146,000kt for 2 year
- 219,000 for 3 years

There are certain scholarships available for study but most are focussed on developing countries
http://www.si.se/English/Navigation/Scholarships-and-exchanges/

Swedish student aid is only available to those that have worked or been resident for 2 years prior to starting University

Posted by: johnjohn 20.Jan.2012, 04:19 PM

7300 per month not per week. They like to see a set sum amount in the bank or a guaranteed income.

Posted by: Puffin 20.Jan.2012, 04:34 PM

QUOTE (Wordtothewise @ 20.Jan.2012, 04:12 PM) *
What if you are getting a weekly allowance from your home country? Would that make a difference? The allowance I could get would be less than 7,300kr a week but not by much. Well by about 500kr.

because they run out of money
Mostly they want to see all of the money in advance as MV are strict these days as a result of people comming with promises of financial support from friends and relatives that never materialised - every year students have to return home without their degree

You would need to have documentary proof of this and a letter from an official source that you would continue to get it when living abroad *if* they accept it

Posted by: Puffin 20.Jan.2012, 07:08 PM

Some get sponsorship, have savings from previous jobs, take out loans or have rich parents - there are also certain scholarships available

It is tougher these days to finance university study from outside the EU

Posted by: Puffin 20.Jan.2012, 09:24 PM

QUOTE (Wordtothewise @ 20.Jan.2012, 08:30 PM) *
Yes, very hard I'd say.
Do you have to apply for the student permit straight away after receiving notice that you've been accepted?


Well you need to have the permit before arriving in Sweden and the timetable is tight - people delay risk not having their petmit in time and missing the start of the course

QUOTE
Cause I think I can make 73,000 SEK for the one year courses easy enough but 146,000 SEK for a two year course would be tricky. I'll just forget about 3 year courses.

Also, is it illegal to have 146,000 in your account for when they check and then not have it there the next day? cool.gif


Well this is what some people do - however you need to thing about how you are going to pay bills - you can't rely on getting a job here

Posted by: Puffin 23.Jan.2012, 09:03 PM

QUOTE (Wordtothewise @ 23.Jan.2012, 07:44 PM) *
Oh yes for sure.
Is the 7,300 SEK per month that they say you need to live on accurate? Are you comfortable on that amount or is it a struggle? Oh I haven't applied to any colleges in Stockholm probobly Gothenberg or further south (if that makes any difference to costs).

The big issue is what you can rent for - some cities have rooms easily available in student corridors of 1500-2000 kr whereas in others you will be lucky to find somewhere for 3500-4000kr

I know that some students get by on around 5000-6000kr/month - t depends though whether you want to travel and eat out etc

QUOTE
I know I ask you a lot of questions but just one more, you say you can't rely on getting a job there. Even part time jobs are hard to get? I suppose especially if you have no Swedish.

Very tough to get jobs in most student towns - at best it might be part time work - but won't get you anywhere near paying all bills and giving time to study full time - but there are a lot of Swedes chasing these jobs

Posted by: Puffin 23.Jan.2012, 10:39 PM

the cheap rooms are very very rare these days - you will not find any in Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmö - most would be for the small regional colleges that offer a housing guarantee - but not always the most exciting places to study

Posted by: Puffin 24.Jan.2012, 09:07 AM

This is what you want!! Just saw this article about an experimental detached student property of 8.8kvm that has been built in Lund - you can see the pictures on the slide show
http://www.aftonbladet.se/nyheter/article14254907.ab

However the controversy over this property and the difficulties that they had building it - the Swedish housing authority Boverket puts so many conditions on student properties that it is hard to build new ones - many older smaller rooms and studio apartments don't meet the crietera that new ones must meet today in terms of size and access

Posted by: Puffin 24.Jan.2012, 11:37 AM

Obviously not so "äktaSvensk" (genuine Swede) if you don't know that fewer than 30% of places are allocated according to the entrance exam and that the entrance exam is not compulsory

- it is gymnasiet grades that are most important thing and these can be from Sweden or abroad

Obviously if the course is taught in Swedish you will need Svenska B/TISUS but not otherwise

Posted by: Puffin 24.Jan.2012, 01:09 PM

Well not for international courses taught in English - like the majority of Master's courses

Most people on these boards don't take Högskoleprov at all - they apply in the category of overseas high school grades using their grades from their own country translated by VHS/Studera

I mean obviously if you are fluent then it makes sense to apply in both the grades and the SweSAT categories - but your post made it sound like everyone takes the test

Posted by: Puffin 24.Jan.2012, 01:20 PM

LOL

Now you're making no sense cool.gif

If you are accepted to an English speaking course there are no tests in Swedish - a course advertised with English as "undervisningsspråk" doesn't suddenly decide to run clases in Swedish

yeah, this still does my head in. should we require all parking spots be wheelchair accessible (extra wide spaces) and all bus and airplane and cinema seats too? wouldn't it make more sense to allocate a percentage of all new builds for student housing meet the accessibility requirements and mark those prioritized to students with requirements?

if you want to live in Sweden, you should be able to speak Swedish. It is wholly disrespectful not to bother picking up the language,

No, you simply have a complex which prevents you from understanding common logic. Not all masters courses are in English. Furthermore, if you want to live in Sweden, you should be able to speak Swedish. It is wholly disrespectful not to bother picking up the language, if that is what you are advocating.


LOL - now you're trying to change the subject away from the strange assertions that you previously made that everyone must expect to be tested in Swedish cool.gif

No not all Masters courses are in English but around 70%+ are in English which do not require any knowledge of Swedish as all literature, lectures, seminars, exams, papers, dissertations are in English

If on the other hand you apply for a course taught in Swedish - then strangely enough you are required to speak Swedish and must produce your certifcate in Svenska B or TISUS - although you do have certain rights to write exams and essays in Nordic languages or English - but if you enforce your right to write in icelandic it may take your department a while to find an examiner wink.gif

It is of course a different moral issue as to whethe you should learn Swedish as an international student - a lot depends on how long you intend to stay

Posted by: Ginni 25.Jan.2012, 01:26 PM

I have question regarding English eligibility. I am from India and have moved to Sweden a while ago. I want to apply for Master courses. But the issue is that VHS has rated my high school English as Engelska A. Though the language of instruction in the Universities are English but we didn't had English as a subject and its not stated on the mark-sheets that
language of instruction was English. Plus i have not taken TOFEL or ILETS. What should i do in this case?? Does anyone have an idea??? And if i take Engelska B exam will that help???

Thanks in Advance!!

Posted by: Puffin 25.Jan.2012, 05:40 PM

If you are applying from outside Sweden then you need to take the TOEFL or IELTS if your course requires Engelska B

If you are already in Sweden then you can take Engelska B at komvux - you can either take the course for a whole term OR you can "tentera" by paying a fee and taking the test

Posted by: Ginni 25.Jan.2012, 06:34 PM

Thanks for reply Puffin.
If I appear now for exam then I don't think it will get the result of Komvux by Feb 1st which is last day for sending the result. Is there any way to send this English requirement a little later , is it possible to discuss this with some administrator at university ?

Posted by: Puffin 25.Jan.2012, 06:38 PM

It's definitely possible if your local komvux is flexible - you could have the result by Friday - but not all work in that way

I assume though you are applying from outside of Sweden as an international student who will need a visa? as if you are in Sweden you usually have until april and can submit new results until June

Posted by: Ginni 25.Jan.2012, 07:27 PM

I am applying from Stockholm, Sweden.
Q1. For applying from Sweden I was under impression that uptil April is the date for Swedish Citizen but I have PUT but not Swedish citizenship.

Moreover , I saw this point :-
https://www.antagning.se/en/All-you-need-to...h-requirements/
Students with a Bachelor's degree from a university where English is the only language of instruction, in accordance with the recommendations in the edition of the International Handbook of Universities that was current the year the degree was awarded

Q2.How can I check whether my university falls under this ?

Posted by: bobalong 19.Apr.2012, 10:20 AM

Puffin, I wondered if you knew the answer to this:

A neighbour friend of mine applied to do a summer course via distance learning. He did the Svenska A course and finished before Easter but has not heard about the result yet. He will sit the Svenska B exam next week and was told he will get the result of that on 18th June. Does this mean that he will get the result for the Svenska A on the same day?

Also he had a message that he has not supplied evidence of his Swedish therefore he is "obehörig" for the course he applied for which only starts at the end of June. Does this mean that he will not be offered a place even though he will only get the result on 18th June? Can he appeal by saying he will send the result later? Apparently he sent a mail to them but they have not replied.

I do not know what to say to him as he seems quite upset. I tried looking on the website for info but did not want to give him false info. I found info on normal courses but not for distance learning ones.

He shouls ask his school - schools can issue results whenever they want - unless the course is a course package when all results are are reported on the same day

way too late - many sommar courses have already started by 18 june - I think you have until the end of march to send in new results - the acceptance letters go out next week

he can apply for autumn term starting in august - last date to send in new results is june 21

Posted by: bobalong 19.Apr.2012, 02:10 PM

Thanks Puffin for the info I will tell him when he rings later. He has gone back to UK to see his folks so I guess he will have to ring the school from there. As far as I know he just took the two courses.
Not sure of the date of the summer course, he just said end of June. Guess he missed out this round.

That's life I guess.

Posted by: Puffin 19.Apr.2012, 02:13 PM

he could call the Uni and see if they are undersubscribed - sometimes they will allow a late application and let you bring the certificate in Day 1

Posted by: Mahmoud.Suleiman 16.Oct.2012, 12:06 PM

So a person from outside EU and with two years work permit can/can not enroll in university?
FREE OR NOT FREE THIS IS THE QUESTION!
Let's say I don't have the Swedish language qualifications required at the university, can I apply for studies in English language?
If yes, will they require a TOEFL or IELTS test results?
Am I restricted to certain studies or am I allowed to choose the field at my convenience?
If I am allowed to choose my studies am I required to prove prior degrees of education? I mean studies I've undertaken before moving to Sweden? any specific criteria ( curriculum ) that is a "must have" to be accepted? i.e. Mathematics for example?

An explanation will be highly appreciated. I really want to continue my education in Sweden but I've heard that since I do not have the citizenship I have to pay for my studies and even-more I'm not allowed to apply for Scholarships with my Upphållstillstånd och arbetstillstånd.

I really sound greedy asking all these question so excuse my ignorance.

Posted by: Yorkshireman 16.Oct.2012, 12:58 PM

There is nothing that says You cannot study when on a work permit. The question is whether You continue working or not and meet the requirements for the work permit itself.

In Sweden by law, if You have been working for the same employer for 6 months or more,You can also request "tjänsteledig" (free from work) for the duration of studies, and there are various provisions in that law where You job can be protected to a degree.

However, in Your case that would not be possible, since you would not be working and therefore no longer meet the work permit conditions.

So, the question is ... can you continue working, even if continuing education, given that you might just have to be at the course during working hours? Would your employer accept that?

You would not have to pay tuition fees, since you are not here on a student permit, though You still need to cover your own living costs.

Posted by: PrincessLea 9.Nov.2012, 03:41 PM

Puffin,

Wondering if you could help me with a couple of questions, I'll be returning to Sweden in January after living abroad since '96, mostly in Ireland. I'm hoping to study finance at either Lund or Malmo, what would be my best way of applying? I know Hogskoleprovet is the most common way of doing it, but having been out of the country for so long I don't think I'll do very well on it, my Swedish is somewhat poor and my knowledge of Sweden these days is almost non existing! I read something about Reel Kompetens? Or would I be able to actually use my Gymnasie betyg? I've also done a couple of certificate courses while in Ireland.

also, as I will have only just returned to the country, would I be able to get any form of study aid?

Really apreciate any advice you can give, many thanks!

Posted by: Tommzy 23.Dec.2012, 09:07 PM

Hej!
I'm from Ireland and I'm planning to move to Sweden after high school to do a batchelors degree in Political science though English in Stockholm University. I have applied through universityadmissions.se,

I'm wondering is that all I have to do to apply for the course or is there more to it such as sending teachers references and Results from exams like in UCAS? I have asked my further education guidance teacher but she has no experience to give when applying abroad.

Thanks,
Tommy

Posted by: nickachu 24.Dec.2012, 01:05 AM

You should call/email the department, or whoever is on the bottom of the webpage for the course asking if you need any additional documents. I'm in the process of applying for a Masters at Lulea, and all I needed was a copy of my transcript, a copy of my degree certificate (both authenticated by the uni) and a copy of my passport signed by a witness to show that it's real. If you don't have a Swedish Personal Number you'll need to send in a letter of intent I think, all the information you need will be on the Uni and the Uniadmissions websites. smile.gif

Edit: Ok I miss-read you! For a bachelors I have no idea! Email the course people and check the Universityadmissions.se website for information would be my best bet!

Nope, no Culinary Arts schools in Stockholm, though there are some elsewhere in Sweden. I would suggest you study at home and then come over and open a proper, high-end, Greek food restaurant. The food the Greek restaurants serve here is just awful unsure.gif .

Unless you have a very definite goal studying for a Masters will be a waste of time and will not help you in to the Swedish labour market. I would say that yrkeshogskolan is the way to go. Courses that aren't too long, that include work placements and are tailored for specific sectors of employment. They even have support programmes for people who's first language isn't Swedish.

Hej! I have been living abroad for much of my life, mostly in Australia, but I am a Swedish citizen. I am investigating the feasibility of doing a PhD in Sweden. I am a qualified psychologist in Australia and have completed a Masters degree in psychology. So, I would be looking to do research within Psychology (interested in Mindfulness and health psychology). I have a publication and pretty good grades, I'm working on another publication now. I can speak Swedish pretty well but my reading/writing skills are poor.

Can anyone offer any advice on what kind of scholarships & other income I could apply for? I would like to think that I could apply for the same benefits as Swedish local but not sure...

Also, are there any universities known for particularly good psychology schools/departments?

Study in Sweden is a comprehensive resource for information about higher education in Sweden. The official application period for master’s and bachelor’s degree programs starting Autumn 2014 opens December 2, and the application deadline is January 15, 2014. However, some universities are already opening the gates for applications today, October 17.

Hello,

I still have quite some time before I will start seriously applying for schools, but I am very interested in studying in Sweden. I have researched a few universities there, and I will be studying theater. Is it best for me to go to a J.C. or get a bachelors here in the US before applying for schools in Sweden? Also, is getting a higher education in Sweden very competitive for foreign students? Thank you smile.gif

I want to go to the unversity BUT i do not know very much the Swedish language , what shall i do?
Is there universities that teach with Another than the Swedish language ? If yes what shall i study ?
Help plz.

Posted by: Carl T 7.Aug.2014, 08:11 PM

Nikolaos: You can go to http://www.antagning.se to find programs or courses, but be warned that their search function is crap. If you search for "matematik" you'll find loads of irrelevant programs like grade school teacher and business administration. A better place to start may be http://www.studera.nu/ (see 'In English').

And for both you and 7/1: Typically, I think, bachelor courses/programs are largely taught in Swedish whereas masters courses/programs are geared towards a mix of locals and exchange students and therefore taught in English.

As for the question of what you should study, well, I think you should have some idea of what your previous education has prepared you for, what you'll be able to learn and what you want to work with. With that information in hand, you could contact a student counsellor at a relevant university department.

Hej,

I was wondering if anyone could comment on their time as a graduate student here. I'm from the US and just began grad school. I'm having a bit of a mixed experience.

Thanks.

Ive a good track record with no history of arrears.
Hope ill do the same in Chalmers.
the main intriguing thing i have is about will i get a job after completing my masters.
Ive come acroos many posts, student feedbacks...
all they say is ive returned home because i didnt find a job there though my credentials were good.
As an aspiring student i would be really thankful if anyone can tell me the chances of getting a job.
Im a mechanical engineer and im in interested mechanical fields and not in IT sectors.
awaiting for your reply guys!

In Belgium (and also many other countries) many studies at university are given in ENGLISH!!! Lectures...as well as study material.

Sure it used to be in Dutch or French...but nowadays more and more English is used.

I thought this was also the fact in Sweden?? Apparently I am mistaken.

Now I'm not an expert in either field, but from my understanding mechanical engineers are not in any particular demand in Sweden, while IT is in very high demand. I know an Indian guy who came here to study his masters at KTH and got employed at Ericsson before even graduating (but he worked in IT). But if mechanical engineers are in low demand (as I understand they are, but I could be wrong), you are likely to find it difficult finding a job, as an employer is likely to prefer a Swedish applicant with a good understanding of the language and culture over a foreign one (where he/she may also have to deal with arranging work-permits/visas etc.).

Either way, best of luck with your studies and future job endeavors.

Dear all
i have applied for a course in human right and role of law in umea university
for spring 2015.i have conditionally admitted in this course and got message from the university to apply for resident permit.
i did so, but the university did not bother to issue me fee receipt. i called then for that and they asked me to wait until specific date, since that date has been passed i email them 4. 5 time regarding this problem but no one bother to reply back. the starting date of my course is 19th January 2015.
here i want to know about the reason of such a behavior from university, is it any remedy available , what should i do now. senior member of this forum please come forward and help me to find the solution.

I have a question
I will move to Sweden soon and I think I can study.
Thing is that in my homecountry I finished highschool but didn't graduate due to one test that I didn't complete, so I don't have a high school diploma.
It's a bit too late to get my diploma before the date I leave.

How can I go about that in Sweden? I'm not exactly a kid either, I'm soon on my 30's.
Is there some kind of place to finish highschool? Or how do you enter university? I would like to know if I can study somehow smile.gif

Why on earth would anyone want to study in Sweden? The US and UK have more Nobel Prize winners teaching at their universities, then any other country combined.

Have you checked the price tag on the US universities lately? Besides, a lot of US schools are party schools where students pull an all nighter a night before the exam and go back to partying the next day. That's one expensive party to attend.

Are there any programs for foreigners who are keen on learning Swedish? Like summer schools perhaps? With some cultural immersion components? Not University opportunities for those who are already fluent in Swedish, but courses specifically designed to teach entry-level Swedish to language enthusiasts? Preferably for all ages (as I no longer qualify as a young adult).

For me, the most important thing in the university is the professors who teach there. I read a lot about the teaching staff before applying for admission to the university. If you haven't chosen a university, then I advise you to see the blogs of students who write a lot about their college life. Here https://booksrun.com/blog/top-college-blogs/ is a list of popular blogs. You can also find them for yourself. I know that many students are very worried about living conditions in different universities.



Hey Marmer,

Students from India or Pakistan with a Bachelor's degree (equivalent to a Swedish Kandidatexamen) in Engineering, Computer Science, Computer Applications, Medicine, Pharmacy, Natural Sciences or Technology, unless it is documented that the language of instruction for the programme was a language other than English, meet the English requirement. Please note that there are two exceptions:

A Bachelor’s degree in Information Technology will not meet the English requirement.
A Bachelor’s degree from Federal Urdu University of Arts, Science & Technology (FUUAST), will not meet the English requirement unless it is clearly stated in the official degree documentation that the language of instruction was English. Any other English language certificates or letters will not be accepted.

That's from the university admissions website! I guess, if your degree is in the given field and have submitted the required documentation under English proficiency, you are good! If you have any query , you can chat them up at university admissions - they were extremely quick and helpful! smile.gif
