Hello,. Please tell me about the Swedish Institute Study Scholarships (SISS). Because without it would be so costly to study in Sweden.. https://si.se/en/apply/scholarships/swedish...ps/#requireddoc



Not discouraging you from applying or anything, but less than 1% of all the applicants receive SI scholarship. From what I know, two most essential skills you need to demonstrate is 3000+ hours of work experience and proof of leadership skills.

Also, education in Sweden is cheaper compared to countries in the Anglosphere, don't you think?

Selection for master's programmes is usually based on a number of Higher Education Credits. We do not take grade point average or letters of reference or recommendation into consideration.

I have always wondered, what exactly does this mean? Simply put, my question is this: Are they saying that someone who got straight As in college and has a 4.0 gpa does not have a better chance than someone with a lesser gpa? What do they take into consideration if they don't look at your grades?
I'm sorry, my university didn't use a credit system, you simply got a mark for each course after an exams and all those marks were added up to give you an overall gpa, and each course was equivalent in weight so I'm not exactly familiar with credits and how they can be used to determine who gets a place and who doesn't.

Meaning if you have completed a higher number of credits, you get the place? Even though there might be someone else with a better GPA and lesser credits?

No, The Admission's website categories people by completed credits. Then, the university picks the people based on overall qualifications which could include grades, work experience (CV), University degree, English proficiency, GMAT or GRE.

Hope that clears it up buddy smile.gif.

Best regards,

Thank you for your reply!
Do you mean there won't be changes on status to Qualified or Unqualified until late March or April?
KTH makes their announcement whether I am qualified or not qualified relatively late?
Thank you

It more than likely will be relatively late (judging by previous years of the admissions thread), but it could also potentially be as early as today. Nobody really knows except the KTH admissions committee for your particular program of choice.
