MASTERHT18 statistics are out on http://statistik.uhr.se/

What is the difference between MASTERHT18 and HT2018? Which one should I look at, as an international fee paying student?

MASTERHT18 has the statistics for master's programs, and HT2018 has the statistics for bachelor's programs as well as some special Swedish Master's programs, like civilingenjör (Master of Science in Engineering) programs that are only for Swedish applicants (or rather people who speak Swedish). For international students applying to master's programs you should be looking at MASTERHT18.

These are the selection groups. Each selection group has a certain number of spots for each program, and there is various criteria depending on the school and program as to which group you will be placed in. For example, my number one choice (Master of Science in Computer Science at KTH) has two groups: BEFR and AVG. BEFR is the group for non-fee-paying students, and AVG is the group for fee-paying students.

I'd like to share details of my application for anyone who is curious in the coming years and is checking this forum. I will update this post with details of which program I got into in April when the decisions come out.

Program Selections:

  1. KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Master of Science in Computer Science
  2. KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Master of Science in Software Engineering of Distributed Systems
  3. Chalmers University of Technology, Master of Science in Computer Science - Algorithms, Languages, Logic
  4. Uppsala University, Master of Science in Computer Science


About me: I am an applicant in my early to mid 20s with dual US and European citizenship. I have a four year bachelor's degree in Computer Science from a somewhat decent US public university (ranked anywhere from 50th to 120th in the world, depending on which ranking you look at) with a 3.3/4.0 GPA. I am currently employed as a software engineer in the US.

I have 3 letters of recommendation for KTH (1 professor, 2 employers) and 2 for Chalmers (1 professor, 1 employer). I updated my CV to be more "European Style" with some details of personal information and also longer length than a typical US resume (2 pages instead of 1 page). My letters of motivation are each 1 page long.

If anyone has any questions feel free to PM me or post here.

I applied for my bachelor, but I have not received my merit rating for the 3 courses that I applied to. I submitted my university transcript however they wanted a hard copy, so I decided not send my hard copy because a university transcript was not necessary for bachelor studies. Do you think this is why its taking so long to receive my merit score?

Thank you Ashish! I wouldn't have thought to scroll that far down haha

My options are the following:
1) Environmnetal Mangamenent and Policy at Lund University (570 applicants, 265 first option)
2) Disaster Risk Management and Climate Change Adaptation in Lund (513, 274)
3) Political Science at Gothenburg University (227, 70)
4) Environmental Social Science at Stockholm University (209, 55)

All are in progress so far. I'm not sure if I should be too worried. It definitely helps to see the progress of all the others on the thread, I'm so happy it exists! Did anyone else apply to any of these masters?

Which program is this and at what university? The number of 1st choice applications really doesn't matter all that much to be honest with you. For example, one of the programs I am applying to (MS in Computer Science at Uppsala University) had 808 applicants last year, with 308 of them choosing the program as their top choice. That said, every single person who applied on-time with a valid application got into the program. In Sweden, if you have a valid application (you meet all of the requirements and have all of your documents) you will never get rejected, but instead placed on a waitlist if you do not get accepted into the program.

If you tell me which program it is I can look into the admissions from last year and give you a better indication of your chances.
