Lebanon, bachelor's admission

Find out what you need to submit, what previous studies meet the general entry requirements, how to meet the English requirement and any special instructions for your country of study.

Meeting the general entry requirements

You can meet the general criteria with:

  • General Secondary Diploma (from national examination) (شهادة الثانوية العامة) or
  • Baccalauréat Libanais (شهادة البكالوريا للتعليم الثانوي/شهادة البكالوريا اللبنانية)

To document your eligibility, please submit your diploma and transcript from all upper secondary (high school) years.

Please note the following special instructions:

  • Upper secondary grades from the graduation years 1978, 1985, 1987-1989 2014 and 2020 must attach an officially issued certificate that the student was signed up to take the national examination (baccalaureat), and also include final school grades. 

Meeting the English requirement

Lebanese upper secondary studies might meet the English requirement for studies in Sweden. You must show that English is the first foreign language studied during your upper secondary years. The baccalaureat document that is required does not generally state this. Because of this be sure to submit your diploma and transcripts from all years at secondary/high school.

You can also demonstrate that you meet the English language requirement through certain university studies, or an internationally approved English test. Find out more at the following link:

General document requirements

To complete your admissions application, you must provide the following documentation:

1. Record of completed upper secondary (high school) education

For your eligibility for courses and programmes at the bachelor's level to be determined - and for you to compete with other applicants for available places in courses and programmes - you must submit your upper secondary qualifications. 

This completed education must qualify you for higher education studies in the country you received it. 

2. Identification document

To speed up the processing of your application, we require a copy of the page in your passport with your personal data and photograph, or a similar identification document.

What about university records?

Your university qualifications cannot be considered instead of your upper secondary (high school) qualifications. However, the results from your previous university studies may help you meet the specific entry requirements for a course or programme. We therefore recommend that you submit documentation of your university studies. 

To find out how to submit them, see the information for your country of study for master's applications.

Translation requirements

Your documents must be submitted in the original Arabic, and also in an official translation to English or Swedish. Official means that your translation must be completed by a translation company or a person who works as a translator.

Your name and birthdate must match on all documents

For your documents to be accepted:

  • the name and birthdate provided must be the same on all your documents (ID, transcripts, degree certificate, etc.)
  • the name on your documents must match the name you reported in your account at Universityadmissions.se

If the names are different, you must provide us with documentation (for example, a marriage certificate if you've been married) as to why they don't match.

If the birthdate on any of your documents is different from your passport, the difference must be explained with official documentation.

This documentation must be either issued in English or Swedish or, if issued in another language, officially translated to Swedish or English.

The easiest way to get your documentation to us is by uploading it here at Universityadmissions.se. 

Incomplete documentation

It's your responsibility to ensure that you have read and understood the application requirements and have gathered and submitted all the necessary components of the admissions application by the deadline.


University Admissions in Sweden checks the authenticity of your documents with the issuing institution. University Admissions in Sweden reserves the right to revoke admission if supporting documents are discovered to be fraudulent.

Submission of false documents is a violation of Swedish law and is considered grounds for legal action.
