Meeting the general entry requirements
A Bachelor's degree/Licence (درجة البكالوريوس/اجازة) meets the general criteria.
To document your eligibility, please submit your diploma/certificate and transcript. If your qualifications are in French, submit your Diplôme et releve de notes (شهادة درجة البكالوريوس /اجازة وكشف علامات).
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.
If you’re documenting your English based on your upper secondary studies, you must provide documentation demonstrating you meet the requirement. Please submit your upper secondary documents as indicated for bachelor’s level studies.
You can 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:

4. Proof that you meet the specific entry requirements
It's important you check your university's website for information regarding the specific entry requirements for the course or programme you have applied to and any other documentation they may require, such as dissertations, essay summaries, letters of recommendation, or letters of intent.
