Submit only one set of documents

More documents may sound like a good idea, but it can actually cause a delay in the processing of your application. We only need one set of your documents to review your application.

Why can sending in extra documents delay my application?

Admissions officers are required to review every document that arrives from applicants - even doubles. It's impossible for them to tell if the doubles are exact copies or updated copies. If there are a number of documents that are the same, we still must review and compare - and this takes a lot of time. This winds up delaying the process for you and all applicants.

Isn't it good to have a back-up?

This isn't necessary. If you've uploaded your documents and you see the files listed in your account, we've received them. If there is any problem with the scans or files, we'll let you know.

If you've used the postal or a delivery service, you'll see the date when we received your documents in your account. There's no need to upload additional copies.

What if I want to change the motivation letter my university requires?

Once a document has been submitted - by uploading or regular mail - you cannot delete it, or have it deleted. This is according to Swedish law. We recommend you make sure the document you upload is your final copy. 

If you really want to make a change, you can always submit the updated motivation letter and call the document "version 2". 

Should I submit documents even if they aren't required?

Documents that haven't been requested by University Admissions or the university will not be considered. They will, however, need to be reviewed as we must review all submitted documents. This will also delay the processing of your application.

Be sure to check the course/programme page on the university website to find out exactly what is required. We have information right here at this website about what documents are required of all applicants.
