System for admission
NyA is the national admissions system that Swedish higher education institutions use to manage a round of admissions. There is also the NyA web – a web tool available to departmental staff.
Validation of prior learning
As of 2021, there is a newly established position, as coordinator of validation of prior learning, at the Admissions Office. The coordinator will be a university channel for validation of prior learning in the assessment of entry requirements.
Recognition of prior learning (RPL) for general entry requirements is processed by the Admissions Office and in most cases, decisions are taken by the Admissions board. Whereas RPL for specific entry requirements is processed by the Admissions Office in consultation with the department or faculty offering the course or program.
If you have any questions regarding validation of prior learning, please contact the coordinator of validation of prior learning. For more contact details, see Contact information.
Request for deferment of studies
Students admitted to a course or programme have the opportunity to apply for deferment of studies if there are special grounds.
