Admission to Master’s programmes

Here you will find information about the procedures that apply to admission to Master’s programmes – primarily useful to those of you who work as a programme coordinator or programme director for a Master’s programme.

Admission to second-cycle programmes in English takes place through a separate round of admissions, with an application deadline of 15 January for the autumn semester and 15 August for the spring semester. Master’s programmes taught in Swedish may be part of the general round of admissions, with an application deadline of 15 April/15 October.

Calls for applications to programmes can only be issued once per semester. Under special circumstances, a supplemental round of admission may take place, subject to approval by the Education Board. Such requests must be received by joakim [dot] hall [at] stu [dot] lu [dot] se by the first day for application for the international round of admissions.

Administration and assessment – who does what?

  • The Swedish Council for Higher Education (UHR) assesses the applicant’s general eligibility and English.
  • The department that coordinates the programme assesses the specific entry requirements, and evaluates the applicant’s qualifications, through the NyA web.
  • The admissions office will send out instructions and a current timetable ahead of each round of admissions. Should a department change their contact person/programme administrator, it is important that you notify the admissions office.

For timetables on admission to the Master’s programme, see page on Admission

Conditionally admitted Master’s students applying for courses in the second semester of a programme

Students who have been conditionally admitted to a Master’s programme, and who have not been registered on the programme the week before the application period for second-semester courses has opened, will not be included in the programme documentation for that semester, and thus cannot apply for courses within the programme.

If a student informs you that the complete documentation of their first-cycle qualification is available in NyA, please ask the admissions office to check the student’s eligibility immediately. If the programme registration is completed after the application period for second-semester courses has opened, please inform us so that we can include the student in the programme documentation manually.

Students who are not registered on the programme by the application deadline for semester two will have to apply for the course as a freestanding course. If the student is registered on the programme before the first selection is made, you may ask us to change the application to within the programme. If you only offer courses within a programme, students who have not been registered for the programme will have to wait for a possible late registration round.
