Late application and the admission of late applicants

If you work in study administration, here you can learn more about the procedures that apply for late applications and the admission of late applicants.

Procedure for late applications

Lund University is no longer open for applications received after the deadline. Only after the first selection has been made is it possible to include the option of late applications. A request to include such an option must be made by the faculty management to the Admissions Office.

The procedure for late applications applies to all admissions throughout the year – summer, autumn, and spring – to freestanding courses, study programmes, and courses included in study programmes.

The admission of late applicants

Courses and programmes that are not yet full, and that do not have any applicants on a waiting list from the initial round of admissions, can accept late applicants. For this, you need to report the remaining number of available spots to NyA web. The number reported must include the amount of initially admitted applicants, as well as the amount of late applicants that you want to accept for the course or programme.

For example: you have admitted 10 applicants from the selection group 2, and have no further applicants on the waiting list. You wish to accept an additional 10 applicants, these are then late applications. You must in that case report the number 20 to NyA web.

Special authorisation is required for you to enter the remaining number of available places on the NyA web.

If you have not entered the remaining number of available places, applicants will be placed on a waiting list. Note: qualified applicants to courses and programmes with a waiting list, will always be placed on a waiting list after the ordinary selection.

Departments with education offers open for late applications must enter a contact person to whom the results from the late admittance selection are sent. Entering or changing the contact person is done through the NyA web, and requires special authorisation.

Remember to close courses and programmes to late applications should they be full.
