When to apply

Malmö University partakes in four application rounds per year. Which application period that is most advantageous for you to apply in depends on your academic status and your residence status.

The deadlines for each application round is the same for all applicants nationally. Therefore we refer you to universityadmissions.se for exact dates.

The international application rounds, January

We recommend that all international applicants apply in the international application rounds. In this round, the results are published in the end of March. 

If you are finishing your bachelor’s degree in spring and want to apply for a master’s programme for the autumn semester, you apply in the international application round. You can be granted eligibility and admission on the condition that your studies are finished and you have received your degree certificate before September 1.

The national application rounds, April and October

Applicants who are exempted from application fees (EU, EEA, or Switzerland) can apply in the national application round.

If you are finishing upper secondary school in spring and want to apply for the autumn semester, you need to make your application in the April admission round. You need to submit your Upper Secondary Certificate to be eligible for our bachelor programmes. We do not grant conditional eligibility or admission.

Non-EU citizens who needs to pay tuition and apply for residence permits should not apply in these application rounds since it is near impossible to pay the fees and receive a residence permit before semester starts.
