Entry requirements

This education is exclusively offered as a commissioned education and will be regulated via an agreement between the Faculty of Odontology and the employer/sponsor of the candidate. Malmö University does not offer a grant or scholarship for programme participation.

Admission process 

The number of available spots in the programme is limited. There is no guarantee that the faculty will announce positions in all subareas at each announcement. All paperwork concerning validation of credentials and the application procedure is managed with assistance from our partner, Swedish HealthCare Academy, who have long-standing experience in arranging for the entry of international candidates to major universities in Sweden. 

Professional requirements

Degree in Dentistry with a minimum of two years documented clinical experience after graduation, at the time of application.

Language requirements

Malmö University requires English proficiency equivalent to secondary school for all programmes and courses taught in English. Non-EU candidates must demonstrate their English skills through an internationally recognised English test. Accepted tests are IELTS Academic and TOEFL.

Required test scores:

  • IELTS: an academic test with an overall mark of 6.5 and no module under 5.5
  • TOEFL (Paper-based): total score of at least 575. The written test must be at least 4.5 (scale 1-6)
  • TOEFL (Internet-based): total score of at least 90. The written test must be at least 20 (scale 0-30)

Swedish course (only for participants in the four-year master's programme)

To be able to carry out their clinical duties, students in the four-year master's programme with advanced clinical training are required, prior to the programme start, to pass a test in Swedish language equivalent to level B1. To achieve this, a full time Swedish course is given at the faculty starting five months before the programme begins.

Participants in the four-year master's programme with advanced clinical training with specialisation in pediatric dentistry are required to pass a test in Swedish language equivalent to level B2 before the 5th semester, when the main clinical training begins (Year 3 and 4). If the student fails, an additional three to six months of training in Swedish will be required.

A description of all documents required to be submitted can be found at the Swedish Health Care Academy's website, where you can also find the application form once the programme is open for admissions.

Interview

Based on nominations from the employer/sponsor, prospective students will be interviewed by a committee of faculty members from the department responsible.
