How to apply
Master Programmes and Single Courses
Applications for Master programmes and single courses are handled within a
system coordinated by VHS, the National Admissions Office (Agency for Services
to Universities and University Colleges) and their website
Universityadmissions.se details everything you need to know about the application procedure; no other application forms are available. If you are applying as an exchange student (Bi-lateral, Erasmus, Nordplus, Linnaeus-Palme, Swedish Institute Visby Program etc.), you apply through your home university.
Applications for Master programmes 2013/2014 start December
1, 2011. Some programmes will allow applications from October 17. Application
deadline is January 15, 2013.
The application period for admission to Single courses in
spring 2013 is:
• September 17 - October 15
The application process is partly web-based, but you also need to send all required documents by regular mail. The application consists of four phases:
1. Create a user account
In order to apply you need to start by creating a user account at the website https://www.antagning.se/intl/start. This is used to log in to the web-based application form ("My pages").
2. Web-based application form
Once you have created your user account, you can search for and select the courses or programmes you want to apply for. We advice you to use the link below to browse courses and programmes given in English in our catalogue.
Click on the name for a course/programme you are interested in and then
"Apply here!". This click brings you to the equivalent resulting page at
Click on 'Add' for the course or programme you are interested in and place them in "My selection". Click on 'To application' to create an application in your name.
The next step will be to rank the selected courses/programmes in order of preference. Then choose "Submit", mark the box for supporting documents and submit again.
3. Cover Sheet
After submission of the web-based application form, you will get access to a cover sheet for your supporting documents (see phase 4 below). This cover sheet should be printed and signed.
If you cannot do this straight away, you will be able to reach and print it later via "My pages". The sheet contains your personal data and is essential for matching the actual documents with your application.
4. Complete application
Your complete application should consist of the signed cover sheet along with all the required supporting documents (correctly certified). All supporting documents and copies must be stamped and signed by the issuing institution.
Scanned, photocopied or faxed documents are not accepted. Please note that applications that are not supported by proper documents will not be processed. For some countries original documents must be sent directly from your university. See link below for more important information about supporting documentation.
Send your application package to the address given on the cover sheet. Do NOT send it to Gotland University!
Proficiency in English
Proficiency in English supported by documents is required for most applicants. If your secondary school qualifications for English do not fulfil the requirement for English proficiency and English is not your mother tongue, you must take an officially recognized test such as TOEFL or IELTS. Please note that English proficiency letters are not accepted as proof of English proficiency.
Currently Gotland University has been awarded scholarships to students at the Master Programmes. Financial support must be obtained by other means. The Swedish Institute (SI) has a limited amount of scholarships available to students who come for their, mostly, Master studies to Sweden.
