General admission requirements
International students may be admitted to courses and programmes taught in English or, if they have sufficient knowledge of Swedish, to courses and programmes taught in Swedish. Priority is given to students on exchange programmes.
Karlstad University will only process applications received by the application deadline. It is essential that the application is completed in full and that all the required documents are submitted; otherwise the application will not be considered. Students should, preferably, be recommended by their home university on an exchange basis.
Courses as well as programmes have a limited number of places and selection is usually based on your grade point average from upper secondary school or the number of credit points from previous university studies, or both. Letters of recommendation are not considered. Exchange students are given priority to the courses.
You will be notified about acceptance at the end of March for the autumn semester and in September for the spring semester.
