Application for 2018 is now closed.
Welcome back for applying to the study year 2019/20!

2018 year's application round is now closed.

Here is the time plan for you who have applied this year:

Time plan!

In week 11 our jury will start the work with selecting the applicants they would like to interview. Parallell to this work the Admissions Office at Umeå University will go through/ check on the entry requirements (giving priority to the ones that the jury has selected). Documentation you might forgot to upload as you applied to you can upload later but please do it as soon as possible and no later than March 12. For example you need to document your EU/EEA citizenship status. Find out more here how you do that. If you applied to our master's programme and you are in your final year of bachelor's studies you can still be conditionally admitted, however official documentation from your current university is required. See here for more information.

In week 12, as soon as the jury work is completed, we will call for interviews. The interviews take place at the school in week 14 (April 4-6). The members of the jury prefer to do the interview in person but for international applicants living abroad, and/or in exceptional cases, it could be conducted over skype. Because of the short time between the selection work and the actual interview it is important you confirm as soon as possible so please check your email daily throughout week 12! The ones who do not hear back from us then will not be admitted or offered a place on the waiting list (unless the jury decides to call more applicants for a second round of interviews). Finally, the notification of selection result will be published on in week 19 (May 8). There will be only one selection round and so there is no last date for replying to, i.e. you do not have to accept your place/ place as reserve, however if you decide to decline we want to know about it as soon as possible so that we without delay can offer the place to the next person on the waiting list.
