Admissions office

The Admissions Office at Linnaeus University is responsible for the processes leading up to a student being admitted to the university. We also handle applications concerning approved leave from studies, deferment of studies, and prior learning. On this page, you will find information on who to contact and where to find application links and forms.

In Sweden a national admissions system is used for all applications to higher education and this is where you apply, upload your qualifications and track your application. For application to higher education studies in Sweden taught in English, please visit website University Admissions.

Once you have uploaded your qualifications and they have been registered, the higher education institution at Linnaeus University will make an assessment of your qualifications. All qualified applicants will be given a merit rating which is then used to allocate the places and the waiting list places.

Contact the Admissions Office at Linnaeus University if you have any questions concerning decisions on eligibility, merit rating or selection.

Who should I contact?

Local forms

Sometimes, not everything turns out the way you planned. Perhaps you need to temporarily discontinue your studies or a deferment of studies? Or maybe you started studying in Växjö but would rather continue your studies in Kalmar? Or you may feel that you should have chosen another specialisation of your programme? Below you will find our local applications and more information. And, naturally, if you think the process is difficult and challenging we will help you along the way.

Prior learning

“I don’t have a grade in English B/6 or the equivalent from upper secondary school/high school, but I truly believe that I can complete the programme anyway. Can I apply for assessment of prior learning?”

If you are thinking about applying for an assessment of prior learning, you can find more information here. Learn more about our guidelines and how an assessment is carried out.
