Complete your Gymnasieexamen with at least 2,500 credits and an overall grade point average of **. The diploma project/thesis is excluded from our GPA calculation.
We require a Kandidatexamen (bachelor’s degree), Yrkesexamen (professional bachelor’s degree), or Magisterexamen (master’s degree). Traditionally, higher education institutions have often used a three-level scale: Pass with distinction (Väl godkänd), Pass (Godkänd) and Fail (Underkänd) or a two-level scale: Pass (Godkänd), Fail (Underkänd). However, the grading system used will vary from institution to institution.

English language equivalency
We will accept grades MVG – VG, A-C or 5-3 on the English component of the Slutbetyg från Gymnasieskola as meeting our minimum English language proficiency requirements, subject to also meeting the Non-SELT English Language Validity policy appended.
