Selection procedure

To be eligible for the scholarship selection process, you must meet the entry requirements and be admitted to the Master's programme at the University of Gothenburg which you have applied for, in the early application round (deadline mid-January). Scholarships are offered to applicants demonstrating a high level of academic performance. The selection process consists of an assessment made by academic and administrative staff at the University of Gothenburg.

Priority is given to those who apply to the University of Gothenburg as their first choice.

The selection process takes place in early spring, i.e. during the same period of time that the applications for programme studies are processed. Notifications are sent out via e-mail around the same time as the admission notifications are published.

Scholarship offers are only valid for studies starting in the semester for which you have applied. It is not possible to defer an offer.

Please note that fee-paying applicants who have been offered a scholarship from the Swedish Institute are not eligible for the scholarships mentioned above.
