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 for which you have applied. 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.

If you have applied to the University of Gothenburg as your first choice, you will be given priority.

The selection process is administered in early spring, i.e. around the same time as the applications for study programmes are processed. Notifications are sent out via e-mail around the same time as the admission notifications are distributed.

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 scholarship.
