Applications for the autumn 2020 admission have closed. So what’s next for those who were successful in submitting their application on January 15th? It’s time to put your supporting documentation together. This documentation is proof of your eligibility to study at Malmö University!
There is so much information to sift through but worry not, I’m here to give you facts and tips before you submit your eligibility documentation. First things first, take a deep breath. Close your eyes. Regroup. Let’s go!
How should you prepare to submit your supporting documentation? Not sure where to start? Here’s a step-by-step on what you should begin with:
1. Start by checking what supporting documentation your course and the University requires. Some courses require a letter of motivation, your curriculum vitae or some other documentation.
When I was applying for the Leadership for Sustainability programme, one of the supporting documentation they required was a summary of my project paper from my bachelor’s degree. So, be careful to check what documentation your programme requires!
2. Next, check the required documentation for eligibility at University Admissions here: Documenting your eligibility for studies
This means your transcripts, certificates, and English proficiency test results. For master’s applicants, there are some cases where you don’t have to submit proof of English proficiency. You can check these further here: English Requirements
You can also check country-specific requirements here: Country Specific Requirements
3. Make sure you upload your documentation in the right format as required by University admissions. The last thing you want is to have your application delayed or rejected.
Scan all of your original documentation in its original form. For instance, if your original transcripts are in color, make sure you scan and submit them in color. Once you’re ready, you can upload your supporting documentation by logging into your University admissions account (the same account you submitted your application to).
4. Applicants from EU countries have the opportunity to apply in the second round for the autumn 2020 intake. If you’re from the EU, in case your documents weren’t ready or you missed the first round of applications, you can apply in the second round. This round is not recommended for international applicants from outside of the EU.
Now you’ve submitted your documentation, congratulations! Now, the waiting game begins. While you wait, keep in mind these important dates:
• February 3rd – Deadline to submit supporting documentation proving eligibility
• February 10th – Swedish Institute Scholarships open
• April 3rd – Notification of results for master’s applicants
• April 15th – Applications for the second round for EU applicants open

The application process is user-friendly and all of the information to your questions is on the University admissions page, but if you get stuck, you can send an email to email@example.com! All the best.
