All applicants who have applied to our Master's programmes before they have finished their Bachelor's degrees may be conditionally admitted. When arriving to BTH all conditionally admitted students have to prove that they have completed their Bachelor's education and obtained a Bachelor's degree, otherwise they will not be allowed to start the programmes they have been admitted to.
English as medium of instruction
All Bachelor's and Master's programmes at BTH that are presented in English on our website have English as the medium of instruction.
English Language Proficiency
Please check the application process regarding the specific English requirements for some countries. If your home country is not mentioned there, the general rule is that you need to provide an English proficiency test.
Please check the general English requirements on Universityadmissions.se:
English Language Requirements
BTH accepts all Academic IELTS, TOEFL tests and University of Cambridge ESOL Examinations.
A copy of the IELTS test results have to be sent to University Admissions in Sweden. All IELTS results will be verified online.
TOEFL tests must always be delivered as an original, from ETS directly to Universityadmissions's postal address: University Admissions in Sweden (code 9520).
N.B. No TOEFL tests sent by students along with other application documents will be accepted.
BTH only accepts Academic IELTS tests. The General IELTS test is not accepted for admission to higher education.
English proficiency letters are not accepted as proof of English skills.
The demands in English differ from programme to programme. Therefore, we can not specify in general terms which score you need to have on your English proficiency test to be considered for admission. Instead we recommend that you read the course description for each programme you are interested in for more information about the English requirements.
Deferment of studies to the next term
You may apply for deferment but no later than four weeks after the start of the programme you have been admitted to. You need to send in a formal request stating the reason for your request for a deferment by using the deferment e-form (link below).
Procedure if deferment is already received
If you have already received a deferment decision by e-mail and your studies are postponed to the next year you have to reapply for the same programme on Universityadmissions.se and only send a hard copy of this deferment e-mail as a supporting document to your application. No other application documents are required.
