Specific eligibility in the English language from upper secondary school for non-Swedish students:
TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) test with a minimum score of at least 575/90, or IELTS (International English Language Testing Service) test with a minimum score of at least 6.5 no section below 5.5, or University of Cambrige and Oxford tests. Detailed information is available on www.antagning.se.
The base for ranking of applicants is previous university studies, GPA (grades from previous university studies) and English.
The first step of the ranking process is an assessment of the relevance of the area and specialisation of the applicants' previous university studies to the applied programme. This assessment is made in three categories: minimal relevance = merit points 0, average relevance = merit points 0,5, high relevance = merit points 1. Finally, the applicants' TOEFL or IELTS level in English is normalised to a value between 0 and 1, where 0 is the minimum level to pass the prerequisites of the applied programme and 1 is the maximum level of the test. Applicants' who are not required to prove their English skills with TOEFL or IELTS tests will get the merit point 1. These two merit point values are added to a total merit value between 0 and 2. A maximum of 2 merit points will be given, according to the above given details.
Applications that are accepted for review based on the basic requirements for the programme will be ranked according to the details above. If not all applicants with the same lowest merit point can be admitted lots will be drawn.
