SPECIFICATION OF SELECTION CRITERIA: Only the number of earned higher education credits documented by the applicant in conjunction with the application will be considered. Foreign credits will be transferred according to the guidelines established by the Swedish Council for Higher Education.

HIGHEST MERIT RATING The merit rating consists of the total number of earned higher education credits and is calculated in the interval 30 – 285 higher education credits

WORKING METHOD: The selection can, to a large degree, be carried out mechanically. If all applicants with the lowest equal merit rating cannot be offered a place, lots will be drawn.

You will study here

On BTH’s main campus in Karlskrona, you will find our programmes and courses in engineering, IT, spatial planning, industrial economics and health sciences.

 

Campus Gräsvik in Karlskrona is located right next to the water, and there is even a swimming jetty 50 meters from the lecture halls. From the modern library’s study areas, you have a nice view of the sea and outside there are exercise trails that take you through the woods and along the beach.
