Updated 12th December 2008 – since I wrote this, studera.nu was partially relaunched, I’ve changed the links below so they work.
Studera.nu reports that the next application period, for international students will end in January 2009. This is the application period aimed at International students wishing to study in the fall 2009. Applications can be made from December 1st, 2008. They do not say exactly when in January, but this means that the application period could be around 15 days shorter than previous years. Studera.nu is the online application site for all applications to Swedish universities. My concern about this is that it means that more of the application period now takes place during the holiday season, when many of the universities’ staff are on holiday and will be unable to answer questions and give advice.
