Less time to make applications at Studera.nu

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.

  6. I made a mistake while i inter my birth date in what way can i correct it? the exact one is 1986-08-20.

  7. John is your name, right? I think I saw it on another blog entry. I just want to congratulate you on your patience. Answering the same thing over and over again, and to people that seem to believe you have anything to do with the admission process or with the Studera website. Someone even saying, and I quote “please send me invitation letter and invite me for study in Sweden.”

    It’s not my intention to be rude but if one can’t figure out the “extremely complicated” procedure of consulting a webpage and follow the instructions, how would one truly expect to successfully complete a postgraduate study program in such a demanding academic environment like the Swedish.

    Well, congratulations on your blog and keep up the good work and patience.

    Best Regards.

    • Hi Armando,
      Thanks for that comment, it’s always nice to get such positive feedback. I take the attitude that choosing your education is one of the highest value purchases you will ever make, so you want as much confirmation as possible; so I can live with the questions I get (though I do think I need to make my role in the process clearer). The problem is that the communication of information, regarding the application process, is not as supported as well as it could be by the responsible organisations and often it’s hard to point people in the direction of a definitive answer. Once again, thanks for your kind words – they made for a nice start to an otherwise cold and dark winter morning!

  8. Hi John! I totally share Armando’s point of view and wish you luck with your beginning. But so far I couldn’t figure out your position whether you have had a previous experience with using studera.nu or somehow involved in workflow of the latter. Anyway, you’re helping people. That’s great!
    I have one more questions for you: Is there a procedure for non-bolognese edu. system (as it is in former USSR countries), where there’s no bachelor degree and 5-full year study instead, to be certified before applying to a master degree in Sweden. If so, is there any “how-to’s” or whatever? I went through the studera.nu but wasn’t lucky to find related information. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Best regards.

    • Hi Sultancent,
      I am a web editor at Lund University. I started blogging about the proposed introduction of tuition fees and thus include information about studera.nu. I suggest you contact the programme coordinator for the programmes you are interested in, with regard to your question about qualifications. You could also ask this question at the studera.nu facebook group.
