Qualifications Assessment Tool

On the website 'Swedish Council for Higher Education' you can find a tool that provides you with an immediate response indicating what your foreign qualifications are equivalent to in Sweden. You can find the tool here. 

Bachelor's in Development Studies accepts around 80 students each year. In the menus below you find admission statistics for the program. 

Selection groups

The grades selection group is divided into three groups: Betygsgrupp I (grades group I) ”BI”, betygsgrupp II (grades group II) ”BII” and folkhögskolegruppen (folk high school group) ”BF”. 

In grades group I (BI), often called the direct group, are students who meet the entry requirements for their course or programme with their foreign upper secondary qualifications plus grades in Swedish, English and in some cases mathematics. In grades group II (BII) are students who have completed supplemental courses at komvux (adult education) in order to meet the entry requirements, or to raise their merit rating.
