Key dates and deadlines

When can I send in my application? What's the deadline? When will I receive my Notification of Selection Results? These are common questions students have regarding admissions. Here you will also find information about the academic calendar at Umeå University.

Two admission rounds

There are two admission rounds for you to apply to, with different dates and deadlines. We recommend all international students to apply to the First (main) admission round. This round takes place many months before the start of a semester and gives you the time you need to pay your tuition fees, apply for and receive your residence permit (if required), find housing, etc.

The Second admission round is an alternative for students from EU/EEA countries as they do not need a residence permit. Non-EU/EEA students will most likely not have enough time to obtain their permit before the start of the semester. However, if you are an EU/EEA student, you are also advised to apply to the First admission round, as some programmes can be applied for only in the First round. Also, this provides you with an admission decision much earlier, which is helpful in making decisions about your studies.

Dates for application to the spring semester

Please note that there are separate dates for master's and bachelor's, and for the two admissions rounds.
