The additional prerequisites constitute of one or several courses selected as necessary for the specific programme (if any). Three of Chalmers master's programmes require a portfolio. Two programme applies alterantive selection in several steps (Entrepreneurship and business design and Learning and Leadership).
Passed courses with credits and grades only

selection criteria such as a portfolio. Chalmers do not accept ongoing
courses as proof, only passed courses listed in a transcript with
credits as well as grades specified.
If they are not noted as passed and
graded, there is no proof of the student's achievment. The learning
outcome is necessary for a specific programme.
Ongoing courses (not listed and/or not graded in the submitted transcript of records) will not be approved.
Each course in your transcript of records that you want to claim as matching the courses listed as prerequisites (if any) must also be clarified in detail by a supporting syllabus (course plan including course content and outcome).
Cumulative grade point average (CGPA)
If the CGPA is not
provided as a percentage on an official University document a conversion
into percentage will be made by Chalmers admissions. If possible provide information of CGPA together with the university scale.
In order to be eligible for Master's programmes at Chalmers applicants are generally required to have attained at least a 70% cumulative average of the
maximum grade during their Bachelor's studies. Exception from this requirement may be granted when a combination of other elements of the application (i.e. a high average grade in courses that are required or recommended by the master’s programme applied for, CV, letter of intent/motivation, letters of recommendation, international ranking of their home university, relevant internship or work experience and etc.) can be considered to compensate for a lower CGPA than the 70% minimum.
Please note that fulfilment of the minimum
grade requirement does not necessarily guarantee that you will be
admitted, as admission to Chalmers is subject to place availability and
the general overall strength of your application, in addition to
fulfilling other entry requirements.
