Specific entry requirements

In addition to the general entry requirements and the English language requirements, the applicants must meet the specific entry requirements.

Programme-specific requirements

The programme-specific requirements include a Bachelor's degree (or the equivalent) with one or several possible majors and additional prerequisites.

The course content and learning objectives of relevant passed courses/subjects must be documented. Applicants are responsible for proving that they fulfil the specific entry requirements by submitting course description (syllabi) including course content and learning objectives matching all of the specific entry requirements.

Cumulative grade point average (CGPA)

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.

If the CGPA is not provided as a percentage on an official University document a conversion into percentage will be made by Chalmers admissions.

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.
