Eligible for Master's (advanced) level?
All applicants must document their formal academic qualifications to prove that they are eligible. Only documentation from an internationally recognised university will be reviewed.
All applicants must both fulfil the general entry requirements (section 1, 2 or 3 below) as well as the specific entry requirements for the programme(s) they are applying to. Specific entry requirements include a Bachelor´s degree (or the equivalent) with a Major in...(one or several alternatives will be listed), prerequisites (required courses) and sometimes preferable course experience as well as the English language proficiency requirement, which is the same for all programmes.
A Bachelor´s degree (or ongoing studies) with a Major
To be eligible an applicant must either be a holder of a Bachelor's degree in Science/Engineering/Architecture or be enrolled in his/her last year of studies leading to such a degree. The Master's programme in Entrepreneurship and Business Design is the exceptions to this rule as this programme admits applicants with Bachelor's degrees from other fields as well.
- The degree must be equivalent to a Bachelor's degree (Kandidatexamen) according to Swedish regulations. It must, amongst other parameters, comprise 3 years of full time studies (180 credits).
- Applicants who are currently enrolled are welcome to apply given that they, at the time of applying, have a maximum of one semester left before completing their degree. They must anticipate completing their Bachelor's degree before the start of the Master's programme. Please read further instructions below regarding how to certify this.
- Applicants who are currently enrolled in long Tertiary Education Programmes with no intermediate Bachelor’s degree must have completed at least 80% (i.e. four of five years) of a full Master's Programme before the start of the Chalmers Master's Programme, to which they have applied, in order to be eligible to apply. Please read further instructions below regarding how to certify this. Applicants who are currently enrolled in long educational programmes with no intermediate Bachelor’s degree in a Nordic Country are required to have completed at least 3 years out of 5 of a full Master's programme, in accordance with the “Reykjavik act” of 2004.
Mandatory certification requirements for current students (section 2 and 3)
Applicants who are not holders of a Bachelor's degree when they apply must be enrolled in a degree programme according to either section 2 or 3 above. Only official documentation clearly showing this is valid. Official documentation can consist of transcripts alone but must sometimes be supplemented by a certificate. This is contingent on whether or not the transcript clearly outlines the information listed in section 2 here.
