General entry requirements

A Bachelor's degree in Science, Engineering, Technology or Architecture

To fulfil the general entry requirement for a Master's programme at Chalmers (at advanced level/the second cycle), the prospective student must hold a degree that is equivalent to a Swedish Bachelor degree (minimum 3years, 180 Swedish higher education credits) in either Science, Engineering, Technology or Architecture.

  • All applicants must document their formal academic qualifications to prove their eligibility. Only documentation from internationally recognized universities will be approved by the Swedish Council for Higher Education which manages the website
  • If an applicant is also holder of a second degree such as a Master's degree, that may be as to fulfil specific (course) requirements, it cannot be used to fullfill the general entry requirement on it's own.

In your final year of Bachelor's Studies

Students in their last year of studies who don't yet have documentation of their soon to be completed degree can be accepted. Read the terms and conditions that applies.

All applicants must meet the specific entry requirements

The specific entry requirements must be met by passed courses listed in your transcript of records. This and and the course description (syllabus with course content and learning outcome)  are necessary.


Degrees which are constructed on one another cannot consist of the same course

Applicants who fulfill the general entry requirements for second cycle (master’s level) programmes and eventually specific entry requirements can be admitted to a master’s programme. Applicants cannot be evaluated as unqualified in the qualifying academic merits which include courses from the programme’s plan in those programmes that they have applied for, if that occurs.
Courses included in an earned first cycle degree (bachelor’s level) or professional qualification of at least 180 cr. (180hp) or the equivalent foreign qualification that are prerequisites for master’s qualifications may not be included in the higher qualifications. This also applies to prerequisite courses for master’s programmes, regardless of whether they are included in the underlying qualification. *

Restrictions for Citizens from the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea)

Chalmers cannot admit applicants with citizenship of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea only to any programme or course, due to the Council Regulation (EU) 2017/1509 of 30 August 2017 concerning restrictive measures against the Democratic People's Republic of Korea and repealing Regulation (EC) 329/2007.

Applicants with double citizenships of which one is of Democratic People's Republic of Korea and the other of another country, the citizenship of the other country has precedence in this respect.​
