Decisions you can appeal

You can appeal decisions made regarding your eligibility for higher education studies in Sweden. For example, if you are deemed unqualified for a course or programme because you do not meet the general or specific entry requirements, you can appeal this decision.

What can't I appeal?

If you apply to a course or programme and are not offered a place, this decision cannot be appealed. You may only appeal your status as unqualified, not whether or not you're offered a place. 

Find out more about what decisions you can appeal in the Higher Education Ordinance, chapter 12

You submit your appeal at Universityadmissions.se. It is important to follow the instructions given regarding information to include and submission instructions.
