Roadmap to Sweden 2022 – The perfect guide for those thinking of moving to Sweden to study next year.
On you mark
Sending in your applications, selecting your school and making sure you meet the requirement can be very daunting, so the first thing to do is to make a list of the possible courses you would like to apply for, check their requirements and then their specific requirements, make a list of the other specified documents that would accompany your application and if you’re a student from Nigeria, start making moves to apply for your Transcript.
Get Set? Go!
The university application period opened October 18th 2021 and will run for 3 months long which generally feels like a long time but if you let time to pass by without doing anything concrete you would see that you’re technically out of time and then one begins to feel the pressure. For me when I applied, I did every thing on time, I studied all the instructions, combed through every thing and made sure I submitted my application on time thereby letting go of the pressure that comes with submitting late. Leaving things to the last minute is never a good option and even the English proverbs says ‘We make hays when the sun shines”. Therefore, start working on the required documents for the programs you will be applying to.
The application for university admissions for both Bachelors and Masters students already opened on the 18th of October. If you haven’t started working on your application yet – start now. Find below the guide to the university admissions deadlines.
