The “first admission round” is for students that require a residence permit in order to start their studies in Sweden (deadline mid-January). The “second admission round” is for international and Swedish national students that do not need to apply for a residence permit (deadline mid-April).

Electronics Design is the only international programme at Mid Sweden University where students have the possibility to start their studies during the spring semester. The application deadline is mid-August for the January admission.

How much does it cost?

Citizens of the EU, EEA and Switzerland are not required to pay an application fee or tuition.

Is this available online?

All international programmes offered by Mid Sweden University (except for Emotion Psychology) are campus-based. Emotion Psychology is an internet-based programme that has one to two mandatory meetings in Östersund, Sweden, every semester.

What is the duration?

The duration of each programme differs. As 60 credits are a full-time study load for one year, most of our programmes at Mid Sweden University are either one or two years long. Because Emotion Psychology can be studied at a part-time study pace (15 credits per semester and 30 credits per year), the duration of 2 years at a full-time load becomes 4 years at a part-time study load.

Can I take this part-time?

All of Mid Sweden University’s international programmes (except for Emotion Psychology) need to be studies at a full-time study pace (30 credits per semester = 60 credits per year). Emotion Psychology can either be studied full-time or part-time (15 credits per semester = 30 credits per year). This means, of course, that the study duration for part-time studies doubles.
