Welcome to the information page for applicants who have completed studies in Laos, with information about meeting the English requirement, what previous studies meet the basic entry requirements, and any special documentation instructions. 

Start with Step 1 - Finding out what I need to submit

There are general instructions for all applicants; it is important that you start with Step 1 and then work your way through the remaining steps in order to submit the right documents in the right way.

Meeting the English requirement - bachelor's and master's level studies

Upper secondary studies completed in this country do not meet the English requirement for studies in Sweden. Even if you studied English at your upper secondary school, it is not enough to give you eligibility in regard to English.

You can demonstrate that you meet the English language requirement through certain university studies, or an internationally approved English test. Find out more at the following link:

English language requirements

Previous studies that meet the general entry requirements and any documentation requirements

For bachelor's level studies:

Baccalauréat de l’Énseignement General + Releve des Notes

For master's level studies:

A 5-year Bachelor’s degree (until 2009) or 4-year Bachelor’s degree (after 2009) meet the general entry requirement.

To document your eligibility, please submit your diploma and transcript.


Always submit your documents in Lao

  • You must submit your diploma and transcript in the original language (Lao), and also submit an official translation of your documents. Official means that your translation must be completed by a translation company or a person who works as a translator. Accepted translation languages are Swedish and English.
  • If your university issues your documents in English, these cannot alone be accepted. We must then also have the documents in Lao.
