An undergraduate degree (BA/BSc) with at least 60 ECTS credits in economics, economic history, history, statistics or the equivalent.

English language requirements

Strong English language communication skills are crucial to gain the full benefit of this programme.

What are our minimum requirements?
The English language entry requirement is the equivalent of English studies at upper secondary level in Sweden (gymnasium), called English 6/English Course B.

For international students, this can be demonstrated in various ways. You can demonstrate that you meet the English language requirement through certain upper secondary (high school) studies, certain university studies, or an internationally approved English test.

We prefer candidates to take the IELTS test where possible.
