  • Number of credits earned in relation to the number of possible credits in the current programme (maximum 1 point)
  • Number of VG/pass with credit (A-B, 4-5) in relation to the number of possible VG/pass with credit (A-B, 4-5) in the current programme (maximum 1 point)
  • Merit value is given to applicants engaged in the student union or other student association, or applicants engaged as mentors for international students for at least one semester. Certificates are required (maximum 0.2 points)
  • In case of same total scores, there will be a lottery

Please note that the University of Borås cannot guarantee the admission as the receiving university reserves the right to decide which applicants will be admitted.
