Our Pathway Programmes are designed for international students as a bridge towards a degree from Jönköping University. When applying for a Pathway Programme, you may also apply for a degree programme at Jönköping University. If eligible, you will receive a conditional offer to a master programme.

To apply for a Pathway programme combined with a Master Programme follow these steps:

  1. Fill in the online application form. Please note that the postal address and e-mail address you provide will be used for all future communication. It is therefore very important that the information is correct.
  2. When you have completed the application form, please check the information carefully before submitting the application by clicking on the "Next" button.

Upload Documents

Most applicants can upload their documents. However, for a few countries, different rules apply*.

Important Before Uploading

  • Make sure you have all your available documents for uploading.
  • The upload feature allows you to return to your application to upload additional documents.

Documents to upload

  1. Bachelor Diploma from a recognized university. Note: If you have not yet received the diploma, but are in your final year, you may submit documentation from your university, certifying that you are an active student in your last semester. The document must be issued through and certified by a representative of the Academic Registrar's Office, the Examinations Office, or equivalent.
  2. Transcripts of completed courses and grades *
  3. Thesis, independent work or equivalent from your bachelor’s degree (original language) only if the programme you are applying to requires a thesis or equivalent. Read more about if you need to upload a thesis or equivalent.
  4. Proof of English proficiency. See our language requirements for Pathway.
  5. A copy of your passport (EU/EEA/Swiss citizens may submit a copy of a valid identity card which clearly states citizenship).


Always submit documents in the official language of the country where you studied, along with an official translation in English. Documents directly issued in English are accepted. Note: We also accept documents in Swedish, Danish, and Norwegian without requiring a translation. Regarding documents issued in German or French, the Diploma may be issued in the original languague, but the official transcripts must be translated. 

When uploading documents:

  • You must upload your documents in PDF-format. We only accept PDFs.
  • Any documents that you scan for uploading must be from officially issued, original documents.
  • If the document is in colour, scan it in colour.
  • Remember to include all pages of documents, front and back, no matter what the content is on the page.
  • Be sure that everything on the document is visible on the scan, especially embossed stamps.

Naming the files

File names should only include characters: A-Z, and numbers: 0-9. No special characters are possible. Maximum of 45 characters in length.

Processing of the Application

  • Applicants will receive a confirmation via e-mail once an application has been placed.
  • The Admissions Office begins processing your application once the application is complete and all documents have been uploaded.

Offer of Acceptance and what to do next

  • If admitted, an offer will be sent via e-mail. The applicant must accept the offer through the link in the e-mail, in order to receive the Letter of Acceptance (also via e-mail) as well as further instructions.
  • If you are required to pay tuition fees (who is required to pay? Opens in new window.), the invoice of the first instalment equivalent to one semester tuition fee, will be available a few days after you have received the letter of acceptance. Please note that the invoice should be paid within 3-5 weeks. Your payment needs to reach us by the due date indicated on the invoice. Note: as we approach the application deadline, admitted students will have less than 5 weeks to pay the fee. This is due to the fact that the processing of an application for residence permit can take 2-5 months after the payment has been confirmed by Jönköping University. See the information about residence permit for study.

Country specific requirements for submitting documents

* If your degree was awarded in Bangladesh, Cameroon, Canada, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Nigeria, Sri Lanka or USA, an official transcript of record must be sent directly from your university to the Admissions Office, either in a sealed envelope or electronically to admissions.office@ju.se.
