The admission for University West's international master's program has now been published and the first students have received their acceptance notices.

932 new master's students, from all over the world, have been admitted to programmes at University West for autumn 2023. Last year, the number of admitted students was 615, which means an increase of 51.5 percent this year. With that increase, University West ranks second on the list of the largest increase in the country.

Nationally, the number of admissions has increased by 6.7 percent, writes the Swedish Council for Higher Education.

“It feels amazing that we are seeing a large increase in international applicants to our master's programmes, also this year”, says Tomas Bengtsson, Director of International Affairs at University West. “It is especially nice that many of our engineering programmes have received more applicants, as we know that many of our partners are in great need of these skills.”

Some of the programmes that have increased the most in the number of admitted students are:

  • Master in Sustainable Development
  • Master in Leadership in Digitized Organizations.
  • Master in AI and Automation
  • Master in Manufacturing Engineering
  • Master in Cyber Security

Many of University West's international master's programmes are still open for late application. This means that the final number of admitted students to the university is not yet known. And on April 5, the admission for the international bachelor's programme International Program in Politics and Economics (IPPE) will be published.

“Now we work on getting the students well prepared for their arrival in August and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they won't have as big a problem with getting a residence permit as was the case in 2022”, concludes Tomas Bengtsson.
