Study with a disability
If you have a disability that means that you may need some form of support in the study situation, you must first contact a coordinator at the University. There is special educational support for you who have a disability, such as ADHD, hearing loss or dyslexia. The support is always designed individually based on your needs. Examples of support are software, note-taking help or customized examinations.

How do I say no to my place?
If you've started a course and have decided that you no longer wish to attend, you must contact the Academic Advisor to withdraw. See contact information at the bottom of this page.
Deferral of study commencement
If you have been admitted but cannot start the program that semester, you can apply for a deferral of study commencemen. The reason for deferral must normally have arisen after the end of the notification period.
Skip semester (program only)
If you are newly admitted to a program and have already studied courses that are part of the program, you can, if there are place, start at a later part of the programme.
You must contact the Academic Advisor for more information.
If you have previous studies within the framework of your education at Stockholm University you can apply for a credit transfer of theses courses.
I am conditionally admitted
Being accepted with conditions means that you did not fulfill the eligibility requirement when applying for the course module or programme. You then have until the start of the semester to fulfill your eligibility. You need to show that you are eligible to be registered on the course module or programme you applied for.
Students who are required to pay tuition fees will be listed as 'Conditionally admitted' on their Notification of Selection Results. Your status will still be listed as 'Conditionally admitted' even after you've paid the tuition fee. This is because our computer system can't record when a student has paid the first instalment to their university.
I am placed on a waiting list
If you were placed on a waiting list, the university may review your application after admissions selection and award you a place.
If you've been offered a place from the waiting list you'll receive an email from University Admissions that you've been offered a place. You can view your Notification of Selection Results in your account here at Universityadmissions.se.
You will also receive an email with information from SBS.
If you don't wish to keep the place, please be sure to decline it so that it can be made available to someone else.
If you accept your place, all further contact will be made with Stockholm Business School.

The Marketing Academy induces creative and innovative marketers."
