Prospective students from Sweden

We welcome applicants from Sweden who would like to apply for a place here at Christ's College. We also welcome teachers and guidance counselors at schools in Sweden to get in touch if you have questions about supporting students from your school who would like to apply to Christ's College.

Entry requirements

Typical offers for Christ's applicants taking the Examensbevis or Högskoleförberedande examen gymnasieskolan (Fullständigt / utökat program) require a total of at least 2500 points, with A grades in the majority of relevant subjects, including in three or more specified subjects.

Students taking the International Baccalaureate would normally need to achieve 42 points overall (including bonus points), with 7,7,6 in Higher Level subjects. See the information about taking the IB in Sweden.

Offers for Mathematics include STEP II and III. Offers for Engineering and Chemical Engineering via Engineering include STEP I. Further information about STEP and preparation support is available on the relevant subject page.


English Language requirements

If English is not your first language, we will look at your grades for English at school and also assess your language skills during the various elements of the Cambridge application process. We may include an English requirement in an offer if a candidate's English seems variable at interview, or in an at-interview admissions assessment. This is more common in essay-based subjects.

If you are given an English Language condition, the standard requirements are on the university website, and you would have about seven months to meet the condition after your offer is made in January.

NB. Some UK universities do routinely include TOEFL, IELTS and comparable qualifications in offers to students from Sweden, so if you already hold such a qualification, you should mention it in your UCAS application.
