Admission requirements for euSYSBIO
To qualify for the euSYSBIO programme applicants need to fulfill the admission requirements based on previous studies, English proficiency and documentation. Please note that the admission requirements can vary for each Erasmus Mundus Master’s Programme.
1. Previous studies: A completed Bachelor's degree
Applicants must have completed a Bachelor’s degree encompassing a minimum of 180 ECTS credits or equivalent academic qualifications from an internationally recognized university and have taken the following subjects: multivariate calculus, linear algebra and computer science including programming.
Students in their final year of undergraduate education may also apply and if qualified, receive a conditional offer. If you have not completed your studies, please include a written statement from the degree administration office (or equivalent department), confirming that you are enrolled on the final year of your education and giving your expected completion date. If you receive a conditional offer, you should present your degree certificate to the Admissions Office before enrollment at the latest. Applicants following longer technical programmes and who have completed courses equivalent to an amount of 180 ECTS, will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
2. Language requirements: Proof of English proficiency
Applicants must provide proof of their English language proficiency, which is most commonly established through an internationally recognized test.
A minimum overall mark of 6.5 is required, with no section lower than 5.5 (only Academic Training accepted). IELTS-tests are verified online by KTH admissions office, sending a photocopy of your test together with your application documents is therefore sufficient.

You must provide this code in order for your results to be reported to University Admissions. When sending your score, you can choose any school type and department for University Admissions; it does not matter which one you select.
