Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the application process for studying in Sweden is a bit different for the autumn of 2020.
If you intend to apply for a residence permit through the Swedish Migration Agency (Migrationsverket) you must check with the university and verify when you must be on campus in Sweden.
Some universities are planning online courses during the fall semester.
Your application should be handed in maximum 90 days before you must attend the studies physically. You can´t be granted residence permit for a period when you are not studying on campus in Sweden.
