Application process

Gendering Practices have two application rounds each spring. One for students outside the EU/EEA are, and one for students within the EU/EEA area. 

We strongly recommend all applicants from countries outside the EU/EEA to apply in the first application round as the application deadlines and decisions come several months before the semester starts. This permits you time to apply for and receive your resident permit (if needed) and arrange for housing.

Students within the EU can choose to apply in either the first or second application round and Swedish students should seek in the second application round.

First application round

The application process contain two steps. Firstly, apply via the national application website University Admissions. Secondly, send us your finished and passed Bachelor's thesis (in pdf.). The pdf should clearly state your name and the name of the University in which you graduated. Send your thesis to Student Affairs Office and wait for a confirmation that we have recieved your thesis.

Deadlines:
15 January 2020: last day to apply.
1 March 2020: The last day to send in your thesis and other complementary documents.
3 April 2020: Your application decision will be published at University Admissions.

Late application

Criteria for evaluation of Bachelor’s thesis

Students that have written a Bachelor’s thesis in a discipline other than Gender Studies will go through an evaluation process to secure the level of knowledge in the field of gender and feminist theory. The evaluation is based on the Bachelor’s thesis, and conducted by the programme co-ordinator. To be up for evaluation the thesis has to be written in Swedish or in English.

The following criteria will be used during the evaluation process:

  • The aim of the thesis should be formulated in such a way that the gender relevance is pronounced. Theses with an aim that is explicitly oriented towards a gender theoretical field will have precedence.
     
  • The description and application of the study’s theoretical framework has to relate to and make explicit use of relevant gender theory within the field.

Language requirements

Gendering Practices: Master’s Programme is based on courses given in English, hence there are specific language requirements to secure the level of knowledge in English. International students will have to verify their knowledge of English.

The following groups of students meet the language requirements without further evaluation:

  • Students with a Bachelor’s degree from a Swedish university
     
  • Students with a Bachelor’s degree from a country where higher education is held in English

 

The following group of students have to verify their knowledge of English:

  • Students with a Bachelor’s degree from a country where higher education is held in another language than English
