You might be curious about your chances of admission if you have or plan to apply to the bachelor’s program in biomedicine. I’ll analyze the statistics from previous years in this blog.
DISCLAIMER: Only after your formal application has been submitted can a decision regarding it be made that is official and legally binding. This blog does not aim to make a decision; it only seeks to provide information. Also, keep in mind that because of my imperfect Swedish, my translations might be questionable; the most accurate and recent information can be found on the original websites I’ve cited.
I’ll be covering the fundamentals of admission selection, data for first-round applicants, and some Swedish vocabulary to help you navigate admissions information in this blog.
