The Department of Information Technology at Uppsala University is world leading in computer science research. Courses are taught by experts in their field and are always up to date.
We teach in an international environment that provides you with a worldwide network of professional contacts: researchers, teachers and fellow students.
You have a strong foundation in computer science and you might even have some practical experience working in the field after graduation but not so long so you have forgotten your broad theoretical base and study techniques. You are no stranger to mathematics and algorithms and are looking for an educational experience that will give you long term benefits and a skillset that lasts.
You are independent, self-going and extremely motivated and willing to take a lot of responsibility yourself to form your own educational experience, as well as for your future professional career. You like to have many options and a freedom of choice when it comes to courses and specialisation.
A future PhD education is a possibility you might have thought about, but starting to work right after graduation is also something you are considering. You like to keep your options open for now.
The programme leads to a Master of Science (120 credits) with Computer Science as the main field of study.
A Bachelor’s degree, equivalent to a Swedish Kandidatexamen, from an internationally recognised university.
Also required is:
- 90 credits in computer science, including programming, algorithms, data structures, computer architecture and operating systems; and
- 30 credits in mathematics.
All applicants need to verify English language proficiency that corresponds to English studies at upper secondary (high school) level in Sweden (“English 6”). This can be done in a number of ways, including through an internationally recognised test such as TOEFL or IELTS, or through previous upper secondary (high school) or university studies.
The minimum test scores are:
- IELTS: an overall mark of 6.5 and no section below 5.5
- TOEFL: Paper-based: Score of 4.5 (scale 1–6) in written test and a total score of 575. Internet-based: Score of 20 (scale 0–30) in written test and a total score of 90
- Cambridge: CAE, CPE
Selection: Students are selected based on:
- a total appraisal of quantity and quality of previous university studies; and
- a statement of purpose (1 page).
Tuition fee-paying students and non-paying students are admitted on the same grounds but in different selection groups.
If you are not a citizen of a European Union (EU) or European Economic Area (EEA) country, or Switzerland, you are required to pay application and tuition fees. Fees cover application and tuition only and do not cover accommodation, academic literature or the general cost of living. Read more about fees.
