New rules for contract education and specialist education

From July 1, 2020, new rules apply for those who are going to study contract education and specialist education.

The new rules mean that these types of education are no longer included in other studies but are a new category of studies. This means changes in the requirements for those who are going to take one of these programmes.

At first you will not be able to apply via an e-service, but must submit your application on a paper form. The Swedish Migration Agency is working to develop an e-service for these types of cases.
