Required Documents for Application

Admissions Criteria

To apply to the Master School, you are required to upload the following documents into the application portal.

Note that you need to submit a complete application package consisting of the following documents before the application deadline.

  1. Degree Certificate/Diploma in its original language AND translated into English (If your university does not provide this service, the translation has to be done by an authorized translator and his/her credentials, signature and stamps must be visible in the translated document). In case of on-going studies, a statement certifying that you are in the final year of your studies. The statement must be written by the degree administration office (or equivalent department), confirming that you are enrolled on the final year of your education and giving your expected completion date.
  2. Official and stamped transcript of records in original language and translated into English. All courses taken must be included. Please scan the front and back of every document- all stamps and signatures must be fully visible.
  3. Proof of English proficiency. Please refer to the ‘Admissions criteria’ for more information.
  4. Curriculum Vitae including details on your academic and professional career.
  5. A letter of motivation in which you prove your innovative potential. For this purpose we ask you to discuss or propose an entrepreneurial idea. The letter can be addressed to the "Selection committee". How you describe your entrepreneurial idea is up to you. Perhaps you can identify a problem in your area of interest and propose products or services to address the problem/insufficiency/lack. Feel free to include your personal and professional reasons for wanting to join the EIT Digital Master's programme in the letter (perhaps in the summary), but all in all the letter should not be longer than two pages. We recommend that you include a motivation letter for the second programme of your choice if you are applying to two programmes. The same entrepreneurial idea can be developed in the two motivation letters for the two programmes. You can merge the two letters into 1 pdf file. 
  6. An official colour ID such as passport or National ID.
  7. Optional: Document stating the GPA or the Relative Ranking.
  8. Please notice that, from the moment you are admitted, your university will contact you to complete the formalities for enrolment and might request additional documents from you.

Please upload the original version of your degree certificate and transcript of records. If this is not possible, photo copies of your degree certificate, transcript of records and statements should be stamped and signed by the degree administrations office (or equivalent department) of the issuing institution, or by a Notary Public.  Please note that we do not accept documents after the deadline. All documents must be uploaded/come in before the deadline in order for us to process your application.

Applications that are not supported by official documents will not be processed. 

Statements made by professors or the heads of departments are not accepted.

Applications with fraudulent documents will invariably be rejected.

All admitted students must present the original Transcript of records and Degree Certificate/Diploma before enrolment.

If you choose POLIMI as one of your entry preferences and you have a non-Italian degree (or you are completing your bachelor's outside Italy), you need to submit an additional application on POLIMI's Online Services for the Master of Science in "Computer Science and Engineering", in parallel with your EIT Digital application. For instructions and local deadlines for your POLIMI application, please refer to their dedicated website::

Country Specific Documentation Requirements

Please read carefully the instructions hereunder if you conducted your bachelor's in the following countries: Pakistan, Bangladesh, Cameroon, Canada, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Ghana, Nigeria or USA.


Degrees awarded in Pakistan need to be attested by the Higher Education Commission in Pakistan. Colour copies are accepted but they MUST bear the original HEC stamp and not a copy of the stamp. Each page of the transcript of records as well as the degree certificate has to be stamped and signed by HEC and must include: your name; your father's name; your personal identity number; the name of the university and your degree.

In case of on-going studies, the current/latest version of your transcript of records must be stamped and signed by HEC. You must contact the HEC and ask them to verify your qualifications. You must send the verified documents to:

KTH Admissions Office
Att: EIT Digital Master School Office
Brinelllvägen 8
SE-100 44 Stockholm

The verified documents must be sent in an envelope sealed by HEC. We only accept documents attested after 1 March 2009, for reasons of verification. The verification process can take a long time. It is therefore important that you apply early and ensure that your study documents will be sent to Sweden as early as possible. Incomplete applications will not be processed.

Bangladesh, Cameroon, Canada, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Ghana, Nigeria or USA

For degrees/transcripts from Bangladesh, Cameroon, Canada, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Ghana, Nigeria or USA an official transcript of records and a certified true copy of the degree (in case of ongoing studies the latest transcript of records) must be sent in a sealed envelope directly from the issuing university to:

KTH Admissions Office
Att: EIT Digital Master School Office
Brinelllvägen 8
SE-100 44 Stockholm


Please note that students with a Chinese nationality admitted to a university in the Netherlands must submit a Nuffic certificate at the time of application for a Dutch entry visa. The Nuffic certificate is not required to be submitted during the application process.

Please check your country specific documentation requirements here. You should not send any documents to "University Admissions" in Sweden but to the EIT Digital Master School office.

It is every prospective student´s responsibility to make sure their application is correct and complete.
