Programs planned to resume in 2015; currently enrolled students unaffected

In December, Stockholm University Faculty of Law decided to suspend its master's-level programs until at least autumn 2015. This decision concerns programs scheduled to begin in autumn 2014, and does not affect students currently enrolled.

According to the university, applications to the programs for 2014-15 will not be processed, and application fees paid for affected programs will be refunded upon request.

"The background to this decision concerns a 2012 re-accreditation process carried out by the Swedish Higher Education Authority, which is part of a wider review," said the school. "As a result of this process, it has been decided to suspend the master's programs for one year in order to allow for certain structural and administrative changes to be made to further enhance the high quality of the programs."

Stockholm University plans for a relaunch of its law masters programs in autumn 2015, with the application process opening this fall.
