To apply to the Universities in Sweden, Indian students can apply through the website of Swedish University Application website, and the other requirements will change with the courses and universities. 

The following are the criteria for obtaining a master’s degree from a Swedish university:

A bachelor’s degree from an internationally recognized university comparable to the Swedish Kandidatexamen (Swedish degree) is required.
Proficiency in English: Obtain a satisfactory IELTS or TOEFL score.

Let me inform you many master's level courses, and programmes require the completion of specific bachelor's programmes or courses in particular subject areas. Therefore, they're most often related to the subject of the course or programme you've applied for.
