Other things that are good to keep an eye on when you start:
Withdrawal and Leave from Studies
Early withdrawal from a course - 3 weeks from course start
If you are registered for a single course (not an entire programme), you can exercise what is called 'early withdrawal' during the first 3 weeks the course is offered. If you decide to withdraw from your studies early, it is possible to apply and be admitted to the same course again through www.universityadmissions.se. Early withdrawal is not possible if you have already completed any exams or assignments as part of the course.
You can either enter the early withdrawal in your student record in Student Ladok or contact the students office to register the early withdrawal manually.
If you do not withdraw from a course within the first three weeks, you can only be re-registered for the course if there is space.
Where to register Withdrawal:
Registration certificates and other documents
If you have questions about registration, contact our student offices on the subject you are going to study:
