Semester and term dates from the autumn semester 2017

Registration may take place before the official start of the semester

After you have been admitted to a course you will need to confirm your enrollment through a registration before the start of the semester. Sometimes the registration takes place some days before the official starting date of the semester - make sure you know when you have your registration before you book your flight to Sweden.

Stockholm University has a decentralised organisation which means that there are different ways of registering depending on which department you will be studying with. You will be given information from the respectively department on how and when to register. If you do not recieve information regarding registration and if there is no information about registration dates on the departmental website, please contact the department directly. You can find a list of all departments at su.se/departments
