Checklist for admitted students

  1. Activate your university account

    The first step in being able to register and gain access to all the university's IT services.

  2. Register at your department

    Registration can be done in different ways. Read the instructions from your department below.

  3. Read all the information on this page

    Here you will find what you need to know before your course or programme starts.

IMPORTANT

Your seat may be withdrawn if you do not register according to the instructions provided by your department.

Information from the department - courses

In order to get you off to a good start, we have gathered the important things you need to know here. Read through carefully and if you have any questions, please contact us.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you are registered on the correct course. If you do not register then your place can go to a reserve (see Registration). In good time before registration, you must check if you are eligible with conditions. If you have conditions you cannot register (see Eligible with conditions). If you do not want the place, however, it is important that you decline your place as soon as possible, so that someone else can get the chance to go the course (see Declining your place). See also below for information on studying with a disability and if you are placed as reserve.

Eligible with conditions

If you did not meet all the eligibility requirements for the course when you applied then you are eligible with conditions. It is stated in your acceptance letter from Universityadmissions.se if you are eligible with conditions. In that case, you cannot register as the department must first assess your eligibility.

Check the requirements under "Eligibility" here on the course page. To qualify, all requirements must be met before the course starts.

As soon as you meet the requirements, send a message to our student office with the following information:

  • Subject line: Conditional admission
  • Your name
  • Which course(s) you are admitted to

If you have questions about your condition, you can contact our student office.

Registration

Our courses generally apply online registration. To be able to register online, your student account must be activated and any conditions assessed. In order to maintain your place on the course, you must register within the registration period.

Registration periods in autumn 2022:

  • Registration for all courses opens 8th August and closes one week before the course starts (temporarily closed 19th-29th August).
  • Traineeships, research traineeships and degree projects are open for registration throughout the semester (see more below).

If you have trouble registering, please contact our student office before the last registration day. Otherwise you will loose your place on the course.

Register online

Traineeship and research traineeship

If you submitted your work plan for traineeship or research traineeship, or your research idea for degree project, before the deadline and had it approved, you have been admitted to the course and can register, provided you meet any conditions (see "Eligible with conditions" above). If you  submitted your work plan / research idea after the deadline, you have been placed as reserve and will be admitted as soon as it has been approved. If you have not yet submitted your work plan / research idea, you can read more about this further down on this page under "More information / How to apply".

Studying with a disability

If you need special pedagogical support, you can apply for support measurs. You should apply as soon as possible after you have been admitted to take advantage of the best possible support.

Read how to apply for support

Once you have your Nais certificate, contact the study counsellor for a meeting where we will go through the recommended support measured. After the meeting, you should contact the course coordinators for the courses you will attend and inform them that you have been granted support, so that they can prepare well.

Declining your place

If you no longer want your place, it is important that you decline your place so that another applicant can get the place. Please note that you can only decline your place at Universityadmissions.se before the registration period begins. After the course has opened for registration and three weeks after the course has started, you can decline in Ladok. Declining the place later than three weeks after the start of the course is counted as having dropped the course. If you drop the course you will not be able to apply for the course again.

Declining your place at universityadmissions.se

Reserve place

If you have been given a reserve place you may be admitted if someone declines their place. If there is cause for reserve admission then you will receive notice one to two weeks before the course starts. For traineeships, research traineeships and degre projects see more information above.
