Applying for programmes

Note: Application deadline for international students is January 15. (For Swedish students it is April 15.)

Applying to courses

Who must apply for courses?

All students must apply to all courses, even though they are within the programme.

How do I apply?
  • If you are already a master student at this department, please see this page.
  • If you are an exchange student, please contact our exchange student coordinator Ulrika Jaresund.
  • If you are any other kind of student from abroad, apply through
Late application (not for exchange students)

It may be possible to apply for courses even after the deadline. Late applicants are admitted if there are places left after the regular admission is completed. It will be possible to make a late application from December 15.

Registration and removal of registration

Please note, that in all e-mail contact with us, state your name, person number and the course it concerns.


We use web registration via the Student Portal for all our courses.
By using web registration you confirm that you intend to take the course.
Web registration can be done between certain dates which you see once you have logged in to the Student portal. You can also find the dates on your letter of admission (the second one).
After that, we register you formally in Uppdok. This is done on five occasions - the last one after the registration deadline, approximately 2 weeks into the course.
Ergo - if you have web registered early, you will be formally registered before the course starts.

If you are admitted with a condition, the student counsellors will check your background. If it's ok you will be registered, if it's not ok, the counsellor will contact you.

As a student here you need a student account (UpUnet-S-konto), there are four different ways to apply for it, read how [2].

There will be no possibility to sign on a list at the first lecture of the course, only web registration.
If you haven't had any possibility to register via the web, contact [3].

Removal of registration

If you want to deregister you must report to the Student Office IMMEDIATELY!.

As important as it is to register to courses you take, as important is it to ask us to remove your registration, if you change your mind about taking the course.
If you terminate your studies within three weeks after the course has started, we will remove your registration and you will be able to apply to the course again.
If you terminate your studies after three weeks after the course started, we will make a note of termination for that course in Uppdok (the student register at Uppsala university). This means that you cannot get any results reported for the course and you cannot apply to the course again. If you want to take the course later on, you can talk to a student counsellor about it. In case the class isn't full, it is possible to remove the note and you can re-register for the course.

  • You need to have an UpUnet-S-account to be able to register in Studentportalen. There you can see which courses you've been admitted to and between which dates it is possible to register.
  • Re-registration - If you haven't finished a course and wish to re-register - contact the student counsellors. Please note that re-registrations are only possible as far as space allows.
  • Exchange students: After checking with our exchange student coordinator that you are accepted to the course, then you register in the Student Portal. If this for some reason isn't possible, contact our exchange student coordinator again.
  • If you have any questions, please e-mail the Student Office (IT-kansliet).
