Registration, course/programme start, syllabi and timetables


If you are enrolled in a programme, you must accept your place at to keep it.

You must register on the course you will be studying by the start of the semester or course at the latest, in order to show that you are an active student.

If you're enrolled in a programme, you must register for every new course within your programme. You register through Ladok for students. The registration opens one week before the start of the course. By registering, you show that you are an active student on the course.

Keep in mind that if you're taking a course that spans multiple semesters, you need to register at the start of each semester to demonstrate that you are still active on the course.

Course and programme introductions

In most cases, attendance is mandatory at the course/programme introduction and a requirement in order to be accepted as a student at Linnaeus University. If you are ill or have some other reason for absence, you must inform your faculty about this prior to the mandatory meeting.


The syllabus describes what your course/programme looks like and what it contains. You will also find information on course literature.

Register for your examination

You must register for the examination by Tuesday the week prior to the examination at the latest. NOTE! You can not make any late entries to examinations. You are not allowed to enter the examination room unless you are registered.

When you register for an examination through the system, you will receive a confirmation of your registration. It is not possible to sign up for an examination via your cell phone. You must sign up through the web, where you will also get a confirmation.

If you receive no confirmation, please contact your department promptly. On Wednesday the week prior to the examination, you will receive an email stating in what room the examination will take place.

The university tests a new anonymous examination system. Anonymous examination means the students receive a number or a code to enter on their exam instead of their name and personal number as before. Only certain students and examinations are included in this round of tests.
