Structure of the education
The Academic year in Sweden consists of an autumn and a spring term. The structure of the academic year, semesters and other study periods are described at the attached link.
The educational structure at KTH. The academic year covers 40 weeks, starting in September divided into two terms, which each consists of two study periods (KTH-Handbook 2, Flap 4.2). Each study period concludes with a regular examination period of at least one week.
The programme is course-based. Lists of courses are included in Appendix 1: Course list
Courses in the first and the second cycle are graded on a scale from A to F. A-E are passing grades, A is the highest grade. The grades pass (P) and fail (F) are used for courses under certain circumstances.

You must also pay your Student Union dues at the start of each semester in order to enrol in the programme. In addition to signing an attendance list at the beginning of a course, participation in class exercises and projects are a compulsory part of enrolling in any course.
The prerequisite for starting the Master’s Project is completed courses corresponding to 60 credits.
Conditions for being promoted to the next level
For studies in study year 2:At least 45 higher education credits from study year 1 must be completed by the exam period in August. Students which have not fulfilled this requirement must set up an individual study plan. The main goal with the study plan is that the student should complete the remaining courses during the next study year. In the study plan, the remaining elements and also suitable courses from the next study year are included. Special regard should be taken to the courses prerequisites.
Recognition of previous academic studies
The Royal Institute of Technology has a policy for recognising previous academic studies. The decision on recognising documented results from similar education at other universities is taken by the vice dean of education at the School of Architecture and the Build Environment upon application by the student.
There are at present not possible for Master’s students at the school of Architecture and the Build Environment to exchange semester one, two or three for studies abroad.
The Degree Project (30 credits) is compulsory in order to apply for a Master Degree at KTH. The Master’s project for students at Infrastructure Engineering is within Highway Engineering, Soil and Rock Mechanics or Bridge and Railway Track Engineering, or other subject closely related to Infrastructure Engineering. The prerequisite for starting the degree project is completed courses corresponding to 60 credits.
Students who have successfully completed the programme will be awarded a "Teknologie masterexamen", translated into English as "Degree of Master of Science (two years)". The student must apply for the degree certificate. Before application all courses should be completed and reported. Documents to hand in to Masters administrator are: 1) The application form; 2) A copy of student union card, copy of receipts or a certificate from the student union office; 3) Attested photocopy of the previous university degree.
