Admission, application and eligibility
Application to our courses is done in different ways depending on whether you are a program student at KTH or if you wish to read the course as an independent student. You have to apply for the course the right way for us to treat your application. To be admitted and registered you have to qualify for the course.
The eligibility requirements consist of two parts: basic eligibility and specific eligibility. There is a link on each course page on the RCN homepage leading to the eligibility information.
Application for program students
Program students at KTH apply via their program advisor. Application to courses for program students vary between the different programs and courses which is why it is important that you check what the case is for your program.
Application for independent students
Depending on which course you apply for you apply via studera.nu or local admission.
