Course and examination
Follow this step-by-step guide to find out what you need to do before and during the reading period when it comes to your courses and examination.
Once per semester
Register for courses within the programme
Once a semester, you must register for the courses within your programme that you will follow during the next semester.
During each study period
1. Register for the course
At the start of the course, you must register for the course to inform KTH that you intend to take the course you have been admitted to.
If you need to register for the course again, you must submit a re-registration notification.
2. Prepare course start and read course memo
Before starting the course, you should read the course memo, which contains information about the course structure, schedule and contact details.
3. Log in to the course room
Once you have registered for a course, you can access the course room in Canvas.
Canvas is the LMS (Learning Management System) used for all course offerings at KTH. In Canvas, you will find course material and assignments and can keep in touch with teachers and fellow students.
4. Prepare for the exam
At KTH, different forms of examination apply in different courses. Some courses apply written exams to check that students have attained the knowledge and skill goals set for the course. In other courses, students' knowledge will be tested through an assignment or project task.
Before the exam, read the course memo about the course exam. For many exams, you must register for the exam in Ladok for students. You have to register in advance for all written exams and minor tests, for example, partial exams held during an exam period.
5. Find the final grade
Once you have passed all modules of a course, you will find your final grade for the course in Ladok for Students. The final grade in Ladok should not be confused with the function Grades in Canvas, which your teacher use to give feedback on assignments during your course.
6. Participate in course evaluation
During the course, the course coordinator or teacher will conduct a course evaluation in which you will give your views and experiences of the course. It is essential that you participate so that KTH can evaluate and improve the course.
