By registering for a course, you are indicating that you will attend the course you have been admitted to. You must register in order to access the course in KTH's learning platform Canvas, register for exams, and have your results reported. It is also a prerequisite to obtaining student aid paid out by CSN.
Register via Ladok
Before a course starts, you must register for the courses you are admitted to or you risk losing your spot. Register via Ladok under the heading Register.
You will find the dates when registration is open for your course in Ladok. Registration periods differ for programme courses and freestanding courses. You can find information about registration periods further down this page.
Remember that you must have registered to maintain access to your courses after the web registration period.
For courses that last longer than one semester, for example, courses that start in the autumn semester and continue into the spring semester, you will have to register again (a continued registration).
Registration periods for course registration
You will find the registration period for your course in Ladok. The course registration periods differ between programme courses and freestanding courses. Here you can navigate directly to your type of course:

Programme courses starting after the first week of the study period
Programme courses starting outside the study periods are open for web registration from Thursday the week before the study period starts until Monday the week after the starting week of the course.
