General information about course registration

A course registration indicates your intention to attend the course that you have been admitted to. Registration is necessary so that you can get access to the course in Canvas, register for exams and your results can be reported. It is also a prerequisite in order to obtain student aid which is paid out by CSN.

Course registration

Before the start of a course you have to register via the web. You find the web registration function via Ladok for students   (Home page - Register).

Keep in mind 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).
