Course registration

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.

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).

Re-registration

If you have previously taken a course without having passed the result, you can send in a request to get re-registered in Ladok. Here you can read more about how it works and send in your request.

Is the course registration closed?

In some cases, the registration may have closed when you need to register for a course. Here you can apply to be registered if the course registration is closed.
