Which courses you should apply for

Before the course application process begins, you will receive information regarding requirements from your program study counsellor or master coordinator. For example, information regarding specific prerequisites for courses and which courses are mandatory.

You can see which courses are included in your programme syllabus. You will also find application codes and more information about the courses, such as the number of places, the language of instruction and study location.

Find Programme Syllabus (Course and programme directory)

You are responsible for applying for the courses in your programme's curriculum and ensuring that you meet the entrance qualifications. The fact that it is possible to apply for a course does not necessarily mean that it is relevant to your particular programme studies. You may register for a maximum of 8 courses and be admitted to courses that total 35 credits.

Register for the right course

Please note that there may be more than one course instance with the same course name. Make sure that you are registering for the course within your programme. If you get a search result of more than one course instance for the course you are applying for, ensure that the correct registration period is indicated and that it does not say that the course is open for late registration. Courses open for late registration are freestanding courses, not programme courses.

Previously registered

You may not sign up for a course you have previously been registered for. You cannot be admitted to the same course more than once. Instead, contact your study counsellor or master coordinator regarding the possibility of retaking or continuing the course, if space allows.

Cancelled courses

KTH may cancel a course for several reasons. For instance, if there are few applicants or other obstacles occur, it may be impossible for KTH to offer the course. When a course is cancelled you will be informed via the Notification of Results or from the school providing the course, depending on when the course is cancelled.
