Note: This page does not cover courses only given in Swedish, so if you are taking such courses please see also the Swedish version of this page.

If you are not yet a student at the Department of Mathematics but are considering applying, you might first want to read about our courses and programmes, and practical information for new and prospective students.

Course application for the autumn semester

Course application for the autumn semester has closed. If you applied to a course or programme in the second admission round (ending 15 April) you should have received a first notification of selection results on 11 July. If by 26 July you replied to this that you wanted to keep your place or reserve place, you should have received a second notification of selection results on 1 Augusti.

After 11 July you received a welcome letter by email if you are admitted to any of our courses. A pdf of this can be found below (one for general courses, and another for the Masters' Programme in Mathematics).

Register for courses

To keep you place on a course, you must register for the course online. You may need to activate your university account first.

Online registration for autumn courses opens on 6 August and closes on 23 August (courses with codes beginning with DA or BE) or 25 September (other courses).

Course pages

You can find all our course pages at Please note that activating your account on a course page is not the same as registering for the course!

Register for exams

If you want to take a written exam, you must sign up for it in advance no later than one week before the exam date.

To sign up for exams in August you must be registered for the latest term when the course was offered, usually the spring term. If you are not and wish to take an exam in August, contact, preferably well in advance (because of summer holidays).

More information on examinations, rules and sign-up. In particular, note that you must be able to show a valid photo ID at the time of the exam, and that you must be registered on the current term to be able to sign up for the exam.


If you have previously been registered for a course but did not complete it during that term, you will need to re-register in order to complete the course. Please contact the student affairs office for information.

Exchange studies

Students at the Department of Mathematics at Stockholm University have the possibility to study one or two semesters abroad. Please be aware that this takes some time to organise, so plan ahead.
