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.

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.

Course application for the spring semester

Course application for the spring semester has closed. Late application opens 13 December for courses that still have places available.

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 spring courses opens on 7 January, and will close as early as 12 January for some courses, namely those with a course code beginning with DA or BE except DA3018 Computer science for mathematicians. For other courses, online registration remains open until 9 February.

Courses in mathematics or mathematical statistics that start in the second half of term will have a second online registration period around the middle of the semester.

Online registration for thesis projects

If you are admitted to a thesis project in mathematical statistics (at bachelor or master level), you must register for that course online between 7 January and 9 February.

For other thesis projects online registration is not possible, instead we register you after your project plan has been accepted.

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!

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.
