Covid-19 and teaching

Stockholm University switched to having no activities on campus from 18 March 2020, affecting teaching and examinations during the spring.

In the autumn it is possible to return to having some activities on campus, and you can read about our plans for the autumn of 2020 at Teaching at the Department of Mathematics autumn 2020.

Late application for courses

Courses in the spring can open for late application from 15 December. Note that on it says, for all courses, "Will open for late application 15 Dec 2020". However, only courses where there are places left will actually open.

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 courses usually opens a few weeks before the beginning of the semester. Please be aware that for some courses online registration is only open for a week or two. Online registration for the autumn 2020 is closed. Online registration for the spring 2021 opens on 28 December at the earliest, and once it is open you can see in Ladok when it closes.

Online registration for thesis projects

If you are admitted to a degree project in mathematics or computer science online registration is not possible, instead we register you after your project plan has been accepted. For degree projects in mathematical statistics, you register online.

Conditionally admitted

If you do not quite fulfil the entry requirements for a course, but might do so before it begins, you may be conditionally admitted. Read more about this here:

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 eight days 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, that you must be registered on the current term to be able to sign up for the exam, and you cannot take exams without having signed up for them.


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.
