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 spring semester

Course application for the spring semester is open 16 September to 15 October.

If you are taking an entire programme rather than stand-alone courses, please find out which courses you should be taking in the spring. You should receive information about this early in the application period.

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.

If you want to study abroad during the spring 2020, you must apply by 20 September, 4 October or 1 November (depending on where you want to go). See When do I apply? for more information.

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 has in some cases closed, those still open will close on 25 September. Courses in the second part of the semester, starting in early November, will open again for online registration around that time.

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.

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.
