Late application for Spring 2019

Some courses where there are still places available will open for late application 14-21 December. You apply through universityadmissions.se as usual.

Welcome notes

If you are admitted to one of our courses you will have received a welcome note by email on 12 December. If you have not received it, please check that it has not been marked as spam and if you still cannot find it please contact matematik-i@math.su.se.

Registering 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.

You can register for most of our courses between 7 January - 17 February, however there are some exceptions:

  • The courses with course codes DA3018, DA3020 and DA7064: 7-18 January
  • All other courses with codes beginning with DA or BE: 7-11 January
  • Some courses only given in Swedish, for details see the Swedish page.

Courses beginning during the second part of term will open for registration again later in the spring.

Course pages

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

Applying for exams

If you want to take a written exam, you must sign up for it in advance no later than 5 working days before the exam date (note that this can be more than one week). For exams taking place between 9-14 January 2019, the last day to sign up is 20 December.

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.
