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.

All re-exams in August will be held online.

Late application for courses autumn 2020

Courses that begin in November (part CD of the autumn semester) may open for late application if they have places left. If so, application will be open in late October, around the week before the courses start.

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 opens on 5 August, and closes at different times for different courses.

The last day for online registration is 21 August for courses with prefix DA or BE that are given jointly with KTH, i.e., the following courses:

  • BE3009 Applied numerical methods
  • Courses on advanced level with prefix DA or BE

For other courses the last day for online registration is 13 September if the course begins in the first half of the semester (AB) or 15 November if it begins in the second half of the semester (CD).

Online registration for thesis projects

If you are admitted to a thesis project online registration is not possible, instead we register you after your project plan has been accepted.

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 that it is no longer possible to 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.
