Registration

About re-registration

If you have not fulfilled the requirements for a course /course module within the semester that you were registered, you may re-register another semester. Contact the Student Office at studentexpedition@statsvet.su.se. You can re-register to a course during the whole semester, however, no later than two weeks before an exam or a seminar that you want to attend. Please note that re-registered students can only participate in lectures and seminars if there is a place available. A first-time-registered student will always be provided a place prior to a re-registered student. Well attended courses can therefore be difficult to fulfill if you decide to continue your studies a later semester.

About intermission

If you want to take a break in your studies, or if you plan not to finish the course at all, we need a written request for this. You can write to us via regular mail or e-mail. State name, civic registration number and which course you wish to register an intermission for. Send this to the Student Office (studentexpedition@statsvet.su.se). If you do not intend to get back to your studies we will register discontinuance. During the first three weeks of the semester we can register a so called ”early discontinuance”. This means that you may apply to the course again in the future.

Application

Most of our courses and programs have the same procedure and last date for applying. However, it may vary. You will find more information about each particular course and program on:application

To take your exam you have to show a valid identification, otherwise you will not be permitted to take the exam. Please note that you do not need to sign up for take-home exams.

Do I have to re-register to take a re-exam?

Yes, unless the re-exam takes place the same semester as you are enrolled to the course.

For how long are my seminar results valid?

In some courses you will be examined in compulsory seminars and seminar assignments, as well as an exam at the end. If you have fulfilled the seminars and these assignments but not the exam, the following will apply;
The seminars and the seminar assignments are valid up to three semesters after your first semester of enrolment on the course. This means that you must take your exam within this period. If you do not do so, you will have to attend all seminars and do all the seminar assignments again.

Where do I find information on where an examination will be held?

You will find the information about which room an examination will be held in on MONDO, under “Announcements”.

Do I have to fulfill a course within a certain time span?

Yes, for a course to be valid in your degree it must have been fulfilled no later than five years after the first semester you enrolled. For a bachelor thesis, the time span is ten years. If you have not fulfilled the requirements within this time frame, you must apply to the course again and re-take the missed course module.
