Registration - step by step

University College Stockholm is connected to the national grading system LADOK where courses and grades are registered. We also use the Canvas learning platform for course homepages where you can find general information about the course, see and submit assignments and find the course literature. It is essential therefore for all students to be able to log in to both Ladok and Canvas. Unless you do so, you will not be able to participate in your course or program.

To log in to Ladok and Canvas, students with a Swedish personal identification number should first obtain an eduID. This is a digital identification system. Gaining an eduID can take one or two weeks so it is essential that you register with eduID as soon as possible after acceptance. Details of how you apply can be found below.

If you do not have a Swedish personal identification number you cannot obtain an eduID and you will need to register for Ladok  and Canvas through the course administrator which you should do as soon as possible after confirmation of your place (kursadministrator@ehs.se).

Required course literature

For the successful completion of your studies it is essential to have access to the course literature. You should try to obtain course literature well in advance of the start of each course. The library at University College Stockholm has course literature that can be borrowed, but only for short periods. Certain course books and papers are also made available as reference-only material which means that they can be read only in the library. Students based in Södertälje should know that on average it takes one hour fifteen minutes to travel between Södertälje Central station and Brommaplan station and that the journey by public transport will cost about 40 Swedish Kronor each way.  Many students buy their own key course literature.

Here are some helpful links:

Lectures and seminars for on-campus students 

Note that class attendance is mandatory for all on campus courses. This includes lectures as well as seminars and group work.

 

Lectures and seminars for distance students

Discontinuation

If you register for a course, but are unable to start or complete the course, it is important that this is reported to kursadministrator@ehs.se as soon as possible.

 

If you have a long-term disability

If you have a documented long-term disability that affects your studies, you can apply for special learning support. The application should be made in a system called NAIS. It is important that you upload necessary documentation supporting your disability with your digital application. All documentation is kept confidential. Here is a link to the website: NAIS

Student Union and compulsory membership fee

The Student Union participates actively in the educational development at University College Stockholm. Membership in the student union is mandatory. The membership fee (SEK 150 per semester for on-campus students and SEK 100 per term for distance students) is paid a few weeks after the start of the semester when an invoice is sent by e-mail to all students. More information about this can be found here (in Swedish): Student union membership.

We also send a record of all registered students to Studentkortet, who provide all students with a student card that gives access to a wide range of special offers and discounts for students.

 

Student information via e-mail

The university uses e-mail to send information to you. We send to the email address you have entered on universityadmissions.se or antagning.se and therefore it is important that you keep your contact information updated there.
