Bachelors degree programme in sciences – instructions for HT2021
Please note that all those who are admitted to the Bachelor’s degree programme at the Faculty of Science must sign up for courses before the start of each semester, and you apply at Antagning.se. Always register for a few alternative course options as it is hard to get a place on some courses. Opportunities for late registration are also limited. Don’t forget to confirm attendance when you get your notification of admission!
Please start by reading the general instructions for applying to courses within a study programme down below.
Guaranteed place to compulsory courses
On the Bachelor’s degree programme in Science, you have a guaranteed place on the compulsory courses within the specialisation to which you have been admitted, on condition that you meet the entry requirements, that you have registered on the course within the programme specialisation for the relevant semester and that you reply to the notification of admission confirming attendance. You will find the compulsory courses on your department’s website.
Once they have completed the block of basic courses, programme students are guaranteed places on one of the courses within the programme on condition that they have registered on the course within the programme specialisation for the relevant semester and that they have replied to the notification of admission confirming attendance.
Signing up for courses
If a course can be applied for either within your programme or as a free-standing course, you must actively choose one of the alternatives. As a student on a degree programme, you are to prioritise your registration options within the programme at the top of the list. That way, you don’t risk having unnecessary gaps in your degree programme studies.
If you can’t find courses you should to be able to apply for within your programme or having problem getting courses spread over both study periods, please contact your study advisor for help (well before the deadline).
Conditional admission offer
You may receive a conditional admission offer for a course for which you are not eligible when applying. At the latest by the start of the course, you must then be able to show that you meet the entry requirements. If you are uncertain if you are eligible for a course you would like to take, please contact the relevant study advisor (well before the deadline), to find out if you meet the specific requirements for the course.
Maximum 180 credits within the programme
You can sign up for courses within the programme as long as you have been registered for less than the programme’s scope in credits (180 credits for a Bachelor’s degree). So, what is essential is not how many credits you have earned, but how many credits you have been registered for within the programme. If you apply for courses within the programme, and you are already registered for 180 credits (i.e. the full scope of the programme), these courses will be transferred to free-standing courses, if possible.
Maximum 45 credits/semester
Regardless of whether you are applying for courses within a programme or as freestanding courses, you cannot be admitted to more than 45 credits in total. Before selection, you can delete registration options, but you cannot add to or change the order of the courses.
Selection for a course within the programme is based on the number of academic credits earned within the programme. For information on the selection for courses taken as freestanding courses, see the application information on Antagning.se or Universityadmissions.se.
If you wish to obtain approved leave or to withdraw from your studies, you are to apply for permission through your study advisor.

Last day for application
Last application date for an autumn semester is April 15, and October 15 for a spring semester. The application period normally opens one month before the last application date.

For the next coming semester you either apply on Antagning.se, sign up for your courses on “Studentportalen” or get the courses automatically. What applies for your programme is described in the instructions above.
