Apply for courses

Students enrolled in a 2-year international master's programme at LTH might be required to apply for courses. 

  • Most Master's degree students at LTH must apply for courses before each study period. 
  • Students in Achitecture and SUDes only apply for courses before each semester.
  • Students in Energy-efficient and Environmental Building Design, Industrial Design, FIPDes and IMFSE, who have only pre-selected courses, do not need to apply for courses.

Students must apply for all courses in the programme (including compulsory courses) except the KKK000 and the Degree Project. A reminder is sent out to you by email when it is time to apply.

How to apply

You apply for courses at LTH course website:

  1. Click on "Log in for course application"
  2. Sign in with your student (StiL) account

Some courses have entry requirements and/or a limitation in the number of study places. When you apply for a course you can find this information in the course syllabus (a link can be found inside the application system). Admission is given if you fulfil the entry requirements and if there is enough space in the course. If you are admitted to the course you will receive an email.

If you apply for a course after the deadline you will be put on the reserve list for that course

You can do a late application until the end of week two in the study period, if the course is not already full. You will then be put on a reserve list. After week two you can not do an application yourself. In that case you need to contact the course administrator/coordinator. You can find contact information in the course syllabus.

If you want to drop a course you have selected before the start of the course

You are not obliged to do anything, but it is polite to notify the course coordinator.

If you want to drop a course you have started

If you have registered for the course you need to cancel the registration in Ladok within three weeks from the starting date of the course. As a fee-paying student you will be charged for the course if you don’t cancel your registration within these three weeks.

If you haven’t registered for the course it is polite to notify the course coordinator that you will drop the course
