Questions about registration and admission


Register on your course!

In order to register on your course, you first need to create a user account. Read more about how to activate your user account in our guide, "Five steps to get started".

If you do not register on time, you will lose your place on the course. Please contact your course administrator before the end of the registration period if you are experiencing problems with course registration.

If you are conditionally admitted you are not able to register on the course yourself.

Course organisation and communication

During the course you will write your master thesis. It is important that you already now start to sketch your field, define your questions, consider what method could be used and how the structure of the thesis could look like! We'll start on Thursday 20th of January with a general introduction, mid semester seminary will be held on 17th of March and the master thesis seminary will be held on Friday 3th of June.

In the beginning of the course you will get a supervisor who follows you work. It is important that you keep contact with him/her during the whole semester so you have a dialogue with each other! The contact between student and supervisor will be both through Canvas and through e-mail.

The course is given by the Faculty of Business and Education.

Written exams

Registration for exams, including re-takes, is mandatory. You can register for exams via Ladok. You need to register at least ten days before the exam date. If you didn't register in time, you can not take your exam. No exceptions are made from this rule, we do not accept registrations when the deadline is passed.

If you are a distance study student and want to take your exam off-campus, you need to apply to do so at least three weeks prior to the exam date.
