Registration – step by step

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

To log in to LADOK and Canvas, students with a Swedish personal identification number should first obtain an eduID (Details of how to register for an eduID can be found below.). This is a digital identification system.

Getting an eduID can take one or two weeks, so it is essential that you register with eduID as soon as possible after you accept your admission offer.

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

Students with a Swedish personal identification number should follow this step-by-step process:

STEP 1
Create an eduID account as soon as possible. Registration can take some time.

Information about the registration and orientation day/week:

For students on the Pastoral-Pedagogical program and the Religious Educator Program:

The term starts with registration on Monday, August 16 at 12.30pm at Sankt Ignatios College, Nyköpingsvägen 22 in Södertälje (https://goo.gl/maps/B35qsxBJ3tgdDgjo8). Following that, you are required to attend orientation days (August 16 – 21 and August 23-24) during which you will receive all the necessary information about your program/course and the coming academic year as well as having an opportunity to meet your teachers, the school administration team and your fellow students. The orientation days on August 23-24 will be organised online according to the following program. Please note that attendance at both the registration day and orientation days is obligatory. If you are prevented from attending either or both of these by circumstances outside of your control make sure that you send an email to johan.andersson@sanktignatios.org in advance, and that you explain the situation. Students who do not come to the registration and orientation days, and do not inform Johan Andersson (in advance) about their inability to participate, will be de-registered from the program or course.

For all first-year students (B.Th. and M.Th.) of the on-campus programs:

The orientation days will take place online only. The term starts with orientation day on Monday, August 23 at 9.40am. During orientation days (August 23-24) you will receive all the necessary information about your program/course and the coming academic year as well as having an opportunity to meet your teachers virtually, the school administration team and your fellow students.

For students studying programs (B.Th. and M.Th.) and courses on-line:

All students are required to participate in online activities on Canvas during the first week of classes. If you are prevented from being active during the first week of classes by circumstances outside of your control, make sure that you get in touch with the instructor(s) and the program director in advance, and that you explain the situation. Students who do not participate in online activities during the first week of classes who do not inform (in advance) the instructor and program director about their inability to participate, will automatically be removed from the program.
Moreover, the orientation days will take place online on Monday, August 23 and Tuesday, August 24. Attendance on the orientation days is optional for students studying online. The program of the online orientation day can be found here.

For the successful completion of your studies, it is essential to have access to the course literature. It is student’s responsibility to obtain course literature well in advance of the start of each course. Many students buy their own course literature.

The library at University College Stockholm has a selected 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. 

Here are some helpful links:

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

Due to the pandemic situation, courses that are only offered as campus courses during the autumn term can also be followed online (so-called hybrid teaching). Students who have applied to campus courses can switch to an online course if such a course is offered in parallel.

Students on distance courses must complete at least 80 % of the assignments (which are set on Canvas/Moodle) and attend on-site meetings.

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 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 any necessary documentation supporting your disability with your digital application. All documentation is kept confidential. Here is a link to the website: NAIS 

Please also contact the coordinator for study support at University College Stockholm: Henrik Hannfors, henrik.hannfors@ehs.se, 08-564 357 25

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
