It is finally time to start studying your degree programme! It is important to know that just attending your classes is not enough, you must register for your studies. In Sweden, it is a legal requirement that universities have a registry of their students. 

Programme registration opens on the first day of the autumn semester and stays open for three weeks. You need to register for your programme and the courses for your first semester by then, otherwise, you will lose your place.
