Select courses for the spring semester 2021

If you are going to take compulsory elective or elective courses for study periods 3 and 4 you select courses on universityadmissions.se.

What you should keep in mind when choosing courses

In the programme curriculum, you see which courses that are included in your program and which courses are required for your degree. You are responsible for ensuring that you meet the prerequisites and have the right prior knowledge. The requirements can be found in Search course. You have to plan your courses according to the block schedule .

Last day to select courses

November 23, at 23.59 – the course selection closes. Then a selection is made among all applicants. On the first of December, you will receive a notification of selection results with reply requirement. You must reply to your notification of selection results no later than December 8 in order to keep the seats you've been offered or to remain on the reserve/waiting list.  

Selection for courses with limited seats 

You should not select compulsory courses, you only have to register for them in LADOK during the period for registration. The selection is based on prioritizing between different selection groups that have the course as compulsory elective or as elective. In short, the following rules are followed
  • Master programme students have priority to courses within their own study programme plan over master programme students from other programmes.
  • Master programme students have priority over exchange students.
  • The lowest priority is given to students that make a late application. 

Reserve/waiting list

A student who is not offered a seat ends up in a reserve list. The ranking in the reserve list is based on which selection group you belong to. If a seat becomes available, the first student is offered the seat. If the student declines, the offer goes to the next student on the list, and so on.

Course selection opens for late application 

Between January 8 and January 19, you can make a late application for courses in study period 3 and study period 4 that are still vacant. You make a late selection on universityadmissions.se. Please note that the first selection has already ended, and that courses may be full. Full courses may not be available for late application. You will be able to adjust your courses for study period 4 between March 9 and March 23. Adjustments are done at universityadmissions.se.

How many courses should I pick?

You can choose a maximum of nine courses. You only need to pick reserve courses for courses that have limited seats. You are recommended to choose at least one reserve course for each course with limited seats. You do not have to choose a reserve course for courses with unlimited seats. If you use all nine choices from the beginning, you will not be able to add additional choices in the late application.

How should I prioritize my choices at universityadmissions.se?

If you are going to study one compulsory elective or elective course, simply prioritize your courses in the order in which you are interested. If you are planning to study two or more compulsory elective or elective courses, the courses need to be prioritized according to a certain order. The courses you prefer to study should be given the highest priority. Thereafter, you prioritize your reserve courses for courses with limited seats.
 
Example 1: According to your curriculum, you must choose one course in study period 3 and one in study period 4. The course in study period 3 has limited seats. Therefore, you prioritize your first choices for study periods 3 and 4 as priority 1 and 2. You then prioritize your reserve course for study period 3 as your priority 3. 

Example 2: According to your curriculum, you must choose one course in study period 3 and one in study period 4. Both courses have limited seats. Therefore, you prioritize your first choices for study periods 3 and 4 as priority 1 and 2. You then prioritize your reserve courses for study period 3 and study period 4 as your priority 3 and 4. You prioritize your possible third-hand courses last. 

Example 3: According to your curriculum, you must choose two courses in study period 3 and one in study period 4. You must therefore prioritize your first-hand courses in priority place 1 (LP3 course), 2 (LP3 course) and 3 (LP4 course). You do not pick reserve courses for courses with unlimited seats. Your reserve courses are prioritized thereafter. You prioritize your possible third-hand courses last.

Example 4 (MPARC and MPDSD): According to your curriculum, you must choose three courses in total for study period 3 and study period 4. One 22,5 credit course, one 4,5 credit course and one 3 credit course. You must therefore prioritize your 22,5 credit courses first, then the 4,5 credit courses and last the 3 credit courses. 

Students enrolled in Architecture and urban design (MPARC) or Architecture and planning beyond sustainability (MPDSD)

Make sure to prioritize your courses correctly, first all 22,5 credit courses you want to apply to followed by all 4,5 credit courses and last the 3 credit courses. Additional course information and flyers will be found on the programme Canvas.

Information for fee-paying students

The tuition fee covers 30 credits per semester. You must check, and are responsible for not signing up for more credits than is permitted per semester, for any deviations read the regulations. It is allowed to change a course within three weeks from the start of the course without paying a new tuition fee. Please note, all teachers do not accept new students after study week one, so if you want to change a course talk to the teacher first. If you cancel a course later than three weeks after the start of the course, you must pay the tuition fee for the new course.
Chalmers will check the number of registered course credits and issue an invoice for the number of credits that exceed the allowed maximum that is covered by the fee. Therefore, check your registrations regularly so that you are not registered on courses you do not intend to read. If you cancel a course later than three weeks after the course start, it still counts as registered credits.
