Select courses for the autumn semester 2022, study period 1

Students that have compulsory elective/elective courses in their programme curriculum for study period 1 need to make a course selection. If this applies to you, you will receive course selection information from your programme around the time the course selection opens. Students in programmes that only have compulsory courses in the curriculum in study period 1 should not make a course selection.

If you have been newly admitted to a master’s programme you should normally not make a course selection for study period 1, first semester.

You should not select compulsory courses in your study programme; you only have to register for them in Ladok for students during the period for registration.

Information on this page does not apply to incoming exchange students. Incoming exchange students should contact their CIM coordinator for questions about course selection.

Access to the course selection

You select your courses at universityadmissions.se. Students studying at regular pace have automatic access to making a course selection in the study periods they need to.

Contact the student guidance counselor or the director of studies for your programme to get access to making a course selection if:

To keep in mind when selecting courses

  • In the programme curriculum, you see which courses are included in your program and which courses are required for your degree. You are responsible for selecting courses that contribute to meeting the degree requisites for your programme.
  • In the course syllabus you can see the prerequisites for the course. You are responsible for ensuring that you meet the prerequisites and have the right prior knowledge.
  • In the course syllabus you can also see if the course has a maximum number of participants. Always select reserve course/-s if you select a course/courses with a maximum number of participants.
  • You should plan your courses according to the the block schedule.

After the course selection

Last day to select courses at 23.59 – the course selection closes. Then a selection is made among all applicants. You will receive a notification of selection results with the course(s) you have been offered, see dates above.


Selection for courses with limited seats 

The selection is based on prioritizing between different selection groups. In short, the following rules apply:


  • Master’s programme students have priority to courses within their own study programme over master’s programme students from other programmes.
  • Master’s 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 is placed on 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.

Register on courses

You must register in Ladok on courses in study period 1 yourself, during the registration period.

How do I make the course selection?

How many courses should I select?

 You can select a maximum of eight courses. You only need to select reserve courses for courses that are seat limited. You are recommended to select at least one reserve course for each course that is seat limited. You do not have to select a reserve course for courses that are seat unlimited.

Important note! If you select eight courses from the beginning, and therefore use all eight positions, you will not be able to add additional courses in the late application.

How should I prioritize my selected courses?​

If you are going to study one compulsory elective or elective course, simply prioritize your courses in the order of interest. If you are planning to study two or more compulsory elective or elective courses, the courses need to be prioritized in a certain order. The courses you prefer to study should be given the highest priority. Thereafter, you prioritize your reserve courses for courses that are seat limited.

 

Example 1: Selection of one course.
According to your curriculum, you should select one course in study period 1. You prioritize your first choice at position 1. This is a seat limited course. You then prioritize reserve courses at positions 2 and 3. If your first choice instead is a seat unlimited course, you do not have to select reserve courses.

 

Example 2: Selection of two seat limited courses
According to your curriculum, you should select two courses in study period 1. You prioritize your first choices at positions 1 and 2. Both courses are seat limited. You then prioritize reserve courses at positions 3 and 4. If these are also seat limited courses you should prioritize two additional seat unlimited reserve courses at positions 5 and 6.

 

Example 3: Selection of two courses where one is seat limited
According to your curriculum, you should select two courses in study period 1. You prioritize your first choices at positions 1 and 2. One of the courses is seat limited. You then prioritize a reserve course at position 3. If this is also a seat limited course you should prioritize an additional seat unlimited reserve course at position 4.

 

Example 4: Selection of two seat unlimited courses
According to your curriculum, you should select two courses in study period 1. You prioritize your first choices at positions 1 and 2. Both courses are seat unlimited. You do not have to select reserve courses.

 

Example 5: For students enrolled in MPARC or MPDSD
You can follow “Track 1”: one 22,5 credits course and the two master’s thesis preparation courses, 4,5 credits and 3 credits, or follow “Track 2”: one 15 credits course and two 7,5 credits courses. “Track 2” is selected as a course package. Prioritize the 22,5 credits courses you are interested in and (if you want) the 15 credits course from track 2 first, you add the 7,5 credits courses from track 2 after that (if you want to apply for them), and don’t forget to add both master’s thesis preparation courses at the bottom of your list.

What do I do if I miss the deadline for the course selection, or want to adjust it after it has closed?

If you miss the deadline for the course selection, you may still apply for courses during the late application period. Courses that are closed for applicants, for instance seat limited courses that were filled after the course selection period, will not be available during this period. Late applications are given the lowest priority and you will be placed at the back of reserve lists if a course is full. If you adjust your course selection during this period, your new selection will also have the lowest priority. Late applications are also made at universityadmissions.se.

Information for fee-paying students

The tuition fee covers 30 credits per semester, and you are responsible for not signing up for more credits per semester. For any deviations from this, please read the regulations below. You can switch a course to another course within three weeks from the start of the course without paying a new tuition fee. After that time, you must pay the tuition fee for 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 take. If you cancel a course later than three weeks after the course start, it still counts as registered credits.
