Selection for courses with limited seats

You should not select compulsory courses; you only have to register for them in Ladok for students during the period for registration. The selection is based on prioritizing between different selection groups that have the course as a compulsory elective or elective course.

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

From 19 October to 2 November, you can make a late application for courses in study period 2 that still have vacant seats. You make a late selection at universityadmissions.se. Please note that the selection has already ended and that courses may be full and therefore not available for late applications.

Register for courses

From 11 October to 8 November you can register for courses in study period 2. You do this in Ladok for student.

How do I make the course selection?

You do the course selection at universityadmissions.se​ (or antagning.se for corresponding webpage in Swedish). Please make sure that you have the correct email address registered at universityadmissions.se, otherwise you might not receive the notification of results. The course selection opens on 14 September, in the afternoon, and closes on 21 September at midnight.

Follow the steps below to make your selection:

Go to universityadmissions.se​ (or antagning.se)

  1. Under the tab ”Log in” you should log in with your university account. Choose “Chalmers University of Technology” in the drop-down list. Click on “To Student Portal” to proceed.
  2. Use your CID (Chalmers ID) and your password.
  3. Please note! You may also log in with the account you got at universityadmissions.se.
  4. Click “My Selection” and then “Find courses and programmes”. Choose ”Autumn 2021” in the box Semester
  5. and filter out “Courses” and “Chalmers University of Technology”. (Don´t tick the box "Only show courses that I can apply to within my programme" under Options for programme students. You will then only see courses in your programme plan.)
  6. Make your selection and prioritize your selected courses. Do not forget to pick secondary choices (reserve courses) if you choose seat limited courses.
  7. You will receive a confirmation e-mail to the e-mail address you have registered at universityadmissions.se. If you do not receive a confirmation e-mail, check your folder for junk mail. If you do not find the confirmation e-mail there, make your course selection again.
  8. You can rearrange and change your selected courses until the deadline 21 September.
  9. You receive your notification of selection results on 30 September.

How many courses should I pick?

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 nine 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 2. 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 2. 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 2. 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 2. You prioritize your first choices at positions 1 and 2. Both courses are seat unlimited. You do not have to select reserve courses.

What 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 which is open from October 19 to November 2. 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 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 students paying tuition fee​

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.
