What to select?
Depending on which Master's programme you are admitted to, you should select either one or two elective courses in study period 2. If you have compulsory courses in study period 2 these will automatically be added to your study plan in LADOK. As a first step check your programme syllabus to find the courses available to your programme. Follow the steps below:
- Visit Search Programme
- Make sure academic year is set to 2020/2021.
- Either enter the 5 letter code or the English name of your Master's programme listed above in the corresponding field and press Search.
- Click on the correct search result to enter the study programme. By default the first year is shown.
- Scroll down to autumn term and study period 2 to find a list of elective courses available to your Master's programme. Here you can also click on a course name to see the course syllabus. Note that course specific prerequisites are also stated here.
- Determine which and how many elective courses you should select, typically one or two depending on the number of compulsory course(s) in the study period.
How do I make the course selection?
Go to your startpage on the Student Portal and select the service Select courses between 15 September and 6 October. Be sure to make your selection on time!
If I miss the deadline or want to change courses?
If you miss the deadline there is still a chance that you can be enrolled in your desired course(s). Please contact your Director of studies.
Rules for selection to courses with limited places
For some courses, as stated in the course syllabus, the number of participants is limited. If the course gets more applicants than number of places available, a selection between applicants is made. This selection is based on prioritizing between different selection groups. 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.
A selection between applicants within a student group might also need to be made. In that case the priority list applies:
- Most credits (courses) taken within the Master's programme.
- Highest grade average within the Master's programme (grade average is calculated from completed courses only).
- If 1 and 2 cannot separate between applicants, a casting of lots is used. For exchange students lottery is always used.
Students who are not admitted to their preferred course(s) are put on a waiting list in prioritized order. If a place becomes available, the first student on the list is offered the place. In case that student declines, the place is offered to the second student on the list, and so on.
Course selection in study period 2
When the course selection for study period 2 closes on October 6, there will be a selection of place-limited courses. This may mean that your course registration is removed and that you as a student must select a new course before study period 2. If your course registration is deleted, you will be notified by e-mail.
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 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.
