Department of Earth Sciences

Information for students, spring semester 2024

If you have been admitted to Uppsala University, you are probably eager to get started with your studies. But before you get started you need to do one important thing: you must register for the course or programme you are going to attend. Otherwise, you may lose your place in the course or programme. As a new student, in order to register the first step is to get a student account. Read more about how to get a student account.

For most of the courses at the Department of Earth Sciences you must register yourself in the IT system “Ladok for students”. However, there are some exceptions to this.

The registration period for your specific courses is specified in Ladok. Note! If you do not register in time, you will lose your place and your place will be offered to someone on the waiting list. For most of the courses given by our department, the registration period opens around 2-4 weeks before the course start.


If it turns out that you can be offered a spot on the course, you will be contacted by the Department by e-mail. Unfortunately, we are not able to answer any questions about the possibilities of this. Check your e-mail regularly, also the spam!


A preliminary schedule will be published no later than five weeks before the course start on the course page in Studium.

Decline your place

If you do not want your place you must decline on Doing this will open up for reserve students to gain access to the programme or course.
