Department of Scandinavian Languages

Welcome to the Department of Scandinavian Languages!


To enroll in our courses, you register in Ladok. If you are starting a programme, you should register to the programme's first course, which you have been admitted to. Registration closes at different times depending on the course. The registration deadline for a particular course is advertised in Ladok. Please note that if you miss the registration deadline, your spot may be offered to waitlisted students.

Conditionally admitted

If you are conditionally admitted to a course, you will need to provide proof that you meet the eligibility requirements prior to course start. If you are eligible you can be registered.

If you are conditionally admitted, you must contact the Department of Scandinavian Languages as soon as possible, and no later than the last registration date to verify your eligibility and be registered:


If you are placed on reserve (waiting list), the department will contact you by email, if we can offer you a spot on the course. Don't forget to check your “junk mail” folder or “spam” folder. You only have a few days to reply. Admissions for waitlisted applicants will begin a few days after the course starts.
