Programme students are automatically admitted to the first-semester courses within the programme. From the first semester on students must apply to the courses they wish to study the upcoming semester within the programme. The application is done via antagning.se (the Swedish version of universityadmissions.se). The courses given in the spring semester 2021 are open for applications from 15 September to 15 October 2020.
To apply for admission to courses within the programme at antagning.se select Log in at the top of the page. In the Log-in window, under ‟Are you already a student?”, select Lund University in the drop-down menu, then click on Go to student portal. You will need your student account and your password.
If you have lost your user identity or your password, you can get a new one on https://passport.lu.se/. Log in with your personal identity number and your password for antagning.se. You can also get a temporary code from the Student Reception at the University, which you can use to create a new password. In addition, you can contact the LU Service Desk by phone on 046-222 90 00 on weekdays between 08:00 and 17:00 or online at luservicedesk.service- now.com/support/.
It is important that you submit your application in good time! There may be many applicants trying to access the admission system close to deadline. All courses will be closed for applications after the deadline and may or may not be reopened for late applications before the start of the semester. If you intend to write your Bachelor's thesis next semester contact the director of studies before the application deadline.
When you apply, use the options marked as ‟Course within programme” on antagning.se to get the courses included in your programme. As a programme student you should prioritise your options within the programme at the top of the list. In this way you do not risk having unnecessary gaps in your programme studies. If your courses DO NOT appear within the Master of Science programme despite you having logged in as a programme student, you must immediately contact your study counsellor so that the problem can be addressed. This only applies to courses within the Master of Science programme and not to courses from other faculties or universities.
You can apply for admission to courses within the programme as long as you have been registered for less than the programme’s scope in credits (180 credits for a Bachelor’s degree).
Please note that what is essential is not how many credits you have earned, but how many credits you have been registered for within the programme. If you apply to courses within the programme and it turns out that you are already registered for the number of credits corresponding to your programme, your application will be transferred to a free-standing course, if possible.
Please note that certain courses are only announced for programme students (e.g. degree project courses) and you must be logged in as a student for these courses to appear as options on antagning.se.
Regardless of whether you are applying to courses within a programme or as free-standing courses, you cannot be admitted to more than 45 credits in total. Before selection, you can delete registration options, but you cannot add courses or change the order of the courses.
Notification of admission and confirmation requirement
You will receive a notification of selection results, to which you must reply to accept or decline the offered study places. You can find the date of the notification of selection results and the deadline for replying on antagning.se.
If you have not received your notification of admission by 10 December at the latest for the spring semester, call 0771-550 720, so that you are able to respond in time.
It is extremely important to reply to this notification and accept or decline the offered study place by 16 December. Applicants who do not reply by this date will lose any places (accepted or on the waiting list) that they have been offered. The second notification of selection results will be communicated on 21 December.
Study place guarantee
Students admitted to the Master’s Programme in Mathematics have a guaranteed place on the compulsory and alternatively compulsory courses within the programme, provided that the entry requirements are fulfiled, that the application was submitted in time, within the programme, and that they confirm attendance by replying to the notification of admission.
You may receive a conditional admission offer for a course for which you are not eligible. At the latest by the start of the course, you must be able to show that you meet the entry requirements. As for all admissions, lower prioritised alternative options will automatically be cancelled. If you wish to register for a course for which you are not eligible at the time of registration, you should contact your study counsellor and find out about the possibilities of exemption from entry requirements, in case you do not meet them.
