Ladok on the Web (LPW)

Södertörn University uses a computerised student register called Ladok. Ladok on the Web (LPW) allows you to check your personal data, course registrations and results. You can also print out a verifiable certificate of enrolment or a national certificate of enrolment (which shows your results from other higher education institutions) for completed courses and examinations.

Ladok is used by most higher education institutions in Sweden; each institution has its own database. Initially, the information in the database is what is submitted in an application to study. During the student's studies, information regarding their course or programme registrations, study results, degrees, etc., is added continually.
 

Change of address

Twice each year, changes to surnames and addresses are retrieved from the Swedish register of people and addresses (SPAR). Students may change temporary addresses in LPW themselves.
 

Change of name and Swedish ID number

In order to change a name and/or Swedish ID number in Ladok, it is necessary to have a civic registration certificate (personbevis) from the Swedish Tax Agency (Skatteverket).

Regulations for Ladok

The construction and content of the student register is regulated in a study documentation ordinance (Studiedokumentationsförordningen), "Förordning om redovisning av studier med mera vid universitet och högskolor" (SFS 1993:1153). Its purpose is to secure the result of the students' studies; the information also forms the basis of follow-ups and evaluations, public statistics (SCB) and resource allocation.

All information in Ladok is covered by the principle of public access to official documents. Centrala studiestödsnämnden "Swedish student aid" (CSN) has direct access to the information contained in the register which is necessary for processing applications for financial aid for studies.
