Study information

Students.Our aim is to provide students at Södertörn University with the best possible service and support, so this area of the website gathers practical information that we hope and believe you will find useful.

Do you want to know how to apply to higher education or when the semester starts? Do you need to contact the Student Health Service, or perhaps you are planning to become involved with a student organisation? Do you want to apply for a degree certificate but are unsure how to go about it? Many questions can arise during your studies; if you can't find the answer you need here, please contact one of our study guidance advisors or Student Support Services. They will be happy to help you.

Choose what you want to study at Södertörn University from our programmes and courses in our online prospectus.

Study Information Desks

Södertörn University has three study information desks that are affiliated with different academic schools. Each one is responsible for ensuring that practical matters related to the courses and programmes at the academic school(s).

Students can obtain help with most things relating to studies from the first day of their course to the last one.

At the study information desk, you can:

  • Apply to register on a course.
  • De-register if you want to leave a course, but still be able to apply for it another time.
  • Apply to re-register if you have already studied a course but have credits left to take.
  • Sign out your corrected exam papers.
  • Hand in take-home papers and assignments to be forwarded to the teacher.
  • Certify a document that shows that you are studying or how many credits you have taken so far.
  • Apply for a credit transfer on your programme.
  • Apply for approved leave from studies.

In some cases, you can also:

  • Get a timetable for your course.
  • Get a syllabus that describes the modules on the course in more details.
  • Get sample exams as a revision aid.

The study information desk can also help you with contacting a careers and study guidance advisor if you have questions about what to study, or with contacting an academic secretary if you have questions about a specific course.

When the study information desk is closed, the website also provides information about many of the issues that the study information desk can help with.
