Information to students admitted to a Master's Programme
On behalf of Stockholm University (SU) and the Department of Computer and Systems Sciences in Kista (DSV), we are pleased to welcome you to one of our Master of Science Programmes.
The programmes are composed of 120 credits which correspond to two years of full-time studies. We also have one year Master of Science Programmes that are composed of 60 credits. Language of instruction is English.
You will receive notification regarding your admission from universityadmissions.se
In order to keep your place in the programme you must reply to your offer and confirm acceptance no later than April 14th 2016. Responses are received on the website universityadmissions.se. If you fail to reply to your offer before the deadline your admission will be withdrawn.
If you have a condition attached to your admission, you will also be asked to show proof that the condition has been fulfilled on enrolment day. Please bring the original of your bachelor degree certificate as well as a complete transcript of your courses. If the documents are in a language we are not likely to understand, you must also bring a translation of each document. Please note that the translation must be made by a certified translator. Languages that are accepted without a translation include: Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, English, French, German, Italian and Spanish.
In case you are admitted to one of our online programmes you can send your documents by e-mail to email@example.com.
If you recently have completed all your courses but not yet obtained your bachelor degree, you may also bring an official document from your university stating that you fulfil the requirements of the bachelor degree and that you will be awarded it later.
Enrolment will take place in August. If you fail to enrol in time you will lose your place in the programme. Enrolment will be possible online.
Stockholm University will be inviting all new master students to an orientation day at the main campus in August.
The Department of Computer and Systems Sciences (DSV) will also be inviting all campus students to an information session at the end of August. Dates will be published later.
The courses start from Monday August 29th 2016.
Please inform yourself about your programme outline.
The schedules are available on our website: http://dsv.su.se/en/education/study-information/courses
More information is available in the information letter (will be updated shortly).
For you to be able to study at Stockholm University you need a University Account. You can activate your account a few weeks before your studies start.
If you have a Swedish civic registration number and are a confirmed user at universityadmissions.se, you can use this link and follow the instructions to activate your account.
If you don't have a Swedish civic registration number or if you don't have a permanent address in Sweden you have to visit the helpdesk at the main campus (Campus Frescati) when you arrive in Stockholm and collect your account information.
If you are an international online student you will receive information regarding how to activate your account later.
If you have any problems with your University Account, please use serviceportalen.su.se
In case you have any questions regarding your upcoming studies, please contact a student counsellor.
We assume that you have the legal right to study in Sweden, e.g. Swedish nationality or a valid residence permit. If that is not the case or if you are not certain, please consult the information on the website of the Swedish Migration Board. If you need a residence premit, the procedure should be started immediately to make sure of getting your permit in time for the enrolment and beginning of your education.
You do not have to ask us for any documents because the Swedish Migration Board has been informed by universityadmissions.se of your admission, so when applying for a residence premit you just have to mention that you have been admitted to the programme.
Please observe that a residence permit cannot be granted before paying the first instalment of the tuition fees. Please pay as soon as possible as the application procedure may take longer than expected and you may lose your seat in the programme if you fail to enrol in time.
Am I required to pay?
An invoice for the first instalment of the tuition fees will be sent after the second notification of selection results have been published, late April or the beginning of May. Deadline for paying the first instalment is June 1st.
Paying your tuition fees
It is very important that you arrange for accommodation in Stockholm as soon as possible. Most students find their accommodation through the Foundation of Student Accommodation in Stockholm (SSSB) but we strongly recommend that you also contact other providers of accommodation. More information and useful links are provided on the Stockholm university website for housing.
Unfortunately Stockholm University and the Department of Computer and Systems Sciences are not able to provide for accommodation for master students. We are not able to give any assistance with finding accommodation besides from the link provided above.
If you arrive in Stockholm without long-term accommodation, an alternative may be to spend your first time in a youth hostel. Information is available at www.svif.se.
Stockholm University strongly recommends all students to have a complete insurance coverage to avoid extreme costs that might occur during off-campus activities. Carefully consider which level of insurance you need and pay particular attention to any restrictions and exclusions.
All students studying in Sweden are covered by a personal injury insurance (a general student insurance) that has been obtained on behalf of universities and colleges within the Swedish state insurance system by Kammarkollegiet. The insurance applies while you are on campus during school hours and during travel to and from the location where school hours are spent.
