Applications within a programme

If you are a programme director or equivalent, here you can learn more about the procedures that apply for applications to first and second cycle programmes via NyA.

For programmes that do not have semester registration, a new application must be submitted before each semester. It is possible to make applications within programme structures in Ladok; however, if the students’ eligibility for the different courses within the programme needs to be reviewed it can only be done in NyA. You decide which set-up is best for your programme in consultation with the Student Records Office and the Admissions Office. 

The student registers using their student account at  by the application deadline (15 October for the spring semester, 15 April for the autumn semester). 

Programme documentation

The Admissions Office sends information, known as programme documentation from Ladok to NyA, about students who are eligible to apply for courses within programmes at This takes place approximately one week prior to applications opening (15 March for the autumn semester, 15 September for the spring semester). 
Prior to the programme documentation being collected it is important you check that students in the programme are registered for the right specialisation and programme instance. Some programmes have elective courses in just one particular semester via NyA. We produce documentation for these students as well upon request from the department.

Group registration

For certain semesters, a fixed range of courses may be offered within programmes. To facilitate registration for the students, a group registration can be made in such cases. The Admissions Office will perform group registrations on request from a programme director, or equivalent at the relevant department. Submit the following information to the Admissions Office:

  • programme/specialisation;
  • the students’ registrations for the current semester;
  • which courses the students will be attending next semester.

Group registrations must take place prior to applications opening (15 March for the autumn semester, 15 September for the spring semester). The student must respond to their admission decision, even for group registrations. 

Note: it is the responsibility of the departments to inform students that a group registration is being processed and that it is the students’ responsibility to check, in good time, that there is an application at If this is not the case, the student must apply themselves. 

Application instructions

The department that coordinates the programme shall also:

  • compile application instructions for programme students, and ensure they have access;
  • notify the admissions office which courses applicants within the programmes have the opportunity of selecting, should restrictions apply.

Instructions for students on how to apply within the Bachelor’s programme is published at (in Swedish)
