Application and registration

Before each term, an application will automatically be submitted for the courses you should study the next term. This is handled by the Admission Office at Umeå University, who make a so-called group application. The group application is not always correct and it is therefore important that you check the application for each term. Sign in via Umeå University with your Central Authentication Service ID (CAS) at and check that the courses you are going to study can be found in your application. The courses that should be in your application are only those starting the coming term. If the wrong course or courses appears in your application or if you do not have an application for the next term you must immediately contact your study administrator. 


Remember to reply to your Notification of selection

Do not forget to reply to the Notification of selection you receive in the middle of July and the middle of December. The computer system does not automatically register an acceptance and if you do not give a 'yes' answer, you will not be admitted to the course. This also applies to those included in a group application.
