Welcome as a new student  

Congratulations on making a good choice. An exciting time is about to start and the opportunities are plenty. Here are some things to keep in mind in order to get the best possible start as a student at MDH. You can follow the steps below if you already have a Swedish personal ID number. If not, please visit our website for international students.

1. Accept your study programme or course

Once you have received your admission decision, you must accept your admission on antagning.se before you can register. If you change your mind about your study choice, you must cancel your application on antagning.se. Thereby, you will allow another applicant to take your place. If you are admitted without having to submit a response, you can skip this point and move on to point 2.

2. Create a student account

If you have been admitted and have accepted a course or programme at antagning.se (universityadmissions.se) you will need a student account to be able to log in to computers, email and other IT services. If you start your studies with us during the autumn semester 2021, you can order your student account from 9 August. During the first few days, it may take up to 6 hours for your account to be created.

3. Enrolment

If you are admitted to a course or programme, you must register, otherwise you will lose your place. Registration for the autumn semester 2021 opens on 9 August. Registration closes on 29 August for programmes and courses that start in week 34 and on 5 September for programmes and courses that start in week 35. For courses that start later in the semester, registration opens one week before the start of the course and closes on Sunday of the same week as the start of the course. If you are admitted to a programme, you must register for the course(s) on the programme, then you will automatically be registered on the programme and the place is yours. If you have been admitted after the end of the registration period, you can email studenttorget@mdh.se to get help with registration. Remember to provide your correct contact details when you register.

4. Order an MDH card

The MDH card is a personal card that you use to enter the campus, the University premises and to be able to print. It is also a travel pass for the free buses that run between the Eskilstuna and Västerås campuses. If you need an MDH card, you can order it after you have registered.

5. Digital Introduction

Welcome to our digital introduction which contains both important information regarding your study time at MDH but also things that will make your new life as a student easier.

6. Start of programmes and courses

The autumn semester 2021 starts on 23 August and 30 August respectively, depending on the programme or course you are going to study. Using the link below, you can search for your course or programme for information about location and times. If you are a programme student, you will have both the start of the programme and the course. Information about which courses are included in your programme can be found in your programme timetable or in Ladok.

Important!

Make sure that your contact details, such as your phone number and email, is always up to date and correct throughout your studies.

7. Student website

On the student website you will find more information about your studies on the programme and course or if you are going to study remotely. Here you can also find information about course syllabuses with reading lists, timetables and the platforms and systems that you as a student will use during your studies.

Mälardalen Student Union

Mälardalen Student Union (MDS) is the official Student Union at MDH. Together with MDS, we work to ensure that all students get the best possible study time through student influence. During your rookie period, the student associations arrange student social activities and other events.
