Get ready to start your studies

There are a few administrative steps you need to take to start your studies at MDH. Please follow them in the right order and you'll be all set.

1. Create student account

You will need a student account in order to be able to log into computers, access course material, get into your email and use other IT resources. If you don't have a Swedish personal ID number please email the Student Centre for assistance. Enclose a copy of your passport page which has your details and photo and please write "Student account" as email subject. You will get a reply with instructions within 24 hours (work days). As a new programme or exchange student you need to create your account by 6 September at the latest.

2. Register

When you have created your student account with the help of the Student Centre you can register in the student database. You must register for the course or programme, otherwise you will lose your place. The registration for the autumn semester 2020 opens 10 August and closes 6 September. Registration for courses beginning later in the semester opens one week before the course starts and closes on Sunday the same week as the course starts. If you are admitted to a programme, you must register for the course(s) within the programme, then you will be automatically registered on the programme and the place is yours.

3. Order your university card

The university card is a personal card that all students get. You use it to gain access to the university premises, for printing, borrowing books from the library, and other things. It also serves as a ticket for the free buses between the Eskilstuna campus and the Västerås campus. You order your university card once you have registered for your programme or course. Note! It can take up to six hours after you have made a registration before you can order the card.

4. Start of programmes and courses

For international students, the autumn semester 2020 begins on 31 August. The link below allows you to search for your programme or course for location and time information.
