Information for the new semester

web registration, course platform & course information
This information is for students admitted to a course or a programme at Department of Sociology. We are glad that you have chosen to be a student at our Department. On this page we have summarized the most important information for you. You will also find links to other pages that can be useful for you.

If you are on the waiting list instead?

The Student Office will contact you if you can be offered a place at the course/programme.

Web registration

It is important you fill out the web registration for the course you are admitted to if you plan to study the course. You must do this in the beginning of the semester. Go to the Student Portal and register. Here is a document (pdf) that will guide you through the web registration.

You will need your Student-account (StiL) to carry out the web registration. As a new student at Lund University you will get your Student-account (StiL) sent to you. This account is then used during your whole study period at Lund University.

If you have any problems with the web registration, please contact the Student Office. See their contact information in the fact box here on this webpage.

Course platforms & Course information

All of our courses are connected to a course platform where the teachers upload information. We have two course platforms, Luvit and live@lund. You will work in one of them, but which one depends on which course you are admitted to. See which course platform applies for you on the course webpage.

Each course and each programme has their own course page here on the website. On those pages you can find information regarding literature, syllabus and schedule. Find your course or programme under Education here at our website.

If you change your mind

If you do not want to complete the course then you have to talk to the Student Office as soon as possible. You need to do this before 3 weeks have passed from the first day of the course. By doing this you will be able to apply for the course again in the future.

If you on the other hand decide to leave the course after 3 weeks have passed you will no longer be able to apply for that same course in the future and will only be allowed to study the course if the course is not already full.
