This information is related to your nomination and the type of agreement your home university has with Linnaeus University. You will need the nomination data during the application process. If you have any doubts regarding the information please contact us before continuing with the application.

Nomination Number: J6790-153
Faculty at Linnaeus University: Faculty of technology

Special conditions: Required to take all credits at Faculty of Technology (according to instructions below).




General Information about Courses

Please note that admission to Linnaeus University is dependent on admission to courses. You must therefore apply for your courses when submitting your application. Please read the information below and the section about courses in the Application Guide carefully before filling out the Course Application Form (which must be uploaded with your supporting documents in the online application).


Specific Information for undergraduate students nominated to Faculty of Technology

    Students coming under agreements with Faculty of Technology may only choose courses from the course lists below and are not permitted to take courses from other Schools/Faculties, unless other information/exception is stated in the agreement. Beginners¹ Swedish is though open for all students according to the rules below.
    Full time studies for one semester is 30 credits (ECTS) and students are required to take all credits at Lnu, regardless if the courses will be recognized at home university within the study programme or not.
    Students must fulfill the specific prerequisites for each course they apply for.  For undergraduate level courses, please be extra careful when choosing courses starting with the number 2 in the course code (for example 2DV505) since they usually have higher prerequisites than other undergraduate courses and many require 60-90 credits of previous studies in the subject in question.
    Students are admitted to courses on a first come, first served basis, based on their application date. The possibilities to switch courses after the application is processed are limited and there is no add/drop period after arrival to Linnaeus University.
    Each semester consists of four consecutive periods (not parallel). Most, but not all, courses at the Faculty of Technology are 7,5 credit part-time (50%) and in those cases it is necessary  to study two courses simultaneously during period 1-2 (first half of the semester), and then another two courses during period 3-4 (second half of semester). There are also a few full time (100%) courses which gives a full study load for the period(s) the course lasts, and a few part-time 25 % courses which needs to be combined with other courses to reach a full study load in total for each period.
