Information about admissions and registration, study leave, examinations, career opportunities, and much more.

Current information regarding the corona virus situation

Currently we teach our courses (except for those that are advertised as online courses) completely or partially on campus, and our aim is to keep teaching on campus as much as possible. We will of course follow the health authorities' recommendations and are prepared to move classes online if the situation demands it.

Keep yourself updated by checking the university's recommendations on coronavirus, your Studium course pages and your schedule often.

New Student?

Welcome to the Department of Linguistics and Philology!

You know you need to activate your student account and register to not risk losing your place on your course?

For those courses where you can't register in Ladok, such as thesis projects and trainee courses, you need to contact the course director to be registered. 

You can find links to the course pages on the page Current courses. You can also access your courses directly in the course portal Studium. On the Student Gateway you will find everything you need to register and get started on your studies.

Should you have questions about your studies, contact us at info@lingfil.uu.se or call the Departmental office during opening hours.
