I have emailed my teacher several times without receiving a response, what do I do?

Government officials (including university teachers) should answer questions from individuals as soon as possible, according to the Swedish Administration Procedure Act. Let your teacher know you have tried to get in touch, if you still have not received a response, contact the student council at  studentcouncil@foreningenekonomerna.se so that we can help you get in contact with the teacher.

I failed or did not finish a course, what do I do?

You can re-register for courses you have been previously registered in. As a re-registered student, you can register for exams in Fastreg (at latest 3 working days prior to the exam date) and you may attend lectures if there are seats available. Contact the course coordinator for the course you wish to register and to check the availability to join a seminar group. Contact details and the course schedule will be found on the course website.

The course has started already but there are no assessment criteria available on the course site, what do I do?

According to Stockholm University’s rules for education and examination, the syllabus should be published no later than one month prior to the last day of admission, unless valid reasons exist. Contact the course coordinator and ask the syllabus and study guide to be published on Fastreg if you can not find it. The syllabus should state where information about course literature and other course material that the student needs to have access to at the start of the course can be found.

When will my exam results be available?

According to Stockholm University’s local guidelines, exam results should be published on Ladok (minastudier) within 15 days after the examination date. Contact the course coordinator if you still have not received your result.

How do I appeal my grade?

Grades are not subject to appeal. However, you may request a review of a grading decision, which means that you submit a review request that states reasons for why your request should be considered based on the course’s grading criteria and learning outcomes. Contact the course assistant for more information on how to request a grade review.

I failed the regular exam and the re-exam, what do I do?

If you have failed the regular examination and re-examination, you may re-register for the course.
