The Department of Economic uses web registration for courses via ladok in the student portal.

Web registration 
Your student account at Lund University is used for logging on to the student portal and to access the Ladok function – where you submit your course registration during the registration period.

Student account at LU

Information on how to submit a course registration

Web registration – conditionally admitted 
If you have a conditionally admission, i.e. if you are admitted to a course but not yet fulfil the stated prerequisites, you cannot submit a web registration. When you try to register a message will appear stating that registration is not possible. If you have a conditionally admission, you must contact the Department of Economics no later than the final registration day – in order to keep you place on the course (given that you fulfil the prerequisites when the course commences). 

If you are planning to take an exam on a course that you have previously been registered on, you must first re-register on that course in order to get access to the relevant Canvas page and the course information. You re-register for a course via ladok in the student portal. 

As a re-registered student you can participate in lectures if there are places available. Please note that it is your own responsibility to check with the lecturer for specific information (if any) for re-registered students.

Student portal at LU

Information about how to re-register

Schedules for courses you are registered on are available via Canvas. Schedules for all the courses at the Department are available via the schedule generator TimeEdit. You enter the course code for the specific course you want to schedule for.

Data Support Network

The LUSEM Data Science Network was launched in spring 2023 with the goal to connect LUSEM students who are passionate about data science and to provide support in quantitative applications and software.

We believe in hands-on learning and strive to provide our members with practical, real-world experience. That's why we host a variety of workshops and events focused on different data science skills, from programming to data visualization to machine learning. Whether you're just starting out or looking to refine your skills, there's something for everyone.

In addition to our workshops, we also collaborate on projects that allow our members to apply what they've learned in a meaningful way. These projects are designed to be part of a professional's personal portfolio, showcasing their abilities, and demonstrating the impact they can make. By participating in these projects, members gain valuable experience working with real data and developing solutions to real-world problems.

Canvas Page: Data Analysis and Mathematics – help center
Here students can find a wide range of support material and lectures related to mathematics and data analysis, such as Python tutorials:

Data Science Lab 
The Data Science Lab is located in the LUSEM library, room B:307. Every week, a group of PhD students with expertise in quantitative applications and statistical software, such as Matlab, Python and Stata, gives labs that are open to all students at LUSEM.

We are a group of PhD students at LUSEM eager to assist you in your educational journey!

We have expertise in a broad range of quantitative applications and software, including Mathematics, Statistics, Econometrics, Quantitative Research Methods, Python, R, Excel, Java, Stata, MATLAB, Eviews, and Gretl.

We are available at the Data Science Lab in the LUSEM library room B:307 every Thursday at 14-16 to help you with your questions regarding research design and data analysis, for example for your Bachelors or Masters thesis. Just drop by!

If you have very specific questions, please email us first at supportdatalab [at] nek [dot] lu [dot] se (supportdatalab[at]nek[dot]lu[dot]se). Then we can connect you with a colleague who possesses the skills best suited to your specific needs and arrange a meeting. We look forward to hearing from you!
