General programme information

The Master Programme in Earth Sciences will enable you to learn about the interdependency of Earth Systems and gain advanced skills in specific areas within Earth Sciences. Explore climate change from the perspectives of Earth processes occurring in the atmosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere, lithosphere and biosphere. Find a balance between using and preserving Earths resources and reducing the environmental impact for a healthy sustainable future.

The Department of Earth Sciences at Uppsala University is one of the most comprehensive academic departments of its kind in Europe. Research in Earth Science focuses on subjects that range from the Earths core to the atmosphere, on scales from sub-microscopic minerals and fossils to the formation of mountains and oceans, and in time from the formation of the Earth to the processes currently reshaping the planet.

New study administrative system in October - new dates!
2018-09-11 12:36

In October our present documentation system for study results, Uppdok, will be replaced by an updated version called New Ladok. It is a national documentation system for study results that is currently being introduced at many Swedish universities.

What effects will the introduction of New Ladok have?

During the transition to New Ladok, which will happen between 27 September and 8 October 2018, it will not be possible to register any new information or results in any study related administrative system at Uppsala University. The function Course registrations in the Student portal will close on 24 September. It will not be possible to register for courses, report study results or administer other related matters, such as approved leave from studies, between 27 September and 8 October. It is therefore of utmost importance that you register for the courses and programmes that you will be taking in Autumn 2018 in time!

The Student portal will have limited functionality during this time period. However, for most of the time period you will access course and programme pages including all material and the existing functions, but there will be times when the Student portal will be completely closed. Your department and teachers will be informed on this and adapt to these temporary changes. As soon as the exact dates are confirmed, information will be updated.

Exams will run as planned, but from 26 September you will not be able to see your current examination registrations or your individual anonymity codes for these exams.

Please note! Between 14 September and 11 October you will not be able to apply for a degree certificate.

What change in routines will New Ladok mean to you as a student after the system update?

After 8 October you will see minor changes in the Student portal. A new tab called “My Ladok” has been added, where you among other things can find internet links to request national grade transcripts, change your postal address and make degree applications.

Aside from this, the Student portal will mostly function as before. The Student portal will continue to be your gateway to study related matters. You will continue to administer course registrations and examination registrations just as before. In the time period following the system update, the departments may experience a temporary but significant increase in their administration, which is why we kindly ask you to be understanding if some matters take a little longer time than usual.
