Information regarding the autumn semester due to the Coronavirus

On 29 May, the Swedish Government decided that the recommendation that universities should conduct all education online will end on 15 June 2020. This means that studies can be conducted on campus in autumn 2020, provided that the guidelines and restrictions from the Government and the Public Health Agency are followed.

For the Department of Arts and Cultural Sciences at Lund University this means that education will be carried out both on the University’s premises and via digital tools this autumn.

This because no gatherings are to be bigger than a maximum of 50 people and the need of social distancing. The planning of timetables and the use of premises is to be carried out to ensure that there is no overcrowding in the rooms or regarding entry and exit to premises at LUX building/Campus Helsingborg.

More information about your course/programme will be sent out in August. You can also login to the learning platform Canvas when you have activated your student account.

For now we want you to prepar for education both on campus and online with digital tools. The introductory meeting will most likely be online.
