Information regarding the autumn semester due to the Coronavirus

Teaching and examination at all levels will during the autumn semester need to be conducted both online and on campus at least for the first half of the semester. For campus-based elements, it still needs to be possible to keep distance in our premises. New decisions regarding the second half of the semester (2021-11-01–2022-01-16) will be taken in August.

You will receive more information about how your particular course/programme will be carried out when we send out our welcome e-mail and via your Canvas learning platform. For now we want you to prepar for education both on campus and online with digital tools. Courses and programmes with many students will most likely have a great part of the teaching and examination digitally.

The decision can be changed if there is new decisions by the vice-chancellor at Lund University or other recommendations from authorities and the government are issued.
