Decision regarding the 2021 spring semester

Until furter notice, studies in the spring semester 2021 are mainly to be conducted online with exceptions only for certain labs and other exercises that can not be made online. For these exceptions there are strong regulations regarding number of people and space to keep distance. Please read and follow carefully the regulations for on-campus teaching.

Study at home

The latest decision from December 20, 2020, states that students are strongly encouraged to study from home by default until 24 January 2021. Study spaces and computer rooms are to be left accessible during this period only to a limited extent and for students who need such a space, for information retrieval, use of reference materials, access to distance learning and examination equipment. Other spaces intended for students, such as group rooms, lunch rooms, coffee rooms etc. must remain closed during this period.

Teaching digitally and at exceptions on campus

On-campus teaching is to follow the Swedish Public Health Agency’s rules, general guidelines and recommendations, as well as local regulations by Lund University.

  •     priority is to be given to teaching and assessment that is impossible, or possible only with great difficulty, to conduct remotely.
  •     such activities are to be preceded by a risk assessment concerning the risk of spreading infection.
  •     no gatherings are to be of more than 8 people.
  •     the vice-chancellor tasks the dean of each faculty to decide in detail on how this is to be carried out.
