Arriving to Lund

The covid-19 situation 2020

On 29 May 2020, the Swedish Government announced that the recommendation that universities should conduct education online will end on 15 June 2020. This means that studies can be, with necessary restrictions, conducted on campus in autumn 2020. Following these new guidelines, a decision from Lund University was announced on 11 June and states that education may be conducted on campus in autumn 2020, as long as the restrictions and guidelines from the Government and the Public Health Agency are followed.

The introductory meeting is important

It is a requirement that you attend the introductory meeting and the call if you have been admitted to an education. This allows you to keep your place on the course. If you can't come, you must say until I advance. Registration takes place in conjunction with the introductory meeting.

Student on the Bachelor Programme

The first autumn semester starts with the course “An Introduction to the Global Environment (code NGEA01)”, followed by “Theories and Methods of Physical Geography (NGEA07)”. Note that these courses contain excursions and significant field components that requires physical presence in Lund. In the autumn semester 2020, all field activities will be conducted within biking range from the university and with due respect of recommendations from the health authorities.

Student on Master Programmes

For Physical Geography and Ecosystem Science, as well as Atmospheric Sciences and Biogeochemical Cycles (Geomatic see below); the autumn starts with “Greenhouse gases and biogeochemical cycles (NGEN14)” followed by “Climate Change and its Impacts on the Environment (NGEN01)”. Note that these courses contain excursions and significant field components that requires physical presence in Lund. In the autumn semester 2020, all field activities will be conducted within biking range from the university and with due respect of recommendations from the health authorities.

For Geomatics master students here are to alternative paths for this, depending on your background in GIS. All components of the courses in the Geomatics program are possible to achieve without physical presence in Lund, hence Internet based distance learning will be adopted during the Corona virus regulations. To participate in the distance learning activities, you need Internet access and a PC. If you are using Mac, please contact the course coordinators for details (for Mac-owners we may arrange remote access to our computer labs). If you are present in Lund, some meeting activities will be arranged.
