Covid-19 information

Lund University has gathered information for students and staff, and there are people to call if you need someone to talk to.

Decision regarding the 2020 autumn semester

Studies can, with necessary restrictions, be conducted on campus in autumn 2020. Please read and follow carefully the regulations for on-campus teaching.

Teaching digitally and on campus

Teaching in the first- and second-cycle in the autumn 2020 will be carried out both digitally and on university premises. On-campus teaching is to follow the Swedish Public Health Agency’s rules, general guidelines and recommendations.

Following these new guidelines, a decision from Lund University was made on 11 June regarding the education in autumn 2020. The decision states that teaching and assessment of students’ performance may be conducted on the University’s premises as of 15 June 2020, provided that the guidelines and restrictions from the Government and the Public Health Agency are followed. The decision entails that:

  •     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 50 people.
  •     the vice-chancellor tasks the dean of each faculty to decide in detail on how this is to be carried out.
