The 2020/21 academic year: both online and on campus

Much focus during the 2020/21 academic year is given to measurements to handle the coronavirus situation. Currently, education at Lund University may be conducted using both digital tools (online) and in adapted campus-based forms. In such activities, consideration is to be given to university-wide decisions and to the Swedish Public Health Agency’s rules, general guidelines and recommendations for a reduced spread of infection of Covid-19. Implementation is to be preceded by risk assessment concerning the risk of spreading infection.

The restrictions concerning a maximum of 50 people and social distancing remain in place. If campus-based teaching is not possible, due to the layout of the premises or other limiting factors, teaching is to be conducted using digital tools (online).

This means that most of the education at the Faculty of Social Sciences during the academic year 2020/21 will be conducted using digital tools (online). When conducting campus-based teaching, reducing numbers in groups will be necessary. A distance of at least 1.5 metres is to be maintained between people at the same premises. Lectures intended for large student groups are to be held online. Teaching that includes practical, laboratory or aesthetic elements, as well as study trips, seminars and teaching sessions in small groups, may be conducted on campus, but in adapted forms.

Hence, it will not be possible to conduct all the faculty’s scheduled teaching components on campus. New students, along with international students (both degree students and incoming exchange students) are to be prioritised when it comes to campus-based teaching forms.
