Coronavirus (Covid-19) FAQs

If you are a newly admitted degree student or if you have been nominated for exchange studies at Lund University, you probably have questions about how the coronavirus pandemic will affect you and your future studies. We have therefore compiled FAQs that will be updated continuously as we receive more information from the Government and relevant authorities in Sweden.

On 29 May 2020, the Swedish Government announced that the recommendation that universities should conduct education online would end on 15 June 2020. This meant that studies could be, with necessary restrictions, conducted on campus in autumn 2020. Following these guidelines, a decision from Lund University was announced on 11 June and stated that education could be conducted on campus in autumn 2020, as long as the restrictions and guidelines from the Government and the Public Health Agency were followed. It was up to each Dean to plan the education at their faculty. On 23 October 2020 this decision was extended to also include the spring semester 2021.

Following new decisions from mid-December 2020 and mid-January 2021, all teaching should be conducted digitally as far as far possible, with no physical attendance on Lund University premises until further notice.
