Since the Covid-19 outbreak, Lund University has carefully followed the decisions and recommendations from the Swedish Government and the Public Health Agency. The education at Lund University has since March 2020, largely been conducted digitally, with continuous adjustments made to comply with applicable restrictions and recommendations. However, since the start of the autumn 2021 semester, a gradual return to on-campus studies have been made.

The latest vice-chancellor's decision
The latest vice-chancellor’s decision was made on 17 June 2021. This decision states that the University will begin gradual and orderly adaptation to operations which are not restricted by the Covid-19 pandemic. For education, adaptation will start at the beginning of the autumn semester and be completed by 1 November 2021. If there are special grounds, completion of the adaptation process may be delayed to 16 January 2022. This decision was taken in light of the Swedish Public Health Agency's announcement that the recommendations to conduct remote teaching at universities will no longer apply as of 1 June 2021.
This means that teaching and assessment of students performance at the University will be conducted both on University premises and digitally during autumn 2021 semester, all with reference to current regulations and recommendations from the public authorities responsible and to the current rate of infection.
The University will receive students from other countries for education at Lund University to the extent possible while taking into consideration any travel restrictions.
