Welcome to Lund University!

Student Admission – Autumn Semester 2020

Information regarding the autumn semester due to the Coronavirus

Education at Lund University may as of 15 June 2020 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.

The 2020 autumn semester: both online and on campus

At the Joint Faculties of Humanities and Theology, Lund University, this means that education will be conducted both on campus and through digital tools.

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).
