FAQ: Courses and classes

What does distance learning mean? Will all teaching be digital?

This means that all lectures, seminars, group discussions, assessment and exams will take place online using digital technology. You will receive all the information you need to be able to follow the online teaching from your teacher, via the Student Portal.

Will my course be affected or cancelled?

Contact your department. Talk with your programme or course coordinator.
Why isn’t the University cancelling exams?
From 18 March onwards all exams will be held remotely.

Will coronavirus affect planned exchange studies in the 2020 autumn semester?

In the current situation, it is difficult to predict developments but we hope to be back to normal for the 2020 autumn semester. In case this is not so, and for your own sense of security and planning, we encourage you to apply for courses at Uppsala University in the 2020 autumn semester, despite plans for exchange studies. You apply for courses as usual at antagning.se before 15 April and the University will process your course choices in parallel with your planned exchange studies so that you will not have to worry about your status as a student or your studies even if the consequences of COVID-19 last longer.

If you have any questions or if there is anything you wonder about, please contact the Division for Internationalisation via mobility@uu.se.

How much does the University have to adapt its teaching so that I can complete my studies?

The syllabus applies, which means that students are subject to the same requirements and the mode of examination that is specified must be followed. The information in the syllabus about type of instruction also applies, although unless the syllabus clearly states otherwise, the teaching provided can be changed e.g. by switching to more online lectures.
