Information for newly admitted students – autumn 2020

A warm welcome to Lund University and the Faculty of Medicine! This page contains a collection of information that will be useful for you when you are preparing for your degree studies during the current global Covid-19 situation.

Arrangements for the autumn semester

The Faculty of Medicine hope that the autumn semester 2020 will be conducted as regular campus-based teaching, including classroom-based teaching as well as offering students the opportunity to go on exchanges, etc. At present no one can guarantee that this will be possible. The Faculty is closely monitoring the situation and follows the advice of national governmental agencies.

The Faculty is preparing to deliver all programmes online during the autumn of 2020 if admitted students cannot travel to Lund or Malmö. Hence, all admitted students that accept a study seat will be able to carry out their studies online if the global situation regarding Covid-19 demands this.

The decision regarding regular campus-based education vs. online education is expected in early August. In the meanwhile, continue to arrange for studies in Sweden, including residence permit (if applicable), funding and housing.
