Your rights and responsibilities

As a student at the Faculty of Medicine, you have both responsibilities and rights in relation to the faculty and the University.

Student rights might involve student influence, the student work environment, implementation of exams and degree projects and much more. 

Students’ rights and responsibilities are gathered in the List of Rights, which is formulated to cover the most common situations that can arise during a student’s studies. In the event that a right is not covered in the list, students can turn to the student unions for help and support.

On Lund University’s main website, you can familiarise yourself with the eight sections of the List of Rights.
