Autumn Semester 2021

The autumn semester 2021 starts officially on Monday 30 August and ends on Sunday 16 January 2022. No classes are scheduled during the winter holidays, that is from 23 December 2021 to 6 January 2022.

Regarding admission

Courses and programmes starting in the autumn semester have been open for applications on and/or its Swedish counterpart, in two admission rounds. 

In the first admission round (deadline 15 January) only the Bachelor's programme in mathematics has been open for applications and the admission results have already been communicated to all applicants. See information for new students.

Applicants in the second admission round (deadline 15 April) will receive a first notification of selection results on 16 July. It is extremely important to reply to this notification and accept or decline the offered study place by 23 July. Applicants who do not reply by this date will lose any places (accepted or on the waiting list) that they have been offered. The second notification of selection results will be communicated on 29 July.

Some of the courses in mathematics, numerical analysis and mathematical statistics at the Faculty of Science will be opened for late applications in August. All late applicants will be placed on the waiting list in chronological order.

Admitted students will receive more information regarding the courses in August. Applicants placed on the admission's waiting list will receive a decision regarding admission after the introductory meetings.

Teaching in the autumn 2021 in the light of the Corona situation

In order to ensure a safe study and working environment for students and employees, we are making decisions on a continuous basis, based on current recommendations from the responsible authorities. The information below will therefore be updated continuously.

Teaching to take place both digitally and on campus

Teaching will be carried out both digitally and on university premises. A gradual return to teaching and assessment on campus will begin on 17 August and is to be completed by 1 November 2021.

On-campus teaching is to follow the Swedish Public Health Agency’s rules, general guidelines and recommendations. Physical gatherings should include as few people as possible.

Prioritisation of teaching and assessment on campus

The following components and student groups are to be prioritised (in no particular order) when it comes to teaching and assessment on campus.

  • Assessments which cannot be conducted digitally or only with great difficulty.

  • Teaching sessions featuring practical and laboratory elements.

  • Education for international students whose residence permits depend on their education largely being provided on site, to the extent possible in compliance with the University’s decision on adaptations and in appropriately small groups after a risk assessment. Introduction of recently arrived international students can take place on site provided the University’s decisions are applied.

  • New students commencing their studies in the 2021 autumn semester, and students who started during the 2020 spring semester, the 2020 autumn semester and the 2021 spring semester, and who have mainly been taught online.

  • The Public Health Agency recommends that students who find it difficult to study at home or have special needs for some other reason should be prioritised for teaching on site in campus premises.

Risk assessments will be carried out for every course

A risk assessment on the risk of spread of infection of Covid-19 will be carried out for every course offered at the Faculty of Science. Further information about how your courses will be conducted is to be published on the course websites.
