Covid-19 and the academic year 2020/21 (click for Swedish)

Lund University, and the Department of Physics, is following the Swedish Government’s and Public Health Authority’s recommendations and guidelines regarding measures to reduce the spread of the coronavirus (Covid-19).

Stricter restrictions (Update 29 January)

The Lund University vice chancellor has decided that as of 18 January, all activities that are not necessary to carry out with a physical presence on the University's premises are to be carried out digitally. This decision applies until further notice.

The department of Physics follows this decision and other guidelines, regulations, general advice and recommendations for preventing and mitigating the spread of Covid-19. Therefore, all teaching at the department of Physics will be carried out digitally until further notice.

The decision states that students are encouraged to study from home from now on. Study spaces and computer rooms are to be left accessible during this period only to a limited extent.


During the pandemic, the best way to get in touch with members of our staff is via email or phone. You will find contact information on this site.

Teaching is conducted mainly online

Teaching and examination has been conducted mainly online this autumn semester with some hybrid exceptions. Due to the current spread of infection, this will also be the case during the spring semester 2021.

Teaching and examination at the Department of Physics needs to be conducted online as far as possible, with no physical attendance on University premises.

The current assessment is that teaching will have to be carried out mainly online, also for the remainder of the spring semester. This assessment, and the current decisions and recommendations, may change if the spread of infection changes.

The above applies to all courses and programmes with a few exceptions, such as practical elements, for instance laboratory work, that cannot be completed digitally. Any practical teaching on campus will be carried out with outmost consideration taken to student and staff safety.

Programme/course specific information

As a student at the Department of Physics,you will receive updates from the department, via Canvas or other channels, in case of any changes to the current teaching arrangements.

A safe study environment – everyone’s responsibility

We all have to act responsibly for maintaining a safe study environment. It is therefore very important that you:

•    Keep your distance to other people and avoid crowding.

•    Stay at home if you have symptoms of a cold or illness.

•    Wash hands often and thoroughly or use hand sanitiser.

•    Leave the classroom and corridor after a lesson is over.

•    Respect the current delimitations of the premises.

•    Respect the arrangement of furniture and do not move tables and chairs.

•    Do not put out furniture that has been cleared away.

Opening hours and access to our premises may change at short notice.
