Information about teaching and exams, Spring term 2021, update

The Department of Economics follows the development of COVID-19 and seeks to adapt to the circumstances. The Department has now decided about the teaching and examinations at bachelor’s and master’s levels for the whole Spring term 2021, including retake exams in August.

All courses will be taught online. For teaching that takes place via Zoom and live, it is important that students participate with the camera turned on. It increases concentration and makes the teaching more similar to on-campus teaching.

All on-campus exams will be replaced with online exams (both first and retake exams).

For bachelor’s and master’s theses the seminars will be conducted online with the presence of defending author(s), opponent(s) and the examiner. There are no other requirements on attendance (however, we strongly encourage students to participate in other seminars as well).

Both first and retake exams, which are replaced by online exams and are scheduled on a weekend, may be re-scheduled to a weekday.

More information will be published on each course’s Athena site.
