Distance and campus teaching at the department in the spring of 2022. FAQ
We had planned for campus teaching at our department in the spring semester of 2022, but under the current circumstances with the pandemic, we are switching to distance teaching on Zoom on a lot of courses to reduce crowding on campus. This is in accordance with the recommendations of the Swedish Public Health Agency and Stockholm University. Please see respective course schedule and the course platform Athena.

Rules and regulations
Stockholm University is a public authority. This means that we must comply with a wide range of laws and ordinances when handling various matters. The University’s research and education are governed by, for example, the Higher Education Act, the Higher Education Ordinance, copyright regulations, confidentiality laws, and contract laws.
Read our rules and regulations
It is important that students and employees are familiar with the University’s regulations concerning education and examinations, as well as the regulations concerning disci-plinary matters and measures in the Higher Education Ordinance.
Disciplinary measures can be taken against students who:
- with forbidden means of assistance or in any other way try to deceive in exams or when another study achievement is to be evaluated
- disturb or prevent instruction, exams or other activities within the framework of education at the university
- disturb or prevent activities in the university library or on any other special premises at the university.
Certain forms of cheating, for example forgery of documents or false certification, fall under the penal code and can thus lead to criminal charges.
All students at Stockholm University are entitled to equal treatment and respect irrespective of sex, transgender identity or expression, ethnicity, religion or other belief, disability, sexual orientation or age.
If a student subjects another student or an employee at the university to harassment (for example sexual harassment or harassment due to religion, sex, ethnicity or disability), disciplinary measures shall be taken against this student.
Disciplinary measures must be taken no longer than two years after the offence has been committed.
