Given the current situation with the coronavirus, the spring term 2021 will be a bit different (as was the autumn term 2020). However, our courses will be offered as planned and we look forward to welcoming you as a student at our department. We hope this information will answer questions that you may have.

Teaching during this time

Due to the covid-19 outbreak, the Department of English decided that all our teaching in the spring term 2021 will continue to be given as web-based teaching via Zoom. There is no teaching or examinations on campus during the current spring term for our courses.

Please note that even though teaching and examination will be online, the courses are not distance courses. That means, for instance, that lectures, workshops and seminars are given when indicated in the schedules and are not accessible in recorded form at other times. For all intents and purposes, the only difference to normal courses given on campus is that teaching will be online. Students admitted to courses with written examinations ("salstentamina") should note that these will now also take place online during the spring term as no exams can be held on Campus.

In all other respects, teaching will follow what is stipulated in the courseplans regarding, for instance, attendance requirements and other matters.

Course information

Teachers will use the e-meeting service Zoom for lectures, workshops and seminars. It is free of charge for all students at Stockholm University. Admitted students will also get access to the Athena learning platform after having registered for a course. On Athena, teachers will post more information specific to your course.
