The rights and obligations of students
The list of rights for Lund University students includes rights and obligations involving:
- study environment,
- registration of course participation and exam results,
- course planning and timetabling,
- compulsory components,
- degree projects,
- course evaluations, and
The rights apply to first and second cycle students. The implementation of the points in the document is a matter for the staff of the courses and programmes, departments and faculties.
Discrimination and other victimisation shall not take place at Lund University. It is, therefore, important that you note and take action when a student feels subjected to actions of this kind.
The University draws up an equal opportunities plan every year. The plan aims to promote the rights and obligations of students, regardless of:
- religion or other belief,
- disability, or
- sexual orientation.
The plan also aims to prevent harassment.
