Disciplinary matters

Here you will find information on what constitutes a disciplinary offence and how disciplinary matters are processed. You will also find templates on how Lund University employees can report suspected disciplinary offences.

Provisions on actions against students who, for example, cheat on an exam, violate codes of conduct, or harass others can be found in chapter 10 of the Higher Education Ordinance (1993:100) on the website for the Swedish Council for Higher Education.

Procedures for dealing with disciplinary matters:

Students involved in disciplinary cases may seek support and advice from the Student Health Counselling and the Student Ombudsman at Lund University Student Unions (if the case involves a first or second cycle student) or the Doctoral Student Ombudsman (if the case involves a doctoral student).

Should you file a report, feel free to inform the student in question about these opportunities for support. Contact information for the Student Health Service, the Student Ombudsman and the Doctoral Student Ombudsman can be found under “Contact”.

For any questions regarding disciplinary matters in general, or about your case specifically, please contact Johanna Alhem or Nicolina Levander at the Legal Division. See “Contact” for contact information for the Legal Division.
