Firstly, we would like to stress that even if on-campus teaching is cancelled, we do continue with the programme and exams.

As we understand that in these confusing times you must have a lot of questions and we hope this FAQ helps. If you still have questions, please contact the education desk.

Courses: lectures, tutorials and exams

  • Are all courses cancelled?

    There will be no on campus teaching (lectures, tutorials, working groups, master thesis meetings, etc.) until further notice, but courses (i.e. the study modules) will continue. For each course, the best course of action will be decided by the course coordinator. Often, this means online lectures will be made available through Canvas. Tutorials will mostly be replaced by assignments or online discussions through Canvas. Please check the new teaching methods for your courses on Canvas, they will be made available as soon as possible, please check canvas regularly.

  • Are the tutorials cancelled?

    Tutorials will mostly be replaced by assignments or online discussions through Canvas. Please check the new teaching methods for your courses on Canvas, they will be made available as soon as possible, please check canvas regularly.

  • Will exams be cancelled or postponed?

    The board of the psychology department has decided to maintain the regular programme and exams will not be cancelled or postponed, but offered remotely. Please check the Canvas page of your course for more information.

    We maintain the regular programme to give students the possibility to keep to their planned programme. We of course understand if, for you it may not be possible to concentrate on your studies, or even to study at all. We understand that you may experience anxiety and stress and/or need to take care of others. The summer resits will of course continue as planned as well, and we do expect a lot of students will need to do a summer resit, but we think it’s very important to offer students the possibility to avoid summer resits and delays in their studies.

  • Research credits: can I still gather research credits?

    All research credits you can receive requiring physical attendance are cancelled until further notice, but (most) online research will continue. Should you need any more credits, you may gather them by participating in online research projects.
