Information about your programme

Students in Niagara


When studying at university, it is important to have the right information about your programme, your schedule, curriculum and course literature. But what are your obligations when it comes to keeping informed, and how are changes communicated?

Information about your programme

As a student at Malmö University, you are responsible for keeping yourself well-informed of your programme. Information, such as schedule changes and course information, should be communicated to the students. For instance through the Student Portal, e-mail, course websites and teaching platforms such as Its Learning.

Teachers are required to notify students at the start of the course on how and when they may be contacted. Teachers are also required to directly answer any questions from their students.

Curriculum and compulsory elements

Study plans and syllabi, also known as curriculum, must be published when programmes are available for online applications. These must specify the educational goals of the course which students must reach, as well as methods used to determine the students’ achievements. If a course contains compulsory elements, these must be stated in the course syllabus.

When is the schedule published, and what happens if it's changed?

Schedules for courses shall be available to students no later than four weeks prior to the start of the course in question. Alterations to course schedules are only permitted when special grounds exist.  Non-compulsory and unassessed course elements may however be added to the schedules. All schedule alterations shall be notified to affected students in an unambiguous manner, preferably on the university’s learning platform Canvas.

Finding a list of your course litterature

Information on compulsory course literature shall be included in the course syllabus. Subsequently published articles and other relevant work may only be added in exceptional circumstances and only in limited scope and must not be crucial to the ability of students to achieve the course’s intended learning outcomes.
