Information about your programme

Students in classroom

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 obligatory attendance

Study plans and syllabi, also known as curriculum, must be established when programmes are published 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.

Obligatory attendance, when you have to attend class, has to be mentioned in the syllabus. This can only be required when attendance is essential to reaching the educational goals of the course.

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

The course schedule should be available no later than four weeks before the course starts. Changes to the schedule should only be made if there are particular reasons to do so, for example, due to illness or an accident.  

All schedule changes should be communicated to the concerned students, firstly through the university’s teaching platform, Its Learning.

Finding a list of your course litterature

A list of obligatory course literature should be published no later than two months before the course starts. Recently published articles and other relevant works may be added as an exception.
