This is an old tradition in the university world. Most seminars and lectures start at a quarter past the hour, even if the starting time is given as on the hour in the timetable or summons. Ask the teacher concerned if you are unsure.
Each semester you are active at the Centre, i.e. study and/or sit examinations, you must also be registered so that your results can be entered in LADOK, the University’s computer system for study results. Registration is done by the offices which administer the different subjects in connection with course start. Please see
If you are an exchange student, you must fill in an enrolment form at the beginning of the term in consultation with your coordinator. The enrolment form is very important because it ensures that you will be registered on the right course.
The StiL ID is a ‘key’ to many online information functions for students and is needed, among other things, to use the computers in the library and computer room, to check your credits and grades online and to access licensed electronic literature. Formerly the StiL ID was only created when students registered for a course or programme, but now it is created and sent home to students upon admission. Please note, however, that if you apply late for a course your StiL ID will also be late.
It is important that you read your emails in your StiL account regularly. As a new student you will receive an email address in connection with receiving your StiL ID. If you already have a private email address, you can forward your student emails to it if you wish, but it is very important that you check your emails regularly, otherwise you may miss important information, for example from your teacher (e.g. last-minute timetable changes).
When you begin studying at Lund University you become registered on the course/courses you have chosen. It is important that you inform the office for the subject concerned if you change your plans and do not wish to complete the course/courses.
If you are an exchange student – speak to your co-ordinator first about your choice of courses and any possible interruptions!
In addition to the teaching staff on the courses you have chosen, the Centre’s study advisors and the course administrators for the various teaching committees, you may also meet these other members of staff:
The SOL Board has prepared a Crisis and Disaster Plan for the Centre for Languages and Literature in order to create preparedness for coherent and clear leadership, and to develop routines for action in the case of serious events.
