Academic quarter

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.

Student account

The Student account 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 Student account 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 Student account 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).

Non-completion of studies

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!

Staff at the Centre for Languages and Literature

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 Head of Department, who is Chair of the Centre’s Board and who is responsible for, and leads the work at, the Centre;
  • Deputy Heads of Department (one for undergraduate courses and one for research studies and research), who also sit on the Centre’s Board and who take care of everyday business on an overall level in cooperation with the Head of Department;
  • Heads of sections, one for each one of the Centre’s five sections, who lead, and are responsible for, the everyday work at teaching committee level;
  • Directors of Studies, who, among other things, plan the teaching and staffing within the different subjects, function as examiners on courses and are responsible for curriculum development, often using course evaluations as their starting point. The deputy directors of studies are the ones whom you as a student should contact if you have complaints about, or comments on, the teaching. 

Crisis and Disaster plan

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.
