Code of rules and procedures for the undergraduate education
The code of rules and procedures for the undergraduate and postgraduate education (excluding doctoral students) is intended as an accessible compilation of the most important central and local regulatory systems.
The document is primarily intended for three specific target groups: students, study administrators and personnel and teachers, but other groups may also be interested in the code of rules and procedures.
The ambition is that the code of rules and procedures should give sufficient information to interested readers in most cases, but also that it should, through clear references to the sources, direct those who wish to read more to each regulatory system.
In the event of any discrepancy between the purport of this text and the legal framework document on which this text is based, the wording of the underlying legal framework document is to be followed.
Who makes decisions?
The code of rules and procedures contains guidelines, which, in each case, must be applied within a context. Decisions in individual cases are made by an official, in accordance with the university delegation order. See the Vice-Chancellors delegation, as well as the delegation of each faculty. In cases where it is possible to appeal against a decision, this is stated in the text. Students who are not satisfied with the handling of a case can turn to their student union for advice and support.
Below are definitions of central concepts that recur in the text:
Admission is permission of access to a certain course, and entails the right to a particular place on a course or programme during a specific period, that is, the right to take part in teaching and examination.
In order to keep the right to a place on a course or programme the prospective student must notify his or her intention to study, in accordance with instructions in the admission notification, or other communication from the university.
Student is a person who is admitted to, and carrying out, studies at an institute of higher education. To be considered carrying out such studies the student should be registered on a course.
Registration is the documentation of the institute of higher education of the student’s intention and right to take part in a course during a set period.
Re-registration is the documentation of the institute of higher education of the student’s intention and right to take part in the teaching of the same course a second, third etc. time. Decisions on the student’s right to re-registration are made by the department/corresponding concerned.
The code of rules and procedures should be updated regularly. If you find matters unclear or miss answers to an important question, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
