In-person teaching – summer semester 2021-2022

published on 9 February 2022

The University of Luxembourg is planning for a generalised in-person teaching for the summer semester 2021-2022.

Study programmes should not plan for a full remote teaching curriculum.

In the case of an exceptional situation linked to COVID-19 (e.g., flight cancelation of incoming teacher, teacher tests positive to COVID-19, etc.) the class can take place in remote for the period in which the exceptional situation applies. The class will resume in-person teaching as soon as conditions allow.

For up-to-date information on teaching and work please consult remote.uni.lu and the general guidelines on health and safety rules.

Specifics linked to in-person teaching during the summer semester are as follows:

  • All students enrolled at the University of Luxembourg must be physically present in Luxembourg and on campus during the summer semester 2021-2022.
  • Classrooms can be used at their full capacity, in line with their standard seating configuration.
  • Students can be excused from in-person teaching if they have tested positive to COVID-19 or meet the health vulnerability criteria as defined by the Luxembourg Government. Students who have tested positive to COVID-19 or meet at least one of the vulnerability criteria must contact the Study Programme Administrator (SPA) and provide a medical certificate attesting of the condition. Students who wish to request to be exempted from attending in-person teaching on other vulnerability criteria must contact the committee for reasonable adjustments at contact.car@uni.lu.
  • Students who are excused from in-person attendance must be offered a remote option of teaching and learning (e.g., livestream, access to pre-recorded lectures, study material, etc.). These students must comply with all the course requirements and participate in exams. The obligation de présence/attendance requirement includes remote participation, but being able to do only remote work does not excuse someone from taking exams or submitting the work that is required by their teacher.
  • For students, teaching activities are not held under the COVID-check regime.
  • Teachers and vacataires have to comply with the COVID-check 3G regime as per the COVID-check guidelines of the University.
  • Both teachers and students are encouraged to use self-tests prior to attending on-site classes.
  • Wearing of masks in classrooms is mandatory for all students for the entire duration of the presence in the classroom. Teachers can opt to teach with or without mask.
