Covid-19: Teaching and exams spring semester 2021

Due to the still ongoing corona pandemic, teaching and exams for the spring semester 2021 will be adapted to ensure safety for students and teachers.

It is likely that the corona pandemic will continue into 2021, at least we must plan for that scenario.

This situation will continue to create some uncertainty regarding forms of teachings and exams, meaning that changes may occur.

Lectures still digital

The main rule is that lectures will be conducted digitally in the spring semester 2021.

On some courses, it is planned that seminars can be carried out with physical attendance. The large auditoriums must be used for such seminars, and hence the capacity for courses with physical attendance is limited. Other courses will be carried out digitally.

The semester web page for your course will be updated if changes occur, and the schedule will have information about the type of teaching.

Exam at home and in Silurveien

For the study program Master in Law, all mandatory courses will have a 4 hour school exam.

All other courses, with a few exceptions, will have a home exam.

Mandatory course work that were introduced for several courses in the Master in Law program in the fall semester 2020, will continue in the spring semester 2021. Some adjustments may occur.


All Norwegian and English exams that begins with course code JUS/JUR, shall use the scale A-F.

(One exception is JUS1111, were a pass/no-pass grade was introduced spring 2020).

For all other courses, with course codes that begins with HUMR, MARL, KRIM, RSOS, FINF and RINF, maintain the grading scale used previous to the corona situation.
