Department of English

Courses and Teaching

Academic Quarter

The department uses the "academic quarter" policy which means that lectures and seminars scheduled on the hour begin at quarter past. Each lecture hour is 45 minutes. If the schedule says 14–16, then you will begin class at 14:15. Please note that this rule does not apply to examinations, which are always written at the exact time.

Course Literature

Reading lists for each course are available in the course syllabus, which can be found in the Student Portal. Course books are available for purchase online or from the two main book stores in Uppsala. Both Studentbokhandeln and Akademibokhandeln LundeQ are notified before each term begins of the required reading. There are also online sites where you may buy and sell used course books. See also sale advertisements on our notice board.

Course evaluations

Course evaluations are usually done at the end of a course or course module.
