There is a set schedule for all the modules on Thursdays, 14-16 via Zoom. Teaching in the autumn term starts in week 36 and ends in week 03. The first meeting will take place on Thursday, September 5th.

You will find the Zoom link for our meetings on the learning platform Canvas.

Students attending courses in English at the University of Gävle are required to attend class in order to receive a passing grade. Studying English involves obtaining subject knowledge, but also improving one’s ability and confidence to speak and write English. This can only take place if students meet their teachers and actively participate. Furthermore, most modules feature live, face-to-face, group work in order to accommodate the general course objective that “students should be able to compare and critically evaluate one’s own and others' texts and presentations”.

Failure to participate in weekly class sessions and activities will therefore make it impossible to attain a course objective. For these reasons, we require attendance, with only minor exceptions. To take exams and pass the course, students must attend all obligatory seminars.

A syllabus and schedule for the first module, Written Communication, including the timetable with reading instructions, will be posted on Canvas two weeks prior to the start of the course. Since this course runs at 50%, you should be prepared to allocate approximately 20 hours per week to your studies. This includes 2 hours of Zoom, but also includes your individual time spent preparing, reading and writing assignments.

Make sure you order the course literature for the first two modules right away. You will not be able to access the course page on Canvas until mid-August, but the literature list can be found in the course plan which is part of this welcome letter.

The learning platform Canvas is our main channel for communication and where you will find material such as the timetable, instructions, assignments, etc. This is also where the different instructors will post general announcements concerning the course and the individual sessions. Therefore, check the course Canvas page regularly.

If you need support with any technical issues concerning Canvas, contact the support services.

The syllabus (kursplan) is a legally binding document for teachers and students alike. Students should therefore refrain from requesting instructors to change the course content or shorten the reading list, for example.

Cheating and plagiarizing are serious academic offences, which result in failing the module in question and being reported to the university’s disciplinary board. To learn about cheating and get basic information on how to avoid it, please read this information:

You will also be asked to take a knowledge test about cheating on Canvas before you can access any of the course material.
