Reading list

These web pages serve as a resource for those writing course syllabuses. The material provided includes general advice and suggestions as well as information about important rules and guidelines for course syllabuses that can be found in both local regulations and the Higher Education Ordinance.


After March 15, Gubas and Convertus can no longer be used to create new syllabuses; you can only use them to view existing syllabuses and reading lists. On April 15, 2024, Gubas Kursplan will be replaced by the national system Ladok. Read more about the transition here (login required). This web resource will be updated in conjunction with the transition.

The syllabus includes a reading list and/or a list of other relevant course material. The list(s) should be prepared and published in the University's database as an appendix to the syllabus. The appendix can be established later than the syllabus, but not later than 8 weeks before the start of the course, in order to enable the recording of course literature for students with a need for recorded material. The reading list should, as far as possible, indicate the approximate number of pages and, where appropriate, other relevant learning material.
