Autumn 2020

Here you can read about teaching and exams at CBS in the autumn 2020


Before you apply to CBS

Before you apply for a study programme at CBS, you should carefully consider if you really want to study. This is especially important this year where COVID-19 has made a lot of students apply for a study programme because the do not feel they have any other options. If you originally planned to spend a year or two traveling or working, then studying might not necessarily be the best back-up plan.

Teaching and study start autumn 2020

We expect that COVID-19 will still be a significant societal issue this autumn, and that there will still be restrictions on how many people can gather combined with continued requirements of social distancing. Therefore, we cannot conduct all classes on campus. For the majority of students this will mean that about half of their classes will be on campus and half will be online.

We know that it is very important for new students to have the opportunity to get to know their fellow students and CBS from the start. We are doing all we can to ensure that as many activities as possible will be held on campus.

You should be prepared for both the intro week and classes to be conducted in smaller groups, and that events that would normally host many students at once will be cancelled. This will allow you to get to know your own class and perhaps one other class very well. But you will not meet as many students from other years or other programmes as much in the beginning.

Principles for teaching and exams in the autumn

CBS wish to exercise due diligence and continue to ensure the quality of our all our study programmes. Therefore, we have already decided on a number of principles for teaching and exams during the autumn semester:

  • that around 50% of the teaching you receive will be on campus
  • that lectures and other classes with more than 100 students will be changed to smaller classes or be conducted online
  • that classes with less than 100 students may be conducted on campus – but they might also be conducted online
  • that some courses may be a mixture of online classes and on campus classes
  • that exams will be planned in such a way that they can be changed to an online version should it become necessary
  • that the number of written exams will be reduced
