The purpose of this paper is to contribute to the knowledge of how the pandemic has affected teaching at the university level. The point of departure for this paper is the following research question: How has the change from teaching on campus to on-line teaching affected the students’ learning during the autumn term of 2020 and until present time? To answer this question a quantitative survey was conducted among 352 graduate students attending different courses. When the data had been analysed it was decided to interview 18 of the students, randomly chosen among the respondents. The purpose of the interviews was to get a deeper understanding of some of the results from the survey. The study shows among other things that the pandemic triggered unforeseen results regarding more general changes in the pedagogy used in the courses with a switch to a more flexible teaching approach, both in terms of adaptability to sudden changes and in terms of receptivity to the needs of students.
