Recommendations on coronavirus
Recommendation on distance education ceases to apply
The recommendation of the Public Health Agency of Sweden on distance teaching and assessment at universities and other higher education institutions will cease to apply on 16 June. Most courses in the autumn will therefore be given on campus, with certain digital elements.
All students, staff, visitors and others engaged in activities at the University must follow the recommendations in effect to reduce the spread of infection in society. Gatherings of more than 50 people should be avoided and efforts should be made to ensure physical distancing in University premises. If the Public Health Agency’s recommendations on the number of people change, the University’s decision will also change.
