Covid-19 and the 2021 autumn semester

Autumn 2021 - both digital and on campus

The 2021 autumn semester planning assumes that teaching and assessment will be conducted both digitally and on campus, provided that the relevant public authorities’ regulations and recommendations allow campus-based teaching.

As a faculty, we do our best to ensure that you will receive education of the highest possible quality, while we adapt the teaching format and our premises to limit the risk of the spread of infection. 

Programme/course specific information

As a student, you will find specific course and programme information at your department’s website or learning platform.

Study spaces, computer rooms and libraries

As a student, you should currently only stay on campus if, for example:

  • You need to search for information that you cannot access from home
  • You need to use reference material
  • You need access to equipment for distance learning and examination.

If you need to visit the faculty campuses, collective responsibility for maintaining a safe study environment is vital. It is therefore important to:

  • Keep at least 1,5 meter distance to other visitors 
  • Stay at home if you have symptoms of a cold or illness 
  • Wash hands often and thoroughly or use hand sanitiser
  • Respect the current delimitations of the premises 
  • Respect the arrangement of furniture in classrooms and do not move tables and chairs
