This applies to students autumn 2021

There is still great uncertainty about how teaching will be conducted in the autumn of 2021.

We will work based on the following assessments:

  • We estimate that we can partly return to campus teaching in study period 1 (weeks 35-43). It will be a mixture of campus teaching and digital teaching.
  • All teaching in groups with over 30 students will be performed digitally.
  • Teaching for groups of a maximum of 30 students is preferably located on campus.
  • All students will have campus teaching but we will prioritize the novice students.
