Latest news - Teaching on campus and at a distance HT-2021
The Vice-Chancellor has made a decision on teaching and examination, which in short means an adapted return to campus. This means that parts of the teaching are conducted on campus and parts of the teaching are conducted at a distance.
You will find comprehensive information for all our target groups on our main page about Corona.
What does this mean for my education?
If you have questions about teaching and examination, contact the course / program manager, and stay updated about the course information available on Canvas. There are also course / program managers who inform you about any exceptions to be made from a distance and how it should be done.
We will keep both students and employees continuously informed about the situation and any changes decided on by university leadership. Stay up to date via the website and the newsletter that is sent out to all students.
This applies to examination
Examinations are planned to continue at a distance. Examination on campus may take place in cases where it is not possible to complete at a distance. The responsible head of department makes a special decision on deviations from the from the Vice-Chancellors decision.
Decisions on how the examination is to be carried out must be available to you as a student no later than at the start of the course.
If for some reason you are unable to participate in an activity that takes place on campus, it is important that you talk to the responsible teacher to find out if there is any possibility of adapting the activity. In the exceptional cases where examinations take place on campus, we have taken a number of measures to reduce the risk of the spread of infection.
You who belong to a risk group or for other reasons cannot come to campus
If you are a student and belong to a risk group, in accordance with the National Board of Health's advice, you should consult a doctor about what you can do to reduce the risk of becoming ill with Covid-19.

About internship, externally placed teaching etc.
If you are going to conduct externally placed teaching and/or examination such as degree work and internship, you must follow guidelines and recommendations from the host organization. To the extent that guidelines or recommendations would lead to you as a student not being able to carry out planned tasks, the university should try to resolve the situation in each individual case.
For students who have VFU, the same rules apply as for staff at schools and in health care. As long as schools, preschools and health care activities are ongoing and have staff on duty, students will also continue to do their VFU. VFU is a part of the education that can not be replaced by theoretical elements.
