Continued online teaching and examination until 29 August

Linnaeus University extends online teaching and examination until 29 August. During this period, all teaching and all examinations that can be carried out in online form should be carried out online. Physical teaching and examination may take place only in cases where this is necessary.

Since many factors are still uncertain concerning the autumn semester, we are planning for two different scenarios, one in which we are back in our facilities and one in which we continue online. More information will be presented at a later stage when we know what the situation for the autumn semester looks like.

If you do not have on-campus teaching in your timetable, we encourage you to study from home to as large an extent as possible. However, our facilities will remain open and can be used for self-studies. The University Library, for instance, is open but with limited opening hours.

As for physical presence in our facilities, we prioritise:

  • practical elements that cannot be carried out online
  • examination that is difficult to carry out online
  • final examinations and compulsory elements on final year of programmes that can not be conducted digitally

Within the university’s facilities, thinning out and keeping the distance apply to all teaching, examination and all other meetings, and when spending time in other way within the university’s facilities. We avoid physical contact, crowding and gatherings of more than 50 people.

Linnaeus University follows the national and local regulations, public guidelines and recommendations decided on by the Public Health Agency of Sweden or the Swedish Government to reduce the spread of infection. The limit of a maximum of eight people at public gatherings does not apply to teaching, examination or other internal activities at universities and university colleges.
