See you on campus this autumn – plans to return to teaching on campus

The return to campus will take place in stages, and the aim is that teaching will have resumed in its regular form during the second half of the autumn term 2021 (early November) at the latest.

This proposal is based on the June 1 withdrawal of the government recommendation that all adult education be conducted by distance, hereby allowing new decisions by universities.

– At the same time, it’s important to remember that the pandemic is not yet over. This, however, is the plan as it stands just now until such time as we need to decide otherwise. I am very much looking forward to finally seeing colleagues and students on campus again, says the Vice-Chancellor.

The decision on Net-Based and Blended Teaching for Autumn Semester 2021 remains in place, but with certain changes:

  • August 23:
    Campus doors will no longer be locked.
  • From the semester start (Augustt 30):
    All forms of examination and other practical components/skills training can be held on campus. Look in to Learn to know about your programme or course.
  • From study period 2 (early November), unless stated otherwise:
    • Returning to the forms of teaching stated in the course and programme syllabi is encouraged: that is to say, teaching on campus can resume for all courses and programmes. It will be possible to study English taught degree programmes online during the entire autumn semester. 
    • The university recommends blended learning as the form of instruction, and teachers should plan accordingly. This will allow students to take part in their courses even if they develop covid-19 symptoms and have to stay at home.

Please note that while campus based education may resume, social distancing requirements limit the number of people allowed in each classroom so even when campus based education is possible, you might need to study online.
