Teaching at Dalarna University

As of November 24, public gatherings and events with more than eight people are prohibited. These tighter rules do not apply to higher education institutions such as Dalarna University because teaching and examinations are not considered to be public gatherings or events.

In the autumn semester 2020, courses may be entirely net-based (online), entirely campus-based or a combination of these two. Information on this for each specific programme and course can be found on the Dalarna University learning platform Learn. Forms of examination may change.

Dalarna University buildings will remain open for certain limited campus teaching and for students to work individually in well-ventilated places with Internet connection and access to computers. The university has modified its facilities to ensure that social / physical distancing is possible. To access certain areas of campus, you will need to use your keycard. Staff and students must avoid meeting in groups in university buildings.
