New recommendations and how they affect teaching at the university

The Government and the Public Health Agency of Sweden emphasise the importance of on-campus teaching at Sweden’s higher education institutions, using the appropriate infection control measures. Teaching that is partly conducted remotely may be used as a tool to reduce the number of people on teaching premises.

Södertörn University will therefore continue to plan for teaching on campus, but remote learning will remain in place where this is educationally justified. As a n infection control measure for face to face teaching, the number of places in classrooms will be reduced to be no more than 80% of the maximum seats.

Stay updated about your courses

Your timetable will tell you whether or not you will be on campus, so it is important that you keep updated about what it says. Please check your timetable regularly and stay up to date about applies to your course(s).

Due to the significant number of practical elements on Police Education, they are not included in these restrictions. However, where possible, teaching should be planned so that groups of students are not mixed and otherwise take measures to reduce the spread of infection..

Written examinations will be held, with infection control measures

The new guidelines and recommendations from the Public Health Agency clarify that examinations are prioritised educational components that should be conducted on site, if written examinations, laboratory work or other practical elements are a form of examination.

Written examinations will therefore continue to be conducted. The measures that have previously been implemented to prevent the spread of infection, such as distance markings on the floor, hand disinfectant and (voluntary) face masks for students, as well as plexiglass and visors for invigilators, will continue. Additionally, as of January, there will be extended times for entering the exam room.

As before, students who are ill or who have symptoms must stay at home and register for a resit examination.

The university recommends vaccination

The most important action we can take to reduce the spread of infection is to get vaccinated. There is a vaccination clinic External link. at Karolinska University Hospital in Huddinge. It offers appointments for COVID-19 vaccination via the Alltid Öppet app or the Regionen’s telephone booking line.

Finally, we encourage all students to continue to show consideration for others by maintaining physical distancing, staying at home if you have symptoms, and otherwise following the recommendations issued by the Public Health Agency of Sweden.
