Södertörn University has converted to distance education – no teaching on university premises from Wednesday 18 March

The Swedish Government recommends that after 18 March all higher education institutions move to distance education. Södertörn University has followed this recommendation and there will be no teaching on university premises until further notice. This is likely to apply throughout the spring semester. All written examinations will be replaced by other forms of examination for the entire spring semester. Students are asked to stay updated about their course or programme via SH-StudyWeb. Staff and students can access the university premises with their keycards and both Infocenter and the library are open. Please remember to maintain social distancing when on university premises. We have chosen to close all the group rooms in the library to reduce the risk of infection.

Analysis and problem-solving in the public or private sectors

Economists work in both the public and private sectors. In the private sector this could include banks, insurance companies, consultancies and businesses. In the public sector, economists are needed at central banks, ministries of finance and think tanks as well as in local government. Non-governmental organisations and charities also employ economists.
