Welcome to Södertörn University!

Welcome to Södertörn University!

Your studies are ahead of you – my hope is that you will enjoy them and benefit from them. As the vice-chancellor of Södertörn University, I believe that studying brings many opportunities and can provide you with new friends and new perspectives. As a student, you are also part of shaping your courses and your university. I feel that an important part of my job is to ensure that your enthusiasm and involvement is given space and utilised.

I look forward to meeting you and your coursemates in various contexts over the coming years. Our campus is at an exciting phase of its development, with a library that will support you in your studies and is a natural meeting place for many students.

We are planning for face to face teaching this autumn, but some digital elements will remain. And, of course, we will continue to follow the recommendations and regulations issued by the government and expert authorities due to the coronavirus pandemic. Your timetable will show you what apples to you.

If you have any questions about starting to study, you can find lots of information at sh.se/incomingstudents. There is also information about the activities being planned for the start of the semester and the support the university can offer you. News articles from the university are published at sh.se/studentenglish, including recommendations and FAQs due to the coronavirus pandemic.

To keep your place on your course or programme, it is important that you register in time. Information about this will be emailed to you and you can also read more at sh.se/incomingstudents.

Welcome to Södertörn University and good luck with your studies!
