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 and we have a library that will support you in your studies and is a natural meeting place for many students.

However, we are currently in unusual and troubling times. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, when the spring semester starts we will only be offering limited teaching on university premises. Our aim is that courses that have practical elements, such as on Police Education, will be held on campus and that new students can have some teaching at the university so you can meet your coursemates and your teachers. Much of the university’s teaching will be conducted remotely, at least in the first weeks of the autumn semester. Your timetable will tell you what applies to you. We do not yet know how things will be for the rest of the autumn, but we are following developments and working hard to provide high quality education while also reducing the spread of infection. We will inform you as soon as we have any new information.

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

Welcome to Södertörn University and good luck with your studies!
