On 27 May, the Swedish government presented its five-step plan for adaptation and easing of the restrictions applied due to the Covid-19 pandemic. One of the new recommendations is for digital learning no longer to be the default mode for higher education.
This means that it will be possible to conduct education on site at universities and colleges as of 1 June. The reason why this is happening now is to provide better conditions for higher education institutions to plan for the autumn semester. The change is expected to be implemented in stages while taking account of the regional infection rate and number of people vaccinated.
The University management will now take a position on how the University is to gradually open up without jeopardising infection safety. The current vice-chancellor’s decision from 12 May applies in its entirety until further notice.
