University Follows Regional Authorities’ Decisions in the Restriction on the Number of People and Remote Work Policy
The University's instructions on safety measures are observed closely and masks are used in the University’s facilities. The decisions of the regional authorities are followed in the restriction on the maximum number of people and remote work policy. The coronavirus management team decided earlier that the University gradually returns to more extensive contact teaching starting from Monday, 31 January 2022. Contact teaching will be increased in so far as possible, for example, small group teaching and thesis guidance can be organised on campus. The goal is to return to normal contact teaching arrangements by the end of the third period in March. The faculties and responsible teachers for the courses will give more detailed information on teaching arrangements in accordance with the faculty's practices.
