Today, the University crisis management team has taken the decision to offer only distance education courses and programmes.
Intensive preparations for the switch to distance education have begun. The University management realizes that this transition is a great challenge and urges everyone to be patient. We ask for your understanding, as it might take some time before the transition is fully completed.
Useful pages have been published
To support the teaching staff, course coordinators and students, webpages with useful information have been published on the intranet; they contain technical information as well as practical advice regarding effective distance education.
As a result of today’s decisions, the following applies to all members of staff and students at the University of Gävle.
- As of Wednesday 18 March, only distance education courses and programmes will be offered.
- We strongly advice everyone with symptoms of infection to stay at home.
- No travelling on behalf of the University abroad and no international student exchanges are allowed.
- Members of staff and students are urged to stay updated via the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Public Health Agency of Sweden and to follow all of their recommendations.
The University campus stays open as a workplace, but, as before, it is essential that everyone acts responsibly. Stays at home if you feel unwell and remember hand hygiene.
