What does it mean for students that the University is returning to normal operations?

2022-02-15 

Now, when the restrictions have been lifted, the University is returning to on-campus teaching in campus-based programmes and courses. When the University have fully returned to on-campus teaching, you will be expected to be on campus when you have scheduled classes such as labs, methodology exercises or lectures.

On-campus teaching

If you chose a campus-based course or study programme, it may be the case that you have barely been on campus because of the pandemic, even if you have been a student at the University for a long time.

Now, when the restrictions have been lifted, the University is returning to on-campus teaching in campus-based programmes and courses. When the University have fully returned to on-campus teaching, you will be expected to be on campus when you have scheduled classes such as labs, methodology exercises or lectures.

Some adaptions to the teaching activities may still occur due to previous planning. However, if you are an on-campus student, you must stay updated regarding schedules and learn how to find your way around campus. For distance students, there will be no major differences of course.

When we have returned to on-campus teaching, hybrid solutions will not be offered, that is teaching that combines on-campus and distance teaching at the same time. Neither will we record teaching activities or adapt teaching in on-campus programmes and courses. Here, teachers will be on campus and focus on the students in the room.

Your schedule with dates, times and rooms

The campus area

If you want to study on campus with your fellow students in a group study room, you will find most of them in the Library and you can book them yourself.
