The pandemic has caused an uncertainty regarding how teaching and examination can be carried out in the near future, and we ask for your understanding in not being able to give you promises on how you will conduct your studies during your stay in Umeå. The university takes the health and safety of our students and staff seriously and we adapt our activities based upon the current spread of infection. This means that parts of your studies may take place online. Our priority is to ensure high quality education and provide access to campus to those activities that must be conducted in person.
