Umeå University follows the Public Health Agency of Sweden’s recommendations, but has the ambition that teaching and assessment for the rest of the spring and summer semesters will be carried out to the greatest extent possible. This means that summer courses will also be affected and will be replaced with online teaching.
“For some courses, we may need to grant exceptions from this decision. This could be to carry out some practical sessions on campus if they cannot be replaced by other methods, as long as the number of participants can be limited and the risk of spreading disease avoided. Such exceptions or deviations from this decisions are decided by each dean and is reported to the Deputy University Director,” says Vice-Chancellor Hans Adolfsson.
This decision is valid from 8 June until 30 August 2020.
