Universities may open campuses2020-05-29
The Public Health Agency and the Government announced on May 29 that Swedish universities will be able to open their campuses from June 15, 2020. This means that summer courses and the autumn term can be conducted on campus as far as possible, based on the recommendations of the Public Health Agency.
Johan Sterte, vice chancellor of Karlstad University, followed the government's press conference and is pleased with the news.
- It feels great that we can open again for education and examination on campus during the summer, but, of course, within the limits set by the Public Health Authority. It is of utmost importance for those who will start or continue their studies next term, says Vice-Chancellor Johan Sterte. I am happy to welcome all students, current and new, welcome back this summer and autumn!
This means that the university can return to more of its regular activities but that parts of the teaching may still need to be done remotely. More information about the return to teaching on campus and what it means for Karlstad University is published regularly on our website.
