COVID-19 — concider this

We are looking forward to a new semester where we can finally hang out again. We no longer have any restrictions, but we still need to remember that the spread of COVID-19 is still ongoing.


Back to campus

From February 9, the restrictions in Sweden will be lifted and we can finally start to return to normal. Campus teaching will increase gradually at Mid Sweden University until the end of March.

Corona - the situation right now

We welcome all students to a new semester at Mid Sweden University! Here is an update on how we as a university work to reduce the spread of infection and advice for you as a student.


Clarification related to the pandemic

The changing COVID situation creates many new reflections and questions. Here you find a clarification of what applies to us at Mid Sweden University.


No new restrictions on the university’s activities

The spread of COVID-19 has recently increased across Europe and to some extent also in Sweden. However, mid Sweden University is not affected at present, therefore campus education and other activities continue according to previous Vice-Chancellor’s decisions.


New restrictions from the Public Health Agency

The Public Health Authority has decided on certain recommendations to prevent a re-infection of COVID-19. This means, among other things, that you need to test yourself if you experience symptoms, even if you are vaccinated.


Return to campus during reading period 2

On the last August, a principal decision was made on possible return to campus education during study period 2, if the pandemic situation allowed. The easing of the restrictions introduced in the autumn made it possible to implement the decision.


New recommendations for campus education issued by the Public Health Agency

At a press conference on Friday morning, Matilda Ernkrans, Minister for Higher Education and Research, commented that the Public Health Agency of Sweden will change its national advice on adult education. The coordination group will discuss how this affects Mid Sweden University next Monday.


Regional recommendations on campus Sundsvall

The regional government in Västernorrland, Region Västernorrland, has issued new recommendations due to the increased risk of spread of virus. The new recommendations mean that students and employees are recommended to wear a mask when visiting crowded areas on campus Sundsvall.


Corona-adapted education on campus this fall

This fall the education on campus is planned to resume - but a corona-adapted one. It was decided at the vice-chancellor’s decision meeting today. So far, the decision only applies to the first semester of the fall term.


No extra ”corona exam”

During the month of January, Mid Sweden University offered an extra opportunity for the written exam due to the pandemic. This offer has now expired.
