Information for students regarding the coronavirus

Stay close while keeping distance!

This year the global pandemic has brought with it a number of challenges for our students and staff members and we know things will not be quite the same this autumn or next spring. We will continue to follow the guidelines issued by the Public Health Agency of Sweden and do everything we can to keep our students and staff members safe.  

For our new campus students, teaching may be a little different. More space between students in the lecture halls, or online solutions at times. We have been “practising” several of these things during this year - with very good results. After all, we are a university that offers a broad range of distance education programmes and courses.

News regarding the corona virus/covid-19

Open halls and closed doors – this applies on campus

Step by step, life has begun to return to the “normal”. For those who study with us, this means that lectures and other activities once again start taking place physically on campus. But not fully, not yet yet.


COVID-19 vaccination

The spread of the coronavirus with variants is at risk of relaunching now that we gather again to a greater extent than in the summer. The Public Health Agency therefore calls on everyone who can be vaccinated. Find out below how to book.


Gradual return to campus

The Public Health Agency’s general advice on distance education for adults will be discontinued on 1 June. However, a return should take place incrementally, so Mid Sweden University has decided to stick to its original plan of alternate attendance on campus during the autumn.


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.


Notification on campus studies at the end of June

At the end of June, and in good time before the admission notice is sent out, the schedule for campus teaching this autumn will be presented. The plan is that studies on campus and distance will alternate.


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.


This applies to the on campus exam

Now when a new period with exams begins there is a lot to think about due to the current corona pandemic. Since some exams need to be done on campus we would like to remind you of the rules of conduct that apply to the ”IRL”- exam.
