Covid-19 | 2020 autumn semester

Information to students at the School of Social Work

Teaching at the School of Social Work at first and second cycle level will take place both digitally and in our premises. In such activities, consideration is to be given to university-wide decisions and to the Swedish Public Health Agency’s rules, general guidelines and recommendations for a reduced spread of infection of Covid-19. Social distancing must be followed according to the Public Health Agency's regulations, general advice and recommendations.

The faculty’s measures for a safe study environment 

Students are to feel secure when studying at the Faculty of Social Sciences. The faculty has therefore implemented a number of measures to ensure that teaching at our premises will comply with the Swedish Public Health Agency’s recommendations: 

  • We have adapted the furniture arrangement at our premises in order to maintain social distancing.
  • Classrooms will be used for a longer period during the day in order to spread out teaching sessions.
  • Hand sanitiser will be available outside classrooms from 17 September.
  • Disinfection wipes will be available in all lecture rooms at the School of Social Work.

Reducing the spread of infection – everyone’s responsibility 

We must all take collective responsibility for maintaining a safe study environment. It is therefore very important that as a student you: 

  • maintain social distancing! (1.5 m)
  • stay at home if you have symptoms of a cold or illness
  • wash hands often and thoroughly or use hand sanitiser
  • leave the classroom and corridor after a lesson is over
  • respect the current delimitations of the premises
  • respect the arrangement of furniture in classrooms and do not move tablesand chairs
  • do not move furniture that has been cleared away

Take care of each other this autumn. Together, we can help each other!
