FAQ about distance education and examination

FAQ about the corona virus

Information below is updated on December 18

Distance education also during the spring semester 2021

Distance education if possible, campus education if needed. This will be the University's overall strategy also throughout the spring semester 2021. The Vice-Chancellor's decision about distance education during the next semester will continue to apply even if the Covid-19-the situation would improve in the spring. The University introduced the approach after the situation with Covid-19 had worsened and that the Public Health Agency of Sweden had issued stricter general guidelines for Västra Götaland. As of 14 December, stricter national regulations and general advice come into force about everyone's responsibility to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

Please, notify us if you have Covid-19

Good to know before the examination week and when you are on campus

Look at your schedule

As a student at the University of Skövde, it is important to often look at your schedule in TimeEdit and Canvas to see if there are any changes. The schedule shows if you have teaching/exams on site on campus or if teaching/exams take place with digital support at a distance. The amount of distance teaching will differ between different schools, but also between different programmes and courses.

There are also education and examination elements that cannot be performed remotely, even if we want to. This may be due to that the education requires certain equipment that is on campus or that the legal certainty of an exam cannot be kept at a distance.

Opening hours on Campus 

The facilities on Campus have open: Monday-Thursday 7 am-5 pm, with access card from 5 pm to midnight. Friday 7 am-5 pm, with access card 5 pm-9 pm. Saturday, only with access card 7:30 am-6 pm and Sundays with access card 7:30 am to midnight.

Temporarily opening hours at the Library 

The University Library's opening hours are changed to Mon-Fri 10am-5pm. At the same time, the chat's opening hours are extended to Mon-Fri 8am-2pm. 

Remember to keep your distance

We also want to remind you to keep your distance from others both indoors and outdoors. When studying together please, sit at a distance and it is wise to study with the same group of students. Also, remember to wash your hands often or use hand sanitiser. Avoid public transport if possible and other places where there are a risk of congestion. Stay home if you feel a little sick, or go home if you start to feel unwell with cold symptoms. On the Student Portal, we will continuously update if the situation changes.

The University's crisis group

The University's crisis group has reconciliations about the situation. The group also has contact with the municipality of Skövde, other universities and with medical officer at the hospital in Skövde. The crisis group continuously updates the information on Staff Portal and the Student Portal.
