For the spring semester, Stockholm University will continue to have digital learning. For the Department of Child and Youth Studies, this means that all teaching will be provided digitally, that is, a web-based online teaching during spring semester.

The institution follows the recommendations of the Public Health Agency of Sweden regarding physical distancing and limiting the amount of people that gather to a maximum of eight.

For specific information about what this means for your course, check your schedule on the course site. There you will find information about each course module. 

Reductions in teaching and exams on campus:

From 24 November 2020 the Swedish Government has decided to ban public gatherings and public events with more than eight participants, as part of the measures to stop the spread of covid-19.

The University President is of the view that the Government’s decision should also guide activities at Stockholm University and therefore that the introduction of restrictions regarding the number of  people who can participate in teaching or exams on campus is necessary.

  • No hall-based exams shall be conducted, though on-site exams may be carried out for smaller groups.
  • Teaching and exams on campus shall be limited to a maximum of eight students.
  • The Library Director has been assigned the task of continuously evaluating the current situation and, if necessary, implementing further measures to ensure a safe working environment for staff and students at Stockholm University Library.

Keep yourself updated

The Department of Child and Youth Studies is planning for the teaching in our premises to be performed in a safe and responsible manner. However, it is dependent on the fact that everybody takes responsibility, follows the existing guidelines, and keeps a safe distance to other people.
The department plans for the physical teaching to happen in smaller groups properly spread out in classrooms located in different parts of the building.
In relation to this, we ask you as a student to keep yourself updated about what is happening, through the university’s common website www.su.se/english/coronavirus and through the department’s own website www.buv.su.se

Important to remember is that the general recommendations of the Public Health Agency of Sweden apply, such as the limitation on public gatherings to eight people, to keep a distance to others, to stay home when sick, and to avoid congestion in public transport.
