A combination of on-campus and digital activities for the spring semester 2021

  • The Swedish Public Health Agency expects that the risk of spread of infection will remain for a longer period of time, and the University must find a long-term solution. The main focus for Malmö University for the spring semester of 2021 will continue to be digital education.  
  • Exemptions can be made for teaching and examinations that require physical attendance, if deemed necessary to ensure quality and/or progression in the education. However, measures are being taken to reduce the campus-based education and examination until March 28.
  • A number of precautionary measures have been taken to ensure that any campus-based activities can be carried out to comply with directives from authorities.

Accessing university buildings

The University has limited opening hours and the number of study places on university premises is limited. As a student, you can access several of the university's buildings with your Multicard and code. 

Decisions regarding matters other than digital education

  • International conferences at Malmö University are conducted out digitally. 
  • National conferences/equivalent at Malmö University are conducted digitally.
