Important information from the Biology Education Centre about Covid-19

Uppsala University has a webpage with important information about the new coronavirus

The disciplinary domain of science and technology also has a page with information for students.

It is also important that you regularly check the student portal for information about your course. You can find information from the department there. 

The Biology Education Center will continue to provide student services as ususal, but we also try to minimize the number of physical meetings. That is why many of us are working from home. We recommend that you contact us using our functional e-mail adresses for this reason. 

A letter from the Biology Education Centre to students:

Dear students,

The vice chancellor has today decided that all teaching and examination at Uppsala University will switch to distance learning starting Wednesday March 18. This also include exams, that will be carried out as individual home exams instead. Students who have examination scheduled for tomorrow will have their exams on Monday March 23, and will get separate messages about this. Other exams this week will be given on the time planned, but as individual home exams. Information about the examinations will be sent to you via your course leaders or out examination administrators when they have had time to plan according to the new situation.

Teaching in period 4 will be by distance, and will for most courses start on Tuesday March 24, to enable for as many as possible to take part during the course introduction.

The courses that fall under the definition of “individual courses” are still running and can in many cases be executed as before the pandemic. Please contact our coordinators directly if you have questions or concerns about these courses. Training may be affected depending on the type of training (work in the lab or digially) and on the place of the training (university or at a company). 

Biology Education Centre has just had a large meeting with the teachers for exchange of ideas and discussions about switching to distance learning.

Please remember to follow the general guidelines for decreasing risk of Covid-19 virus, and follow the news for students in the UU website: New information on traveling etc might apply.

Please contact us for any questions you might have, in most cases the

Kind regards,
Biology Education Centre through Elisabeth
