 Campuses are still open, and it will be more on-campus teaching from February.

University of Agder - Campus Grimstad (top) and Campus Kristiansand

Update 19 January: Maximum 60 students per on-campus teaching session

Following changes in the government’s recommendations on 18 January, the strategic crisis management team at UiA has updated the university’s coronavirus regulations.

Teaching where equipment or other infrastructure on campus is necessary will be carried out as scheduled, even before February. The faculty directors will decide which courses this applies to. 

Maximum 60 students per on-campus teaching session

Following an overall assessment and discussions with the municipal medical officers in Grimstad and Kristiansand, UiA has decided that 60 is the maximum number of students allowed to gather for teaching activities. The decision is based on infection control considerations and the commitment to offer all  students on-campus teaching at least one day a week, as the government requested.

The amount of on-campus teaching will be increased from 1 February, and UiA is now planning how to organise this. All students will receive information about course changes through Canvas as soon as possible, and no later than 27 January.

No changes for university staff

Employees who can work from home, should continue to do so. The faculty directors and directors of administrative divisions coordinate this in each university unit. Staff are to contact their nearest leader to coordinate this.

Postponed exams 

Postponed exams in week 8 and 9 will proceed as planned.
