All students must pay attention to information given in Canvas.

​Classes and exams

Updated January 3: No on-site teaching until January 18
The Norwegian Government has announced that there will be online classes only at universities until January 18. Professional practice will be carried out as agreed. Students are asked to postpone their travel back to campus after the Christmas holidays. ​

The faculty reviews the possibilities for other forms of classes and examinations. Should a class or exam be changed in the form it is delivered/organized, the faculty will inform all students in question.

Students will receive further information from their faculty regarding the implementation of alternative learning activities. ​

Absence from classes

We receive many inquiries about absence from compulsory participation in classes due to quarantine and similar situations. The most important thing is that the students achieve the learning outcomes, something we cannot compromise with. The Dean of the faculty has decided to change the limit to 70% for all courses where the previous requirement of participation in classes was 80%. Students whom, due to corona problems, will not be able to meet the requirements for compulsory participation, can apply for individual teaching arrangements. The faculty decides in such cases, according to the rector's decision.

Travel

• We recommend our students to consider private travel carefully as it may have an impact on the implementation of praxis.

• Private travel that can lead to quarantine is done at your own risk. Quarantine can have consequences for your study progression.

• Students who are going on an exchange are given information on a regular basis and are also welcome to get in touch with the international coordinators at the faculty.

Infection

If you suspect that you have been infected with the coronavirus, you must comply with Norwegian Institute of Public Health's guidelines: https://www.fhi.no/en/

Quarantine and isolation

Students who are in quarantine or isolation, and where this may have consequences for their studies, must report this to the study leader as soon as possible. 

Several fields of study at the Faculty of Education and Arts  (FLU) have compulsory teaching and practice. Students considering private travel are encouraged to check updated travel advice and quarantine rules from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Government. Travel can lead to entry quarantine, which in turn can mean that the student is not allowed to participate in compulsory study activities. Failure to participate in compulsory activities can have consequences for the study process.
