Decision about continued web-based teaching during Autumn 2021

The Department Management has decided that all teaching and examination at the Department of Asian, Middle Eastern and Turkish Studies will continue to be web-based throughout autumn semester 2021 (August 30, 2021 - January 11, 2022).

Due to the indefinite situation with the pandemic and delays in the authorities' plan for vaccinations, The Head and Deputy Head of Department have made the following decisions regarding the teaching during autumn semester 2021 after consultations with the Faculty of Humanities and the department's management group:

  • All teaching and examination at the Department of Asian, Middle Eastern and Turkish Studies will continue to be web-based throughout autumn semester 2021 (August 30, 2021 - January 1, 2021).
  • The department will work on offering students the opportunity to conduct joint student-centered studies within the department's premises following the rules and regulations of Stockholm University and recommendations of the Public Health Agency of Sweden and other government directives.
  • We are also looking at what opportunities there may be for conducting non-compulsory activities on campus. How these activities will be planned will be communicated as soon as we get more information from Stockholm University and relevant authorities.
  • Students with disabilities or in need of special pedagogical support should primarily contact the Student department at Stockholm University. The department's contact person for students with disabilities in all subjects is Martin Säfström
  • The recommendations and regulations of the Public Health Agency of Sweden to minimize the spread of infection must be followed within the department's premises.
  • Any decision made by the university management, the faculty or by an authority may lead to the present decision having to be reconsidered.
  • The department's management is working to formulate a plan for returning to teaching on campus.
  • The student representatives have been informed and given the opportunity to submit comments.
