Corona updates for prospective students

Are you planning to apply to Chalmers for the autumn semester 2021? The application process remains unaffected by the Corona outbreak. This is how Chalmers has been handling the situation so far.

The application round for the academic year 2021/22 commencing in the autumn semester 2021 is open 16 October 2020 - 15 January 2021. The process will proceed according to plan and remains unaffected by the Corona outbreak. Here you can find more information about how to apply to Chalmers.​

The teaching at Chalmers is currently carried out with a mixture of campus-based and remote education with some parts on campus and some parts online, in order to adapt to the current situation where social distancing has to be considered. 

International students who couldn’t travel to Gothenburg in time for the start of the autumn semester 2020 were still able to take part in the teaching, including the campus-based parts, digitally. Students that arrived later during the semester, enabled by eventually changed travel restriction, could join the campus-based parts of the courses immediately when they arrived. Examinations during the autumn semester have been done remotely, with video monitoring.

Please note that there will be no reduction of the tuition fees because of the pandemic, but fee-paying International students who due to current circumstances have wished to resign their place of study were able to receive a refund for the autumn semester 2020. 

During the spring semester 2021, Chalmers will continue to conduct education in a mixed format, with some parts carried out on campus, and some parts remotely. Chalmers’ ambition is to increase the amount of campus-based education as much as possible in the spring semester while following the authorities' recommendations and risk assessments.
