Information related to Covid-19

Chalmers follows the authorities recommendations and risk assessments. At the current moment, we cannot predict the level of spread of the coronavirus, or for how long the national and regional restrictions will remain in place. As soon as the national and regional restrictions are lifted, our goal is to gradually return to more on-campus teaching.

The following applies to all education at Chalmers for Autumn 2021:
  • Teaching at Chalmers will be carried out in a hybrid format with the distribution between digital and campus-based teaching depending on prevailing restrictions and recommendations.
  • All students, including international master’s students, must be prepared to participate in on-campus studies throughout the semester.
  • This means that it will not be possible to start distance learning during the autumn semester 2021.

Keep in touch


Looking forward to welcoming you here in August! 😊
