HDK-Valand opens workshops for a limited number of final-year students

News: Apr 16, 2020

HDK-Valand will open parts of the premises for a limited number of final year students so that they can complete unfinished projects and be examined in the spring term. Only a few students and technicians will be allowed on the premises at the same time and they must follow specially developed safety regulations.

The vice-chancellor of the University of Gothenburg has advised the faculties to prepare for distance studies for the rest of the spring semester. For students in the first and second year of the BA programs as well as the first year of the Master's programs, this means educational elements that cannot be completed remotely during the spring need to be moved to the autumn. For the final year students, however, the situation is different.

– Our goal is to be able to examine all final year students during the spring term, either remotely or in other ways. For this to be possible, some final-year students need access to technology and workshops at HDK-Valand in order to be able to complete unfinished work so that they can be examined. In some cases, they might also need access to spaces for installation of works, says Troels Degn Johansson, head of HDK-Valand.

The department will begin to permit a small number of final year students access to the workshops after Easter. Final year students who are unable to travel to HDK-Valand in the spring will be offered new opportunities in the summer or autumn.

– HDK-Valand remains committed to reducing the spread of the Coronavirus in society. Where students and staff will be in our buildings specific risk assessments and safety regulations have been developed, says Troels Degn Johansson.

Since the physical student exhibitions could not be carried out as planned this spring, the department is now looking at solutions for each individual student group. More information on this will be forthcoming.
