COVID-19 Planning

DIS - COVID-19 Planning

We look forward to welcoming students to Scandinavia for a pandemic-resilient Summer 2021 and Fall Semester 2021, and beyond.

We are optimistic that the pandemic conditions in Denmark and Sweden will allow society to continue opening up in the months ahead, especially in light of the ambitious vaccination plans in both countries.

A Robust and Successful Plan

Throughout the pandemic with adjusted programming, DIS has successfully hosted several student cohorts in Stockholm and Copenhagen, giving us confidence that we are well prepared. DIS staff and faculty are skilled and enthusiastic, our systems and infrastructure are robust, and our protocols and platforms are tested.

The DIS Mitigation Team

The DIS Mitigation Team is composed of staff and leadership from across our organization, carefully monitoring the pandemic in Denmark, Sweden, and the U.S., and adjusting DIS approaches accordingly. We will update the resources in this section frequently and share relevant updates with students and their universities.
