Student voices in distance mode: It’s more difficult at home
(NB! This news report will not be updated. Support and guidance for students and co-workers are continuously updated at insidan.liu.se/corona)
The 30,000 students at LiU are studying remotely at the moment, as a consequence of the ongoing pandemic. Thanks to the way in which all students have found solutions and acted responsibly, it has been possible to keep the university campuses open, although some limitations are in force. This is extremely valuable for students who cannot study at home.
We asked some students how they are managing in the current very special situation. Lisa’s advice to other students is as follows:
- “Well, I suppose it’s to get out of bed on time and try to study at home. Mainly to try to establish routines so that you still put in the study hours you’re supposed to, even if it is much more difficult when you’re at home than when you have to go to lectures.”
So – keep up the good work. Stay at home if you can and keep your distance if you absolutely must be on campus. Your actions as an individual are important, and we will get through this if everyone does their bit.
