Information regarding COVID-19

Berghs is now able to open our campus completely for different types of studies. We’re continuing to monitor the development of, and the authorities’ recommendations around how to limit the spread of COVID-19.


Winter 2021 at Berghs

Since October we’ve been able to welcome full-time students, course participants, and co-workers at our new address Bobergsgatan 48 in Norra Djurgårdsstaden. Our full-time programs and courses for professionals are currently running on-site, starting in 2022 our evening courses will start running on-site again, while our online courses will continue to run online as normal. If new recommendations are released, we will adapt our approach accordingly. You can find formats for each course on all course pages. 

We have started having larger gatherings at Berghs such as final student presentations, and inspiration seminars. Starting on December 1st, 2021, Sweden is introducing vaccination passports for indoor events for more than 100 people. This will not impact our teaching, but gatherings for the general public such as Berghs Morning Routine will require proof of vaccination. We will always clarify in event information for the general public if proof of vaccination is required. 

Our ambition at Berghs is to continue offering a variety of formats for instruction with online and outdoor learning as important components. Online lessons and gatherings will be organised via our LMS Canvas and video tool Zoom. Through these digital tools, we’re able to share text and video materials, host live lectures, work in shared documents, have conversations, and complete group projects in smaller groups - all following our pedagogical approach. 

We have adapted our facilities and routines during the pandemic, including the following: 

  • Moved to a new building with large open spaces
  • Adjusted lesson times to reduce the number of lessons starting at the same time 
  • Adjusted times for breaks and lunch to reduce crowding
  • Continued to give some lessons and courses online 
  • Expanded routines for cleaning, hygiene and service in our café  
  • Provided clear communication about health and hygiene  
  • Introduced a “no touch” policy when we greet one another 

Berghs’ management is continuously monitoring the development of the ongoing situation. If new restrictions are put in place, we are able to quickly pivot to offer a majority of, or entire programs, online. Alternatively, we can also pivot to offer in-person learning in varying degrees. 

As an education provider, Berghs has both a significant responsibility to offer education in a safe way, but also a high degree of flexibility to implement temporary changes and adjustments to meet the current situation while continuing to offer education.
