Spring 2022 semester online

All teaching activities for the entire 2022 spring semester at SDC will be conducted online.

China’s national borders are still closed for most foreigners and it is difficult to obtain visas. At the moment, there is no official information about when China will reopen its borders. Teachers and students deserve the best possible opportunity to prepare for the coming semester, and due to the current entry requirements in China, it is not possible to plan and coordinate the spring semester with in-person teaching by Danish professors in the SDC building in Huairou.
If you have planned teaching during the spring semester, you have to prepare for teaching online.

If you have questions, please contact the Danish SDC office at
