Regarding the novel coronavirus: The University of Borås has extended yellow level until 8 November. Yellow level means that university operations are to continue but that physical contact should be minimised as much as possible. The university has moved over to online instruction as far as possible. Stay updated.
Here you find information about the research conducted by the university’s 31 professors, 172 senior lecturers, 171 lecturers, and 67 doctoral students (April 2020).
