On 16 February, just over 100 high school students participated in a digital open house, which was the Faculty of Science and Technology's digital version of University Day.

When University Day was cancelled due to the pandemic, the Faculty of Science and Technology chose to conduct its own digital event. With the help of Zoom, students were invited to listen to student conversations, ask questions to study counsellors and students, see campuses via live tours and get an introduction to student life.

“We think it’s incredibly important to offer prospective students an opportunity to visit campus, even if it had to be done digitally this year," said coordinator Maja Garde Lindholm.

Project manager Lovisa Svensson agreed.

“The event provided an opportunity for students who had already chosen Uppsala University to get to know their future university a little bit more, and an opportunity for those who are still hesitant to be inspired and get answers to their questions.”

The event was conducted with the help of UTN's chair, students and study counsellors who represented the faculty's subject areas.
