Corona measures: face mask requirement dropped


The new relaxation of measures that take effect from 26th of June onwards allows us to drop the face mask requirement. This means you won’t need to wear a face mask in our buildings anymore from that day onwards. And of course, you are welcome to use the available individual study spots on campus. Make sure you keep the 1.5 meter distance.

Are you heading to the university? Although it is not mandatory, we’d appreciate it if you carry out a self-test prior to your visit to the university.

Basic scenario from September: letting go of the 1.5 meter distance
As mentioned in our previous update we will adhere to the scenario strategies imposed by the Ministry of Education, just like other universities (of applied sciences) do in the Netherlands. We illustrate this via the so-called basic scenario: meaning that you’ll be able to attend educational activities on campus every day and that you do not need to keep the 1.5 meter distance anymore. In addition, during an educational activity a number of 75 people is allowed to participate.

Education online and on campus
Last year taught us the possibilities of online education. Not all classes need to necessarily take place on campus. We’d like to provide best of both worlds in September: which classes are provided on campus and which ones can stay online. It is of paramount importance to us that we continue to meet each other and that we can provide you with decent education.

Fall back scenario
We are reasoning from the positive but in case of potential new local cases of the corona virus or in case of increased transmission figures we revert to a ‘fall back scenario’. This would mean we are going back to full or partially online education.

The positive developments are rapidly increasing. We of course keep you informed regarding changes of your studies.
