From 26 April, we will finally be able to, as a university of applied sciences, return to our situation prior to the lockdown that we have been in since mid-December.
Back to school
On 20 April, it became clear that higher education would be able to open its doors again as of 26 April, with some restrictions. We will be returning to the situation as it was prior to the lockdown that began in mid-December. This means that students will be able to, on average, come to school each week for one full or half day in order to participate in lessons in person. It is an addition to the current exceptions regarding practical courses, examinations and meetings for vulnerable student groups.
