Education in the 1st semester of 2020-2021

The 2020-2021 academic year will start as scheduled in September. If we are once again allowed to offer education to physically take place at the Roeterseiland Campus, we will do this. We will use a step-by-step approach to decide which components we will be able to offer physically on campus, in compliance with government regulations. We expect that at first, these will mainly be small-scale activities organised to promote contact between students and between lecturers and students.

We will provide you as a student – wherever you may reside – with the certainty that you will be able to commence or continue with your study. Therefore, we will in any case offer education and exams online in the 1st semester. In each period, we will evaluate whether the circumstances, in line with the social distancing rules of a 1.5 metre society, allow for meetings of small groups for small-scale lectures at the Roeterseiland Campus. There will be no mandatory attendance for these lectures.
