In this section you can read the latest specific updates for all locations of Aeres Hogeschool (Almere, Dronten en Wageningen). Below these updates you will find the latest general updates and general information that apply throughout Aeres.
14 January 2021
The lockdown situation has unfortunately been extended until February 9. All staff and students are yearning for the time when we can meet 'live' again. Because concerns about the spread of the virus are as high as ever, the university board has decided to extend the current teaching and work situation until spring break which begins on February 22. If, on Tuesday February 9, it appears that more than is currently possible in terms of activities on location, we will make use of this as much as possible. Of course, this will depend on the specific location situation and the freedoms allowed at that time.

Yesterday Prime Minister Rutte announced a lockdown until 19 January. We realize that for many of us this is may be a difficult situation. We all hope for a spring in which more real contact will be possible. For Aeres University of Applied Sciences the lockdown until the 19th of January has the following consequences:
From Wednesday December 16 until the start of semester 2 on February 1, all classes take place online, with the exception of the practical classes.
Exams and assessments
In principle, exams and assessments may take place on location. In a number of cases, they have already been planned online, which of course remains the case.
Internships and workplace learning
For internships and workplace learning the rules of the industry or location where the student is doing an internship apply. We realize that students may be concerned about the effect this may have on their study progress. We keep an eye on this. For specific questions, students can contact their study career counselor/mentor.
No trips abroad are possible until mid-March. In practice, this means that internships abroad will unfortunately no longer be possible this academic year.
Working on location
The work at the locations was already limited and takes place in consultation with the organization. For now, until the 19th of January, it is only allowed to work at school if it is strictly necessary. In all other cases employees work from home.
In any case until 19 January, all recruitment activities regarding new students will only take place online. This also applies to student-for-a-day programmes and guided tours of the locations.
If you are on location, the familiar rules continue to apply: only without complaints are you welcome, always keep a distance of 1.5 meters, wash your hands, disinfect regularly and wear a mouth mask when you move around.
For now we wish everyone a Merry Christmas, pay a little attention to each other and above all, stay healthy.

Use of mouth mask mandatory from December 1
We would like to draw everyone's attention to the fact that the use of a mouth mask in public areas is mandatory throughout the Netherlands from December 1st. So also at the locations of Aeres University of Applied Sciences. Mudguards, bandanas or shawls do not legally fall under the definition of a mouth mask.
The rule remains the same: Wear a mouth mask when walking around at the locations of Aeres Hogeschool. This also applies if you can't keep a 1.5 meter distance somewhere. Once you are in a classroom or at your workplace, you can take off the mask. We assume that you take care of your own mouth mask.
Binding Study Advice postponed
This week the staff of Aeres University of Applied Sciences and all first year students will be informed about the recent information about the Binding Study Advice (BSA). There will be noises about abolishing it. That is not an issue right now.
However, the BSA has been postponed for the first year students who started in this academic year 2020-2021. The information about this has been provided by mail to the students to whom it relates.
