23 March 2021
On March 23, it was announced in the press conference that higher education is not allowed to open for on-site education at this time. The numbers do not allow it unfortunately. So nothing will change now in education and current schedules.
This may be the case from the week of April 26, the week before the May vacation. Only if the number of infections decreases sufficiently in the meantime. Probably start the lessons on location after the May vacation, with some exceptions. We then assume an average of 1 day per week physical on location and the practical classes continue as now. On April 13 the next press conference will be held and hopefully more will be clear. We also expect more clarity on the possibility of self-testing and how it will be used. Keep an eye on the announcements in the week of April 14. Each faculty will then communicate the exact details per location.
For now, hang in there, there will come a time when students and faculty can start meeting at school again!
10 March 2021
On March 8, the press conference indicated that some easing may be possible again for higher education, starting in late March/early April. This means that we will then again be able to offer school-based education to students to a limited extent. The first step! We are now working on a plan for each faculty in which education at our schools is possible to the maximum extent possible and evenly distributed among the year groups. Students and staff will be notified by email as soon as possible after the press conference on March 23 as soon as there is more news about the exact interpretation and possibilities per location.
24 February 2021
The press conference held on February 23 made clear that no flexibilities are yet possible for higher education. This applies at least until March 15. The next press conference will follow on March 8. With that, our current policy within Aeres University of Applied Sciences with regard to education, examining and working from home unless there is no other option, remains unchanged. We hope for better times!
3 February 2021
The press conference held on February 2 made it clear that, unfortunately, no flexibilities are yet possible for higher education. With that, the current information in the previous updates remain in place. Of course, we will keep a close eye on the developments. And as soon as an easing is possible for opening up, priority will be given to our education activities.
