At the moment, we are in the final phase of education block 2 (until 7 February). Practicals and exams are on location. Lectures and seminars are online, unless a programme decides otherwise. In addition, small-scale meetings will be possible again from Monday. In order to guarantee safety as much as possible, we will take to heart the government's advice to wear disposable face masks, anywhere in our buildings. Also do a self-test twice a week.

Education in block 3 can take place on location. The maximum number of people per room is 75. In accordance with government guidelines, more people are allowed only during exams. Where possible, we maintain a distance of 1.5 metres. In the examination rooms, seats are placed one and a half metres from each other.
Some seminars and lectures will have to be organised online or hybrid due to the maximum of 75 people per room, or due to absence of teachers and students who have corona-related complaints or are in quarantine. In that case, you will be further informed by your own study programme or faculty.

Are you visiting the university? Then read the Buildings and hygiene measures first and don't forget your face mask.

Block 2

As we mentioned in previous updates, we will continue to complete education block 2 online, unless a programme sees an opportunity to provide a lecture or seminar on location. This is not an obligation and it will not be possible in various courses. For example, because there are hardly any lectures left, rescheduling is not possible due to the enormous workload of the schedulers, or because buildings are partly open or closed. Students will be informed by their lecturer if a lecture or seminar is still held on location. We hope for your understanding if this has not been arranged by the beginning of next week. Lecturers are asked to follow the announcements within their own faculty regarding the possibilities for teaching on location. For education given on location, the following applies: maximum 75 persons per room.

For practical education, the maximum number of people allowed in the room is 75.

Block 3

Education in block 3 can take place on location. The maximum number of people per room is 75. In accordance with government guidelines, more people are allowed only during exams. Where possible, we maintain a distance of 1.5 metres. In the examination rooms, seats are placed one and a half metres from each other.

Some seminars and lectures will have to be organised online or hybrid due to the maximum of 75 people per room, or due to absence of teachers and students who have corona-related complaints or are in quarantine. In that case, you will be further informed by your own study programme or faculty.

Exams in block 2 are held on location, as well as labs. There is no maximum group size for exams.

We ask you to do a self-test before you go to the university to take an exam. To avoid as much as possible queues, the rooms will open half an hour earlier. So please be on time,  and keep a 1.5-metre distance even if there is a queue. We appeal to everyone to be sensible about this. And should you be asked to keep your distance by a UU staff member or fellow student, please do so.

We understand that there are students who, despite the measures taken, are concerned about health risks. They should discuss with their study advisor if, due to their health, they are unable to attend a course (with compulsory attendance) on location. 

More information about risk groups on the RIVM website.

If you are ill or have corona-related symptoms, do not come to the university. Take your responsibility and get tested immediately. This can be a self-test if you have mild symptoms. You can simply request them free of charge online or collect them from the reception desks in our buildings. If you have a positive self-test, serious symptoms or a fever, have yourself tested at the Municipal Health Service (GGD). Is the result of the self-test or the test at the GGD negative? Then you can go to the university. See also the corona check on the website.

If you have to go into quarantine, please inform the lecturer and contact the lecturer/course coordinator if the course involves compulsory attendance. Contact your study advisor if you are unable to attend classes on location for a long period of time.

IIf you miss a test due to illness or quarantine, you will maintain the test opportunities. Teachers try to schedule resits as soon as possible.

Review the student website of your programme to find out what the procedure is.

If you miss a test due to illness or quarantine, you will maintain the test opportunities. Teachers try to schedule resits as soon as possible.

What can you do if you cannot be physically present at seminars or practicals for a longer period of time because of corona?

If you are able to attend seminars or practicals online: Discuss this with your study advisor and your teachers. You could ask a fellow student to switch on Microsoft Teams for you during the seminar / practical. And maybe you can participate in the seminar or practical of another group in another week.

If you cannot follow the course online: Please contact your teacher.
