Approximately thirty percent of the education takes place at location in block 1, the rest will be online. Because of the developments surrounding the coronavirus, a number of things in the practicals and exams will occur differently than you may be used to. For example, we have made adjustments to our buildings. Read what you can expect in the buildings and what we expect from you.
Course schedulers are already working hard to schedule the courses prioritised by faculties on location. For the sake of clarity: we will not schedule education on weekends. At most a few large exams in the Jaarbeurs on Saturdays if this proves necessary. Keep an eye on the webpage of your programme to see which courses are going to be taught online and which on location. Please note! Don't wait with registering for courses untill this is published. The registation period (2 - 28) June has not changed.
We will determine the priorities for the distribution of the scarce space in consultation with the faculties and study programmes. We have set a few guidelines:
- Priority is given to education that is location-based (cannot be provided online), community building and testing.
- All instructional education (such as many lectures) takes place online by definition in all programmes. In this way, lecture halls can be used for other educational activities.
- Where possible and necessary, courses free up space for compulsory courses by temporarily not offering elective courses and (faculty) honours courses.
- First-year students are given priority in community building.
- Faculties prioritise themselves, within the university frameworks, which educational (-related) activities they wish to schedule.
- The times of teaching are staggered because of the accessibility of the buildings and the need to avoid peak traffic during rush hours in particular. However, we will stick to the UU-timeslot model. For example, we are not going to teach on Saturdays, at most, going to enable large tests.
