Education and exams
Are you visiting the university? Then read the information below and the buildings and hygiene measures.
Education will be held on campus. Degree programmes will decide for themselves whether courses can take place on location rather than online or hybrid. Education on campus may not always be possible technically due to the schedule. Teachers will inform their class on any adjustments. If the on-site education is planned, it is not required from teachers to provide online or hybrid education. For term 2, we will not schedule a maximum number of students in the lecture halls.
Take a self-test if you have symptoms and want to come to the university. You can pick up free self-tests at a reception/service point in a university building. Not sure if you should go into quarantine? Then do the quarantaine check on the government website. Stay at home if the check indicates that you should do so. This way you keep your fellow students and employees healthy and the university open.
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.
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.
Review the student website of your programme to find out what the procedure is.
There is no maximum group size for exams. The requirement to wear a face mask and maintain a distance of 1.5 metres no longer applies.
Ill or under quarantine
If you miss the first test (opportunity) because you are ill or under quarantine obligation (based on central government regulations), you will retain the test opportunity. It may differ per programme how this is exactly interpreted and which alternative options (such as an oral, essay or online proctoring) are offered. In special cases, the examination committee or the director of education may grant an extra examination opportunity, this differs per faculty. Please contact the examination board in such cases.
Exams can take place at external locations such as Olympos and the Jaarbeurs. The same rules apply for these location. A coronavirus entry pass is no longer needed.
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.
