Corona update 25 March 2020
If the measures set up by the government change in the meantime, we will keep you updated. In that case universities and universities of applied sciences will look further into teaching and testing methods in accordance with the guidelines.
For now, there is some new information available on the BSA and tests.
On Monday 24 March, the government has decided that events and meetings are prohibited until 1 June. That is why we decided to continue with online education until 1 June.
If anything changes, we will inform you.
As stated in the previous update, the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science (OCW) asked the universities of applied sciences to postpone the issuing of negative binding study advice (BSA) to the second academic year. HU University of Applied Sciences Utrecht has answered this call. This means that the BSA has been postponed to the second year of study. Students have received an email with further information about the implications.
A large number of questions are about the tests that are planned in the period from 6 to 10 April. Study programmes can decide not to continue with tests during this period. These will then be made at a later time or in another form. As you know, we are working hard to make remote testing possible. The study programmes will inform the students about these tests.
The same applies to tests set for the coming period D. Programmes decide for themselves when and in what form they will take the tests.
Keep using the hashtag #wijzijnhu on social media to let us and fellow students and colleagues know what you are up to and how you study and work from home. This way we can all still connect with each other and can get through this difficult time together as the HU Community.
