Higher education can open with restrictions from 15 June

This evening, the government announced that higher professional education, just like secondary vocational education, will be allowed to open their doors for educational activities from 15 June on, to a limited extent. This applies in particular to practical parts of degree programmes. Further preconditions have also been formulated for this limited opening, considering reduced mobility during ‘rush hours’.

At the AUAS, we are pleased with this development. We will decide as soon as possible how to make use of it, considering the public transportation restrictions. Because we want to limit any potential study delays as much as possible, we will prioritise those activities that enable students to complete the final phase of their studies ahead of graduation. Activities that ensure that students can start the new academic year with 'a clean slate' in September, as much as possible, will also be prioritised.
