New higher education measures from 1 September

Despite the many fine examples of inspirational distance education, it’s vital to good education that students can meet face-to-face with their peers and teachers.

The AUAS is therefore constantly looking for ways to maximise the available opportunities related to this and is pleased with the government’s announcement today about easing restrictions related to on-campus education.

The new guidelines offer more possibilities for in-person education and we are therefore looking into how we can work within these guidelines in the best possible way. In doing so, we will take into account the fact that we are already in the late stages of educational planning for next year. “We understand that the government’s positive message impacts everyone in the organisation. Students and staff naturally want to know where they stand at the start of the academic year”, says Huib de Jong, AUAS Executive Board Chairman. “We are therefore doing our utmost to inform everyone about this as soon as possible. This will happen both via the faculties and the degree programmes as well as via the MijnHvA/MyAUAS intranet and the newsletter”.
