Starting on Saturday, 23 January, there will be a curfew in the Netherlands from 21:00 to 04:30. This is one of the measures the government has taken to curb the spread of the coronavirus

There are few changes for the AUAS.

In principle we will all study and work from home. There are still exceptions for practical education, testing and for a specific group of students and employees. Tests scheduled in the evenings are exempted from the curfew. This curfew exception does not apply to practical education or to the usage of study or work spots. At the moment, these measures apply through 9 February.

Practical education will finish at 20:00 at the latest so that everyone can make it home before 21:00.

Anyone who has a long commute home should consult with their lecturer and/or colleagues concerning leaving earlier. Students who need to be on campus in the evenings for tests will receive a curfew exemption letter from their programme permitting them to travel after the curfew. Employees will receive this from their supervisor. Travel to and from abroad has been further restricted by the government. Please see the government.nl website for more information on travel.

It’s expected that an update will follow in early February concerning the period after 9 February.
