Coronavirus guidelines until the end of the year

The academic year at HAMK continues as to date: first year students will continue with contact lessons and second, third- and fourth-year students continue with the hybrid model, mainly as distance lessons.

First year students will continue with contact lessons. The studies are primarily carried out by maintaining safety distance. This may mean e.g. dividing study groups into smaller groups, dividing groups to morning and afternoon, and moving lessons to more spacious study spaces. Masks are used in teaching situations where it is not possible to maintain a safety distance (e.g., laborations and simulations).

Other than first year students will continue with the hybrid model, i.e., a combination of distance and contact teaching, at least until the end of the second module, until the Christmas holidays. Teaching is mainly carried out remotely, except for where contact teaching can be carried out safely (e.g., outdoor teaching in the School of Bioeconomy). If necessary, small groups can be arranged with security arrangements in place.

Outside classrooms, while in public areas of the campuses, it is important to pay close attention to safety distances and good hand hygiene.

In the event of infection and exposure to Coronavirus, we follow the instructions given by healthcare officials.

Student wellbeing and occupational healthcare services are at our disposal. Student wellbeing professionals can be reached at opiskelijahyvinvointi@hamk.fi, and a chat service found from www.hamk.fi it is open on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 12 to 15 p.m.

If you have any flu symptoms, you cannot come to campus. No events will be organized at HAMK premises, and traveling should be avoided. When using public transportation, we recommend following the official Finnish institute for health and welfare’s (THL) use of masks.
