Start of the Academic Year 2020/2021
HAMK is preparing to return to campuses gradually during autumn.
HAMK is planning to start the autumn semester as follows:
- Beginning student groups will be present at campuses. Teachers will take care of safety in contact teaching.
- Beginning international groups will start online, apart from hybrid models.
- Continuing student groups will study the first module online and return to campuses in the beginning of the second module, 26 October.
- Lab exercises and other situations requiring contact teaching can be arranged for continuing students also during the first module, taking into account social distancing and good hygiene.
The presence of teachers and other staff members on campuses will be scheduled in order to prevent wide transmission of the coronavirus and to secure our activities. Staff can for instance be split into two groups that take weekly turns working on campus and online.
This plan is based on the current situation and expectations. Should the coronavirus situation change and/or authorities give new guidelines, these instructions will be changed accordingly.
