Summary of the measures by HAMK regarding coronavirus, March 31, 2020

Beginning from March 12, all teaching at HAMK has been operated in distance teaching. The campus doors have been closed as of March 18, and students key cards do not function. Contact teaching is expected to continue in autumn.

All celebrations, seminars and other public events taking place at HAMK will be cancelled until the end of June. The entrance examinations of this spring’s first joint application which were due to be held in Finland in April, are cancelled. Students will be selected based on school performance and selection assignments instead. Additional information.

All planned international trips which are a part of studies are cancelled until further notice. All international business trips of HAMK staff members are cancelled until further notice. All staff and students arriving from other countries will automatically self-isolate to work or study from home for 14 days. Visitors from abroad and incoming students (studies and work placement) cannot come to HAMK until further notice.

HAMK has aborted all international study and trainee mobility placements concerning HAMK students who are abroad. All HAMK students currently studying or training abroad have been summoned home. If the student decides to stay in the exchange country, they need to inform HAMK of this in writing. The placement will then turn into holiday and the international study or trainee grant will not be payed from the abortion day on.

HAMK is not closed from operation. We will keep working and do our best so that studies will be continued as smoothly as possible despite the exceptional situation.

More detailed information and discussion for HAMK staff and students can be found in Yammer group Koronavirus / Coronavirus COVID-19 info.
