Starting new academic year at HAMK
Academic year starts gradually at Häme University of Applied Sciences (HAMK). HAMK is taking actions to further slow down the possible second wave of coronavirus by avoiding overcrowding at our campuses and unnecessary travelling.
During the first module (24.8. –23.10.2020), only new students will start full-scale contact lessons on campus. Second, third and fourth year students will start their studies using the hybrid model. Contact lessons can start, for example, as lab exercises, module projects and different small groups. It is also possible to organise contact lectures if social distancing guidelines can be followed. Full-scale contact lessons will start at the beginning of the second module, starting 26.10.2020.
The remote work recommendation has ended for staff, but physical contact should be limited to be as small as possible. Travelling is not recommended and in case of having flu symptoms, one is not allowed to come to the campus. Read more here.
