Studying in the backdrop of corona
What will my studies be like during the coronavirus crisis? We are aware of the fact that you and your parents might have a lot of questions about this topic. Kindly find below the most frequently asked questions:
Will you provide education on campus or only online? As long as the measures are in place we will facilitate education in a different manner. We take into account that we can offer around 80 percent of online education and 20 percent of on campus education.
It is very likely that most classes will be taught online. This of course depends on the developments around the coronavirus and the imposed measures of the government. With regard to on campus education, certain student groups are prioritized and you as first year student belong to this group.
What kind of tools are required for online education? Arrange a solid wifi signal for your laptop and a comfortable study place at your home for you to study. We are using different kind of software programmes. In case your laptop needs to meet special requirements you will find the required information in the MyStart-app. Do you log in with your Inholland-account and connect onto the wifi-network of the university? Then you can make full use of the assignments.
Will you organise orientation events when I arrive in the Netherlands? We deem it important to offer you a warm welcome. Therefore you will definitely be provided with an orientation programme but in a different format. Please go to the “Introduction” page for more information.
How do you provide study guidance? Your lecturers will do their utmost best to guide you into your new study programme. As a first year student a study coach will be assigned to you who will answer all of your questions.
In case I have to go to the university, for example for laboratory courses, exams or just study, will it be a safe environment? We encourage you to study from home as much as possible. In our buildings on campus we adhere to the 1.5 meter measure. Furthermore, the following general measures apply:
- Do not shake hands
- Wash your hands regularly
- Cough and sneeze in the inside of your elbow.
- Use paper tissues and throw them away after usage. Wash your hands afterwards.
- Do you experience fever, respiratory complaints or having a cold? Please stay at home and call in sick through your study coach.
