Latest updates locations Aeres UAS

In this section you can read the latest specific updates for all locations of Aeres Hogeschool (Almere, Dronten en Wageningen). Below these updates you will find the latest general updates and general information that apply throughout Aeres.

14 April 2021

Last night's press conference, April 13, showed no real changes for education at our college from the March 24 message below.

Education on site

In short, if the infection rates allow, higher education will reopen as of April 26. For Aeres University of Applied Sciences, classes on location will start after the May vacation, with some exceptions. We assume an average of 1 day per week physical on site and the practical classes continue as now. There will be communication per faculty about the exact implementation per location.

Self tests

We continue to emphasize that everyone who comes to school has a personal responsibility. If you have complaints, you don't come and get tested first in a GGD testing line. You also do not come if you have been in contact with an infected person. Everywhere we keep 1, 5 meters distance, wear a mouth mask and wash our hands regularly.

There is no clarity yet on the use and distribution of self-testing. Test results are not checked at school. This much is already clear. In this Aeres University of Applied Sciences follows the line of higher education in the Netherlands, formulated by the Vereniging Hogescholen. Again the appeal: take responsibility in this matter, for yourself and for each other.

23 March 2021

On March 23, it was announced in the press conference that higher education is not allowed to open for on-site education at this time. The numbers do not allow it unfortunately. So nothing will change now in education and current schedules.

This may be the case from the week of April 26, the week before the May vacation. Only if the number of infections decreases sufficiently in the meantime. Probably start the lessons on location after the May vacation, with some exceptions. We then assume an average of 1 day per week physical on location and the practical classes continue as now. On April 13 the next press conference will be held and hopefully more will be clear. We also expect more clarity on the possibility of self-testing and how it will be used. Keep an eye on the announcements in the week of April 14. Each faculty will then communicate the exact details per location.

For now, hang in there, there will come a time when students and faculty can start meeting at school again!

Latest updates Aeres in general

Classes on location after the May holidays

Students in higher education can again follow physical education on location from April 26, for a maximum of one day per week. This became clear in the cabinet's press conference on April 21. For Aeres Hogeschool, this means that the lessons start on location after the May holiday or the week after. There will be communication per faculty about the exact details per location.
