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.

6 July 2020

Aeres UAS maintains the travelling advice with regards to international travelling, as described earlier on this website of June 12. As of September 1 2020, travelling abroad in some cases is allowed for internships, excursions and work visits. Travel advice provided by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is leading in decisions with regards to travelling of both employees and students.

This means that travelling when a code red or orange is indicated, no permission will be given to travel. When a code yellow is indicated, travelling is only permitted after discussion and with the approval of the involved team manager and lecturer.

In case of a newly imposed lockdown, Aeres UAS is not responsible nor liable for costs involving repatriation and other costs involved or incurred as a result of this lockdown.

12 June 2020

Travel advice provided by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is leading in decisions with regards to travelling of both employees and students. As Aeres UAS we would like to reiterate we stand firm on our former decision, as described earlier on this website, that no travelling abroad is allowed for internships, excursions, studying abroad as part of your study programme and work visits until September 1, 2020. This means that both students and staff members are not allowed to travel abroad for internships, work visits, studying abroad as part of your study programme or excursions abroad. The phasing out of the COVID19measures of several countries does not mean we are without any danger of new infections. The re-opening of borders for summer holidays by some countries will not change this decision. With this decision, Aeres UAS tries to prevent that in these uncertain times students or staff members need to be evacuated i.e. repatriated, or be possibly stuck abroad due to a second wave. Travelling abroad as part of internships applies to this policy.

In due course this decision will be reassessed and evaluated with regards to the period after September 1, relying heavily on official policy and travel advice from our ministry of foreign affairs and other independent organisations.

If you would like to travel to a country that is designated as a yellow zone for travel, you will have to discuss this with your teacher.

Relaxations possible in Aeres educational activities

The relaxations announced by the government on July 24 with regard to the corona measures offer extra space for Aeres' educational activities.

Aeres VMBO
For Aeres VMBO, education will return to normal as of the start of the 2020/21 school year. The one and a half meter rule between students is canceled. However, they must keep a distance of one and a half meters from the (teaching) staff. The one and a half meter rule also remains in force for employees themselves.

Aeres University of Applied Science (Aeres UAS) and Aeres MBO
For Aeres UAS and Aeres MBO, more education is possible on location as of the start of the 2020/21 study year. However, the one and a half meter rule remains in full force for students and staff. The institutions are therefore preparing for a combination of on-site and online education. The best way to fill this in is determined per grade and per location.

Aeres Tech and Aeres Training Centers
The commercial trainings that take place within Aeres Tech and the Aeres Training Centers, will again take place in the normal way from July 1, with due observance of the one and a half meter rule.

Trips abroad
Until 1 September 2020, there will be no internships, excursions or study trips for students within Aeres, even to countries for which the travel advice has been relaxed. At the beginning of July, Aeres will decide on the possible space that will arise again after 1 September 2020. The travel advice from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs will be leading in this.

Open days and events
From 1 July 2020, open days and other events can be prepared and / or organized within Aeres. The RIVM guidelines must be adhered to at all times. This means, among other things, that the one and a half meter rule is applied and, if applicable, the maximums set for the number of visitors inside or outside.
