With the ongoing vaccination campaign, we expect to start the new academic year on campus. In addition, all classes will be executed in hybrid mode, i.e. classes can be followed simultaneously physically on campus or virtually online. Thanks to the live-streaming set-up, virtual participants will be able to enjoy maximum interaction and co-working possibilities with fellow participants. Depending on the restrictions of the moment and possible changing travel advice, participants can take classes one day on-campus, the other day virtual online. So maximum flexibility is guaranteed.
