On Friday, 14 January, the Dutch government announced the re-opening of higher education and universities have been welcoming their students back on campus.
For PPLE this means that, after a transition week from 17-21 January, classes can take place on campus again starting on Monday, 24 January.
From Monday, 7 February, all classes will be taking place on campus. We are expecting students to return to campus, but offer some hybrid options for those who, due to Covid-related health problems, quarantine or other personal circumstances, cannot participate in on campus teaching. Should you experience symptoms, be infected with Covid or have to quarantine, please inform your tutor directly. In case of other personal circumstances, consult your Study adviser.
We are very happy to return to campus, but would like to ask you to comply with the following:
Finally, we would like to repeat the government’s and the UvA’s strong recommendation to get vaccinated. By now nearly everyone above 18 can make an appointment to get a booster vaccination. Vaccinations and self-testing are our strongest assets to ensure a safe campus and ease the pressure on the health care system. Find more information about how and where to get vaccinated in Amsterdam here.
At PPLE, we remain committed to collectively creating an environment where we are considerate of each other and where everyone can feel safe while studying or teaching. What we do and how we behave will affect our friends, our fellow students, and university staff members. Therefore, we would like to bring to your attention the PPLE College community norms summarised in our Code of Conduct.
To make it more predictable what measures will apply at PPLE as the situation changes, we set up three scenarios at the beginning of the academic year. With the rules currently in place, we are in the red scenario.
