Starting the second semester in normal circumstances is out of the question because of the increasing infection rates. Therefore, VUB and all other Flemish universities have decided to continue mostly digital teaching for the time being. Exercise classes and practical sessions will be organised on-campus as much as possible. The lectures, with a few exceptions, will continue to be taught online for now.
This is the current arrangement:
• Lectures online.
• Exercise classes, labs (WPOs) and practical sessions take place on-campus.
• All physical events, meet-ups and non-emergency meetings remain cancelled. We will wait and see what the governments decides. Current government measures are in place until the end of January.
• Research will continue according to the current security measures.
• Doctoral examinations can also continue to take place, with a seated audience.
We are ready to switch to 'code green'. This means that we would like all educational activities to continue physically when the epidemiological situation improves.
