Due to the current coronavirus situation, Xamk’s Management Team has decided that teaching in this spring semester will be organised in accordance with the so-called hybrid model* until 30 May 2021. The decision made previously was valid until 7 March 2021.

The Management Team also made the decision that the spring graduation ceremony of 28 May will be held virtually only.

Campus-specific situations

In line with Sosteri’s recommendation, remote teaching on Savonlinna campus continues until 7 March. Simulations, laboratory training and other practical exercises are cancelled, and all campus services are closed. Similarly, the practical training periods of Savonlinna campus students at Sosteri units are suspended until 7 March.

In Kymenlaakso, the students of Xamk’s Kotka and Kouvola campuses will study remotely until 28 February 2021 in line with Kymsote’s guidelines presently in force.

Teaching on Mikkeli campus continues in the hybrid model.

Additional information:


* The hybrid model means that groups who started in January 2021 or autumn 2020 study on campus (with the exception of Information Technology, which is taught remotely). Practical instruction, including simulations, laboratory work, Paja workshop exercises and similar, are organised on campus for all students, in accordance with the respective plans. Anyone participating in these must wear a mask.

EXCEPTIONS: When the authorities decide or recommend that the students of any Xamk campus should switch to remote studying, these instructions are observed. The switch to remote studying is effective immediately following the official decision or recommendation, and similarly, when it expires, Xamk returns to the teaching mode that was in use previously.
