On Monday 17 May, Xamk’s Savonlinna campus will switch back to the hybrid model of teaching* in line with the recommendation given by Sosteri, East Savo Hospital District. On Kotka and Kouvola campuses, remote teaching in all theory subjects will continue until Sunday 23 May.

Practical teaching, including simulation and laboratory exercises and Paja workshop training, are arranged on all campuses, using the required protection.  In the simulation instruction of blended programmes in the field of social and health care, the group size is limited to 20 students in Mikkeli and 6 students on the other campuses.

The management team also decided that the hybrid model of teaching will continue over the summer until August 15. Most likely, the hybrid model will still continue in the autumn semester of 2021.

All teaching instructions also apply to continuous le​arning (open university of applied sciences and continuing education).
