In accordance with the guidelines issued by Kymsote on Thursday 7 January, the recommendation to organise instruction remotely in Kymenlaakso also applies to higher education institutions.  Resulting from this, all students of Xamk’s Kouvola and Kotka campuses, including new students starting in January, will study remotely between 11 January and 31 January 2021. Simulation and laboratory exercises and Paja workshop training are arranged on campus, using the required protection.

The course teachers will provide their students with more specific information on the remote teaching arrangements.
