At its meeting on Monday, the Management Team decided that Xamk will start the academic year in the hybrid model. This means that the students who started their studies in January 2021 or are starting in autumn 2021 will study on campus (contact teaching). The only exception is Information Technology, which is taught remotely. For continuing students, theoretical instruction is arranged remotely. Practical instruction, including simulations, laboratory work and similar activities, are organised on campus (contact teaching) for all students.The hybrid model instructions also apply to continuous learning (open university of applied sciences and continuing education) and everyone must wear a disposable mouth and nose mask and follow the hygiene instructions.
Xamk strongly urges all students to wear face masks on campus. Xamk will distribute cloth masks for new students (two pieces / person) as long as they are available. Also disposable masks are available on campuses.
Xamk recommends that students take the coronavirus vaccination and will inform students about the vaccination events organised by hospital districts.
The sports and recreational facilities on campuses are in use and instructed sport groups can be organised, following the safety distances and hygiene instructions.
The guidelines applicable to teaching concern also open UAS, continuing education and commissioned education.
