WUR teaching will be online only in both period 5 and period 6. That means no more lessons on campus before the summer holidays.

This decision comes after WUR discussed the matter with other universities. WUR is, however, keeping its options open to some extent; measures may be adjusted depending on how the pandemic develops in the Netherlands. ‘There may be room for fieldwork and practicals in the second half of period 6,’ according to a letter sent to programme directors.

An exception may also be made for lab and experimental work in graduation subjects. Permission will be needed from the chair-holder for this. Students who need to work in a campus building as a result must stick to WUR’s coronavirus hygiene rules (see www.wur.nl).
