As from 1 September 2021 onwards, we are happy to welcome our students, participants, alumni and visitors again to our fully open, lively, and energetic school under code Green.
Our re-invigorated programme portfolio provides thought-provoking, personalised learning journeys, in formats that have been completely adapted to the new normal. Depending on your programme, you can expect to be deeply immersed in a combination of online learning and on-campus teaching in small groups.
Your safety is always our number one concern. So, we have robust, proven measures in place to keep our learning environments safe, in line with the guidelines and policies of the Belgian government. As these guidelines differ for Brussels due to a lower vaccination ratio compared to Flanders and Wallonia, so do the specific measures for our Brussels campus.
Physical distancing of 1.5 m is no longer imposed. This allows us to organise face-to-face learning and research activities on campus, using our lecture rooms at full capacity again. Of course, ventilation and monitoring of CO2 levels are in place, and we roll out the Airsteril Clean Air technology on our premises. And if you are feeling unwell at campus, self-tests and temperature checks remain available at our reception desks. Additionally, all basic prevention measures remain in place. We keep focussing on hand hygiene and we foresee in additional cleaning.
Ghent and Leuven campus
As over 70% of the population in the Flemish region has been vaccinated, wearing a face mask is no longer obliged while being seated in a lecture room or breakout room. When you walk around on campus however, wearing a face mask is still mandatory.
As less than 70% of the population in the Brussels region has been vaccinated, government guidelines are still more strict, at least until beginning of October. Wearing a face mask is still obliged as from the moment you enter the campus. Both for students and participants, as well as faculty and guest speakers, wearing a face mask is mandatory while being seated as well as while walking around.
International students and participants traveling to and from Belgium are requested to comply with the guidelines and colour codes for international travel.
