Studying Safely

To contain the spread of coronavirus, WU offers distance learning. This means that your courses are currently not held on campus but remotely. Courses will continue to be held online until the end of September 2020 (This also includes the Summer University*). Exams are also offered online, with very few exceptions. Remote courses and exams are of course somewhat different than courses and exams on campus.

*Exception: During the 2020 Summer University in September, STEOP courses will partly be held on location. We will keep you posted on what teaching mode will be used for these courses, and what dates classes will be held on. This information is abailable in the course catalog.

What will the 2020/21 winter semester starting in October look like?

In the winter semester, courses will be taught on campus again - however, there will be limited activity on campus. For each course in the winter semester, you will find an "Procedure for the course in case of limited activity on campus " in the course catalog. For more details, please refer to the "Distance and Hybrid Learning" and "Coronavirus" pages below.

Below you will find information on distance and hybrid learning, online exams, and coronavirus news for WU students.
