General safety instructions – protect your health and the health of others

Please come to campus only if you are healthy! By following the coronavirus protection guidelines, we act in solidarity and at the same time take care of our own and each other's health safety. You can wear a face mask on campus if you want to.


Autumn 2022 we will provide quality education on campus and in part also remotely. The first- and second-year courses in the bachelor’s programmes will be held primarily on campus. Master’s studies are planned flexibly according to the needs of our students.
