Start of 2020-2021 academic year: Campus is open
Since the corona outbreak, universities all over the world have switched to distance learning. A great alternative, but not ideal when you're just starting out. The Automotive program is therefore offering classes on campus for 1 full day a week. This is only for 1st-year students starting in September this year. So, while learning you'll get to know your classmates and lecturers in person. Great for the group spirit. Alongside the on-campus hours you'll have online classes and self-study at home. Once the government measures are relaxed, the number of on-campus hours will increase.
