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 your degree. That's why the Communication program is offering 50% of regular contact hours on campus for 1st-year students starting in September this year. You'll come to campus 2 days a week for 6 hours each day. Time to get to know your classmates and lecturers in person. Become familiar with the campus. And develop some group spirit within your class and program. Alongside the on-campus hours you'll have online classes and self-study at home.
