Starting of studies in January 2021

The development of the coronavirus situation is monitored daily at SeAMK. The Security Management Team meets regularly and, if necessary, specifies instructions to ensure safe operation in all circumstances. 

Continuing students (those who have started their studies in autumn 2020 or earlier)

As the pandemic situation changes, the guidelines may need to be changed quickly. Please, constantly follow SeAMK’s coronavirus instructions onintra.seamk.fi. 

Unless there are significant changes in the coronavirus situation, SeAMK’s teaching for continuing students will continue at the beginning of January, mainly in distance learning. Everything else except laboratory, simulation and necessary small group work, as well as exams for continuing students (who started their studies in the autumn of 2020 or earlier) are carried out as distance learning. The above-mentioned teaching can be carried out on Campus with a maximum of 20 people at a time in the same space. SeAMK offers masks for the above-mentioned teaching and exam situations. Teachers will inform students in more detail about the practicalities.

Let’s take care of our safety together

When working and studying on Campus, special attention should be paid to adequate safety distances and enhanced hand hygiene. 

A face mask is used whenever there is more than one person in the same space. This should also be kept in mind when walking and staying in the hallways, lobby areas and restaurants.
