Classes for 2021/22 intake are expected to be delivered both in presence and online due to the current situation.

Our hope and intention for 2021/22 intake are to entirely restore in-person teaching, while respecting any health and safety requirements set by national and local competent authorities. 
In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, should students not be able to attend classes in person, a hybrid format of in-person and online will be guaranteed to enable attendance from home, while guaranteeing full access to all learning opportunities and resources.
