The University is committed to ensure the safety and wellbeing of the students, faculty and staff when classes resume on campus in September

and to follow the guidelines of the Swiss and Geneva Health authorities concerning the Covid-19.

Classes will be taught through a hybrid model that will combine the student presence in class and the use of online teaching for those students who are late . This will allow for students who have difficulties arriving on time in Geneva to start with virtual lessons and later join the class. New facilities have been added including a large student lounge as well as a conference room to allow social distancing.

The University has elaborated new regulations and taken several measures from the start in September : hand sanitizers stations will be posted across campus, signage directing people to walk in a single direction, one student per table, free masks and disinfecting wipes will be available and increased classroom cleaning will be introduced.

The masks will be mandatory in public spaces where it is not possible to keep the 1.5-meters distance. In addition, it is the responsibility of each student, faculty and staff to follow the hygiene recommendations in keeping distance and wash their hands regularly.

Guidelines will be regularly updated and posted on campus and the dedicated portals including social media.

We look forward to seeing you in September.

Yours sincerely,

 

Eric Willumsen

President
