In accordance with the recommendations of the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH), unnecessary international travel for personal and professional reasons should be avoided. If you have to travel internationally, it is essential that you inform yourself in advance about local rules and regulations.
The classrooms are designed for all learners (HoKo) and students (PIF, HF, Bachelor) for face-to-face and distance learning (livestreaming). The personnel capacity of the individual classrooms requires a corresponding timetable, which is communicated in good time. Due to safety regulations, a "hybrid" form of teaching is necessary. This means that the learning content is taught in a mixture of face-to-face, distance and online lessons.
