The measure means up to one day of lessons a week may be held on campus. Until now no more than 10% of lessons on campus were permitted. The relaxation is conditional on corona figures that continue to improve.
The Ghent rector realises students are having a hard time: “The people at universities and polytechnics charged with helping youngsters are doing their utmost, but it’s not enough. We need more means and more people to do enough. I’m appealing for more means to be released to this end.”
Rector Van De Walle hopes that even more activities will be able to run on campus after the Easter break, but at the minute it’s too early to take that decision.
