Information about precautions and procedures for the corona virus (COVID-19) at Business Academy Aarhus
Last updated 25 October at 10:00
From Thursday, 29 October 2020, a partial requirement to wear facemasks at the Academy will come into force. This means that all students and staff must wear a mask when moving around within the Academy for example in the canteen, or corridors. A facemask is not required when students are sitting down in classrooms.
You must bring your own facemask with you to the Academy.
These restrictions (and all the previous ones) will last until 2 Jan 2021.
The limit of 10 for gatherings does not count for teaching.
All programmes and classes will still be conducted as physical teaching at the Academy. Please consult the timetable for your class.
We have prepared precise guidelines for physical teaching at the Academy. The general rule is that everyone must obey the 1 m social distancing rule. The main exception is that students do not have to keep a 1 m distance in their fixed classroom when they have teaching with their permanent class/permanent group.
Students doing internships
If students in internships are sent home by a company, they must work on assignments for the company and follow the company’s guidelines. The internship period will not be extended.
Access to buildings only if you have an appointment
Student access to Academy buildings is only allowed if you have physical teaching, or you have an appointment with an employee (e.g. exam or an agreed physical meeting with an employee, e.g. the student counsellors or librarian).
If you are coming to Denmark from abroad
If you go to one of the countries that the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs advises against travelling to during the summer holidays, the Danish Health Authority recommends that you self-isolate for 14 days. The Academy follows the recommendations of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Danish Health Authority. This means that we expect staff and students to self-isolate for 14 days if they have stayed in one of the countries which the Ministry of Foreign Affairs advises against travelling to.
For students, this means that the 14 days must be completed before they meet at the Academy.
As the Ministry of Foreign Affairs updates the list of these countries on an ongoing basis, you must stay up to date, see, for example, www.um.dk/en
We follow the authorities' guidelines
Business Academy Aarhus is closely monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) and follows all guidelines from the Danish authorities. We will update this page if there is news of any special precautions we need to take at the Academy. Everyone is encouraged to follow the Danish authorities’ website for general information concerning the coronavirus.
The Ministry of Higher Education and Science has published an FAQ with questions and answers in English for students and institutions about the consequences of the COVID-19 situation. Please consult this FAQ, also for questions about SU (the educational grant) as a supplement to the info published on this site - the FAQ from the Ministry is often updated before this site.
If you need to contact someone at the Academy, we encourage you to do so via e-mail. Find employee e-mail addresses here
