Where and how do you have classes this year?

Thomas More started the second semester in colour code red. With this decision we want to do our bit to limit the spread of the coronavirus. The courses are mainly online because the circulation on campus, the commuting and the social contacts between classes are risky. With code red, live contacts are limited. Labs, skills labs and practical classes will continue on campus.

A well-balanced mix of online and on campus learning

*Update code red: There's a general mouth mask obligation. Even when you're sitting down.

What colour code does Thomas More apply?

The latest updates on the colour code and measures for the organization of education can be checked here.

I’m a student or staff member. Where can I find the latest updates about the COVID-19 measures?

Staff members can find all updates and information on the intranet. Students can easily find everything they need to know on the Student Portal.

Online or on campus: you don't have to miss a thing!

Practical classes are on campus, with the necessary safety measures. Other classes and exams are still taking place online as much as possible. Our efforts are paying off: the corona figures in our country are falling, although slowly.

Make sure you read about the requirements for laptops and software.

Is it safe on campus?

Yes. We have chosen to consistently apply the rules of social distancing in combination with wearing face masks and strict hand hygiene. This will ensure that all contacts have a low risk of infection and that you do not have to quarantine immediately if you come into contact with an infected person. Check here to find all measures necessary to prevent getting infected with the coronavirus.

Do I have to wear a face mask?

There's a general mouth mask obligation in colour code red. Even when you're sitting down. If we change back to code orange you may take off the mask when you are seated in your classroom or workplace at a distance of at least 1,5 meters from your fellow students. You will need to bring your own mask with you to school. 
Attention: also outside, in a radius of 200 meters around the campus you have to wear a mouth mask.

Can I eat lunch on campus?

The student restaurants are currently closed in code red.

Are the learning centres open, and can I study on campus?

The learning centres will close at code red. You can still study there, but you have to reserve a place in advance via your care coordinator. 

Can I stay in a student room?

Maybe you’re not sure if you still want to live in a student room because you will come to campus less than in 'normal' times. However, if you live far away from campus and want to avoid inconvenient travel, a student room is still a good idea. But of course, a student room is more than just a place to stay. It’s also the beginning of your independent life, giving you the chance to stand on your own two feet, cook your own meals and experience life as a student. You can easily start your search online using our housing database.

Will I still be able to experience student life?

Of course! Our Student Services (Stuvo) will certainly plan (safe) activities. Also, check Stuvo's Instagram page and your campus Facebook page for all updates: Campus Antwerpen, De Nayer, Geel, Lier, Mechelen, Turnhout or Vorselaar.

Where can I go with all my other questions?

As an international student, you can count on us!

For everything that has to do with your student life, and not directly with your study programme, you can also contact Stuvo (short for Student Services). For questions about student life and help with studying or personal problems, Stuvo will continue to be available online for video calls, chats or telephone calls.
