Back in the classroom

10 June 2020

Following two months of online learning, we were delighted to be able to welcome students back into the classroom and restart some direct teaching...

The last few weeks have brought out the best in our students and faculty as we quickly reacted to the challenges posed by the Covid-19 outbreak and adopted an online teaching mode.

While we were very happy with the speed and smoothness of this transition, online classes are not quite a substitute for the experience of being in class and interacting with your peers and lecturers.

We were therefore delighted to be able to welcome students back into the classroom this week following the latest updates to the Swiss guidelines.

Of course, we are still respecting social distancing guidelines and limiting numbers per class; however, it was a real pleasure to see the genuine delight on our students faces on being able to get back to a sense of normal teaching.

Some of our students from our May intake have still not been able to travel to Switzerland so to accommodate them, all classes are streamed live via Microsoft Teams with the off-campus students able to contribute directly to the lecturer’s headset.

We look forward to being able to welcome all remaining students to campus as soon as it is safe and possible!
