As we offer a very warm welcome to our new and returning students for Term B, here is the current situation update at IMI...

Term B at IMI has now officially started, and we are pleased to report that classes will resume in face-to-face mode on Monday 10th May 2021.

We are also delighted to report that we continue to have no reported cases of Covid-19 on campus and offer a reminder that all incoming students from overseas are subject to isolation/quarantine.

All teaching for Term B will be face-to-face in class. However, there is an exception for classes taught by external guest lecturers based outside of Switzerland, who are unable to travel. These sessions will continue to be taught online, until such time comes when they can also be facilitated face-to-face.

Should there be any variations to the above, or the physical class sizes exceed the allowed limits from the Swiss Federal Government, IMI will make relevant amendments and students will be notified accordingly.

Essential guidelines

  • Face masks are compulsory in all areas of the campus, except whilst eating and in your bedrooms;
  • Avoid meeting in groups;
  • Wash your hands regularly and use disinfectant;

  • Visitors are allowed on campus solely for business reasons or meetings, with prior approval from one of the Directors, and must always sign in and sign out at Reception;
  • Students contemplating travel outside of Luzern and/or overseas are obliged to relay any travel arrangements to Mrs Frey on or on TEAMS in advance. IMI Travel Guidelines remain applicable until further notice.
