Returning to the classroom – we’re ready for face-to-face learning

Returning to the classroom – we’re ready for face-to-face learning


Ensuring a safe learning environment

When you participate in one of our face-to-face programmes at Woudestein Campus, we’ve taken the measures to assure your health and safety.

Before coming to campus

Self-tests can help to limit the risk of COVID-19 contamination during our educational activities. Although self-testing is not mandatory, we would like to advise you to take a self-test on the first day of the programme. To support this, we will send a self-test to your home address. If you have any symptoms of cold or flu, please stay at home. 
Travel to the campus by car, bike, or on foot if you can. Only use public transport if there is no alternative. Parking for bikes, motorbikes and cars (including charging points for electric cars) is available on campus. 

On campus 

Although it is no longer required to wear a mask when moving around the location, you are of course free to do so. When entering the Bayle building, please register at the front desk by giving them your name. 

More information

If your programme takes place in another location off campus, the venue that we use will take the measures needed to assure a safe environment. Before the start of every programme, whether on campus or in another venue, you will receive more details of the guidelines that we ask everyone to follow. Above all, we ask everyone to apply their common sense and follow the hygiene rules at all times. If you have any questions about the measures that are taken, please contact your programme manager.


Travelling from abroad

Travelling from an 'orange' or a 'red' zone country

When you travel to or from an 'orange' or 'red zone' country, you do not have to quarantine if you are fully vaccinated. In other cases, you need to self-quarantine. Self-quarantining means that you cannot come to campus or your course location within the 10 days after your arrival. If you get tested on day five fo your quarantine, you might be able to shorten the quarantine period. See government advice here. Certain exceptions apply to the self-quarantine rules. If you are are unsure whether you are in an “orange” or “red” zone country, we ask you to check the government website, as soon as possible. Should you have any questions about the above, please check the government website or send us an email. 


Potential changes in the future

Changes in government regulations

We can never guarantee a face-to-face delivery format for future programmes, since we will always adhere to the measures by the Dutch government to assure your health and safety. If the future situation does not allow for face-to-face programme delivery, we will notify you that your registration will transfer to participation in a ‘virtual classroom’ version of the same programme that you have registered for. If you do not wish to participate in the virtual version of the programme, please tell us as soon as possible via openprogrammes@rsm.nl.

Virtual classrooms

In case government regulations change, we will move our programmes to the virtual classroom. Our virtual classrooms deliver the exact same programme content, and have been designed to deliver an optimal learning experience. In the virtual classroom, you can:

  • ask the facilitator questions
  • connect with peers online; discussion and engagement is a vital part of learning, and is encouraged, stimulated and facilitated in the virtual classroom
  • interact with your fellow participants via group assignments in virtual breakout rooms. 

The online programme is split into modules over a period of time. The amount of classroom time remains the same, and we will inform you of the virtual classroom schedule as soon as we can, if indeed the programme needs to transfer to an online experience.
