We think it is important you are able to connect with your fellow students in real life. However, the past year we experienced that there are also advantages of online education, such as added flexibility, online lectures from experts abroad and lesser travel time. Therefore, we decided to aim for a combination of online and live education coming study year.
What does this mean? Fulltime students will come together at the LUMC campus twice a week on Thursdays and Fridays. On Mondays and Tuesdays you will follow live online lectures. For part-time students, on demand lectures are offered throughout the week, and there will be an on campus day on Fridays. (International) students who cannot visit the campus, will be offered a solution to join the live education online (hybride).
