FASoS Faculty Board urges all students and staff to wear a face mask

The Faculty Board urges all students and staff to wear a face mask when walking in the corridors and moving from one place to another (both inside the FASoS buildings, as well as outside when moving between buildings).

You are not obliged to wear a face mask in tutorial rooms or offices, but we urge you to wear a face mask in situations where the 1.5-metre distance rule cannot be guaranteed. Please do keep in mind that the 1.5-metre distance rule stays in place.

Record a video message for our graduates!

At the end of this year, the FASoS graduation ceremonies will take place online. We completely understand that this is not the format that many students had hoped for and we also would have liked to welcome all graduates to an offline event. Nevertheless, the pandemic is far from over and we need to ensure the health and safety of all.

We do intend to make this online ceremony as festive as an offline ceremony would have been. For this, we need your help!

Once the measures are relaxed again and we can return to work, new dates for making pictures will be set.

Exceptions to quarantine rules for cross-border workers

A cross-border worker (‘grenswerker’) is an employee who, in principle, returns to the country of residence daily (or on a regular weekly basis). Until now, UM only allowed cross-border workers from orange areas to physically come to work at UM if they fulfilled a “vital function”.

From now on, in principle, all cross-border workers living in an orange area may come to work.
