Studying from home

Here you will find practical information about studying from home, additional policies and other relevant matters concerning the changed situation due to the corona crisis.

What does it take to be successful in your (online) classes?

Studying, especially online, requires an active attitude. Prepare carefully, turn on your webcam and actively participate in discussions. Interaction with the lecturer and classmates during workgroups and lectures makes studying more fun and increases your study success.

How should you prepare?

  • To participate in online courses and stay in touch with your classmates and lecturers, good facilities are crucial. You need a well-functioning laptop with a webcam and a secure, reliable WiFi connection.
  • Take a look at the course pages on Canvas. Canvas is the digital learning environment, here you will find all course information.
  • Read the Zoom etiquette in online classes on how to prepare yourself for working with Zoom. Zoom is a video tool, similar to Skype, but you don't need an account to participate in online sessions. Use headphones to reduce ambient noise.
  • Access to buildings

    Apart from small-scale activities that we are launching on the campus, studying at home will remain the norm. If you have a lecture on the campus, you can come to the campus. At the end of your lecture, leave the buildings immediately if you do not have any other lectures to attend. Don't hang around. This will allow the other teaching to continue unimpeded in accordance with the RIVM guidelines.

    Please also read studying together safely on the Roeterseilandcampus.

  • Accessibility Study Adviser

    The Study Advisers are there for you if you have any questions. For example, do you have questions about your study planning, your study progress or are there any personal circumstances (whether or not related to the coronacrisis) you would like to discuss? If so, you can contact a Study Adviser.

  • Law Library

    The Law Library (JB) reopens on monday 31 August. Check the Law Library webpage for more information on returning, borrowing and consulting materials and the opening hours.

  • Online exams: Home situation not suitable for exams

    Is the situation at your home unsuitable for participating in an online exam? Please contact the study advisers as soon as possible (at the latest one week before your exam). They will discuss options regarding taking the online exam on campus. Objections against online proctoring are not viewed as personal circumstances for these requests.
