Studying and Corona

Safe study in the AMC

As of 17 January education can again take place on location with a limit of 75 people per space. Examinations can still go ahead on location without a limit. Please keep an eye on your schedule and Canvas for the most current information.

Face masks 

One of the biggest changes is the extended face mask requirement: this applies not just when walking around, but also when sitting down, i.e. during lectures. The reccomendation is not to wear a cloth face mask, but a single-use mask, preferably a type 2 face mask.

The following rules apply as of 17 January:

  • Education on location is allowed with a limit of 75 people per space.
  • Wear a face mask at all times, unless it needs to come of to give or follow a lecture.
  • Scheduled exams can go ahead on location. We are taking extra safety measures. We will make sure people are able to keep sufficient distance when entering and exiting, in the rooms and the hallways.
  • Keep your distance where possible.
  • The Medical Library (with a maximum of 75 students) and study spaces is available to students who have in-person education before or after. And for those students who are unable to study from home.
  • Do a Covid self-test twice a week. The tests can be ordered free of charge at You can also pick up self-tests at the MFAS.
  • You have to report a positive test result via the DSSD.
  • Please only stay in the students area and do NOT enter the hospital (and therefore do NOT enter Voetenplein/AH To go).
