Please note: Sedu continues the ban on international mobility until the end of July 2021. (Updated on the 4th of February 2021)


8.10.2020 Sedu moves part of the education online due to the increse in COVID-19 cases
Since the number of COVID-19 cases continues to rise in the region, Sedu has decided to operate in a hybrid mode. This means that part of the education will be organised online, but contact education will also be offered. The decreased amount of students going daily to the campuses will hopefully help us to prevent the exposure to the virus.

If the COVID-19 situation gets worse, Sedu is on standby to move all education online rapidly. 

Also remember:

- Using a face mask is highly recommended whenever holding a safe distance (1,5 metres)  is not possible. 
- Washing your hands often is necessary and helps to prevent the virus from spreading
- Cough and sneeze hygienically
