If the Swiss government changes the restrictions regarding the number of people allowed on campus, will the Hyflex system be adapted mid-way through the semester to adapt to new measures?
Yes. Since the HyFlex model allows us to adapt the onsite presence, we will be able to move more students to remote learning if the campus capacity is further limited, or on the contrary expand the onsite presence if measures are eased.
What should I do if I arrive from a country considered at high risk and have to complete a quarantine?
