We expect that COVID-19 will still be a significant societal issue this autumn, and therefore CBS has already begun planning the autumn semester.
We know that it can be hard for many students to keep up with the online classes and studying alone at home. We also know how much it matters to students to be able to come on campus and meet their lecturers and their fellow students. Therefore, we are planning the schedules in such a way that every student will be able to have classes on campus during the autumn semester.
It is CBS' assessment that the most likely scenario is that there will still be limits on how many people can gather combined with requirements of social distancing when everything opens up again
Therefore, it will not be possible to offer all classes and lectures on campus. For the majority of our students this will mean that about half of their classes will be on campus and half will be online.
Principles for teaching and exams in the autumn
CBS wish to exercise due diligence and continue to ensure the quality of our all our study programmes. Therefore, we have already decided on a number of principles for teaching and exams during the autumn semester:
- that around 50% of the teaching you receive will be on campus
- that lectures and other classes with more than 100 students will be changed to smaller classes or be conducted online
- that classes with less than 100 students may be conducted on campus – but they might also be conducted online
- that some courses may be a mixture of online classes and on campus classes
- that exams will be planned in such a way that they can be changed to an online version should it become necessary
- that the number of written exams will be reduced
