Laurea University of Applied Sciences switches immediately to remote work

Due to potential corona virus exposures revealed over the weekend, Laurea's students and staff are moving on to remote work.

The decision is based on suspected exposures during last week, the extent of which are presently unknown. To protect students, staff and other members of the Laurea community, Laurea will close all campuses for the time being. We are moving teaching online or through other means.

We have already prepared for the transition to remote work to minimise risks and protect our community. We are accelerating the transition due to increased risk. The security of our students, staff and the rest of the community is paramount in this situation.

Laurea will organize an internal online press conference for its staff on 16.3. at 3:30 p.m.
