Insufficiently progressing first year’s bachelor students will not be receiving an NBA. They are allowed to continue their course and join the second registration year. However, in the second year they still can receive an NBA. We advise them to discontinue their course in time might they foresee not to progress sufficiently in their second year. And to seek advice from their academic career advisor or student counsellor.
Tests which can be taken online will be held. Any doubt or questions, please turn to your course’s Board of Examiners.
It is determined per course whether admissions can be held online and whether earlier determined timing can continue. Normal procedures still apply. Might you have any questions, please turn to the Board of Examiners for your course.

For the time being, the principle remains that all ArtEZ colleagues work from home, unless your manager asks you to come to ArtEZ. This also applies to externals and freelancers. Now that the corona measures have eased somewhat, more work is being carried out at the ArtEZ locations. But everything is still in consultation with managers and only in specific situations. If you are asked to come to an ArtEZ location and you find it stressful, please discuss this with your manager. It is also possible to consult the company doctor. All ArtEZ buildings are furnished according to the RIVM guidelines so that you can do your work safely.
If you are under contract at ArtEZ, you will be continued to be paid. Alongside your supervisor, you will research the possibilities to continue your work activities as much as possible. Externals may reach out to their regular contact concerning the execution of the work activities/assignment.
The regulation to reduce working hours (regeling werktijdverkorting) is not applicable to our sector. In its place has come a temporary emergency measure ‘Bridging for the purpose of keeping Employment opportunities’: NOW (Noodmaatregel Overbrugging ten behoeve van behoud van Werkgelegenheid).
If you have a temporary contract that ends within this schoolyear, your supervisor will know about this. Contact your supervisor in case you have any questions about the continuation of your employment.
If you become ill and it is not a case of corona contamination, then we ask you to report this through the regular procedure (you could also break a leg while working from home). If you have the suspicion that you do have the Coronavirus, please follow the same reporting procedure. We ask you to specifically inform your supervisor about that. This with regards to locating the source and possible contaminations and our reporting obligation towards the GGD (Common Health Service).
The appointments with the company doctor will be looked at separately, but in principle be changed to telephone consultation hours. The company doctor, by the way, plays no role in diagnosing the Coronavirus. This is the general physician’s role.
That is allowed, but you are not obligated to answer. You may answer if you want to, but an employer is not allowed to collect and register medical data and therefore neither your answer to that question.
In this period it is extra difficult, while working from home, to keep a balance between work and home life. The situation can also be further complicated whenever family members are ill or you have to combine caring for kids with doing your job. Discuss with your supervisor what you would need to arrange this well. In this FAQ you will also find several tools that can support you with this.
Many employees like the idea of using their Flexible Employability Hours (DI-hours) now, for instance for the purpose of childcare. In consultation with the supervisor, the employer can provide care leave in case of illness or necessary nursing of direct family members. The standard regulation care leave is applicable. It is also possible that emergency leave can be claimed. Emergency leave can take several days at the most. This is at the discretion of the supervisor.
Tips and tools that can support you:
For all questions regarding the current situation, you can contact your supervisor or the HRM department through: firstname.lastname@example.org or 026-3535851. Other forms of support can be found below!
We are noticing that because of the current circumstances concerning the Coronavirus, more complaints of strain, stress, fear and anxiety arise in many people. Working from home also can be an enormous challenge.

The cabinet thinks it is important that people with crucial professions are able to keep working and that day-care is available for them. “Teachers and personnel that are needed at school” are included in the target group of crucial professions.

From 17 July to 10 August all ArtEZ buildings are closed for any educational activities, as is usual. The Agnietenplaats, Kortestraat and the Lab in Zwolle are still a subject of discussion. Contrary to previous years teaching/ educational activities may take place during the other weeks, provided they are registered at FAZ. The buildings have been adapted to the national guidelines issued by RIVM to provide a safe workplace.
If you continue working in the weeks before and after the summer closure, you may not use up all your leave hours. The starting point is to use up those hours at a later time in this calendar year (if feasible). Discuss with your manager how to deal with this.
It is important that you take a holiday just like normal. Even now that you may have to give it a different interpretation than you initially intended. Working during this special period requires a greater effort and thus resting is extra important.
When planning your vacation, pay attention to the travel advice from the government!
The government advice is to stay in the Netherlands.
Traveling to an area with yellow travel advice ("be extra careful") such as Germany is fine.
Traveling to an area with orange travel advice (“only necessary travel”), such as outside Europe, is risky. For example, you may not be entitled to wages if you have to be quarantined after your holiday or cannot return home on time. The advice is not to travel to areas with orange travel advice.
