Right now, many people receive scam emails where the sender pretends to be the IT support at Arcada who announces that your email inbox is full. This is a so-called phishing attempt.
We have discovered cases of "phishing" among student accounts. The accounts are now closed and the students are informed.
As of today, Arcada has called home all students who are on exchange within the framework of our exchange programme. Each student is contacted individually.
In order to best ensure the opportunities for you as a student to complete your courses, the education at Arcada continue normally until further notice.
For the time being, the education at Arcada will continue as usual, but we have cancelled all visits from abroad (e.g. guest lecturers) and staff that have been travelling abroad are required to work from home for 14 days when returning home.
Arcada is actively monitoring the development of the coronavirus (covid-19) and updates the latest information here at Start: https://start.arcada.fi/en/corona-virus-covid-19 - please

Digitalization is part of Arcada’s strategy, but there are still lots of questions around digitalization.
