The Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare has updated its recommendation on the use of face masks. The updated recommendation also applies to higher educations institutions during the epidemic’s so-called acceleration phase.
As of 3 August campus is open to students and the public weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Continued opening hours and more detailed instructions for the autumn will be given in mid-August based on the national recommendations and an analysis of the overall situation.
We remind you to continue to observe good hand hygiene and safety distances when you visit on campus.
Today, Arcada was audited and we passed the audit. We received a renewed certificate and can continue to work for a better environment and sustainable development. We will get a report later that shows our strengths and what still could be improved.

Have a nice summer and hope to see you in August!
The survey Corona in the rear-view mirror is completed. A total of 892 students and 143 employees contributed with answers. Thus, the response activity among students was 39% and among the staff 71%. In addition to responses to the closed questions, more than 900 successful and less successful learning activities were described. A fantastic result!
The material will provide a good picture of how Arcada managed to deal with the sudden change due to the Corona pandemic, and provide us with valuable information for future challenges.
Due to the uncertain situation at this time, we would like to inform you that at this stage we are planning for mostly online solutions for the autumn.
Our department has mainly large lecture groups and therefore, we are currently planning to offer our lectures online. However, lectures will be held according to the existing timetable and we expect all students to actively participate in them.
