    • Year III students will spend 1 day on site every (other) week.


    Students need to plan accommodation accordingly. The Academy will suggest housing alternatives for students and support them in searching for the most appropriate accommodation.




    The Academy is aware that there might be financial burdening due to the pandemic situation. As such we are committed to support all our students in continuing and completing their studies with us. We have therefore devised several financial support measures:
