What does "code orange" or "code red" mean for the lessons on campus?

  • Under "code orange" the language lessons can still take place on campus. Contact learning in small groups will then remain possible. The university ensures that the lessons and the circulation on the campuses can be organised safely. Linguapolis and our language teachers are also doing everything they can to ensure that the language courses run optimally.
  • Under "code orange", different rules apply to the use of face masks, depending on the type of classroom. Your language teacher will give you the necessary instructions.
  • In times of "code red" we are obliged to switch to full online learning. Until the end of February code red is in use. 

Will the courses start 'normally' in February, March and April?

For all courses starting in February, March and April you can find the planned course organisation (on campus, online or a combination) on the webpage of the language. 

What does 'online course' involve?

In online courses, face-to-face lessons are replaced by guided distance learning. You will be guided by an experienced Linguapolis language teacher, just like in a regular course.

Are there any courses planned that will definitely and completely go online?

Yes, the following online courses are currently scheduled (in addition to those planned on Campus or on Campus&online)

  • Dutch morning courses level 1, 2, 3, 4 (4x/week) from February to March 
  • Dutch evening course level 1, 2, 3, 4 (2x/week) from February to June

  • Spanish evening course level 1 (2x/week) from March to May
  • Dutch morning courses level 1, 2, 3, 4 (4x/week) from April to June

What about the exams?

All courses will end with an exam and a certificate, even if the exam takes place online. The learning objectives of the online courses are exactly the same as those of the on-campus courses. Participants will receive all the necessary information from their language teacher in good time.

I am entitled to the 'Vlaams Opleidingsverlof, VOV'. Are my mandatory attendances okay if I take the online classes?

(only for participants studying Dutch as a Foreign Language) 

Yes, they are fine.You only have to participate in the final exam. If you do not participate, you are not entitled to the Vlaams Opleidingsverlof.
