The RUG wants to pack students into a sweaty exam hall that smells like nervousness (again)
Medicine students at the University of Groningen are very unhappy with a decision to simply make remaining exams in-person again and not online anymore. The Faculty Board of Medicine has now said that remaining exams this semester must be undertaken at the Aletta Jacobs exam hall. As reported by the GIC.
According to the UKrant university newspaper, unrest has arisen among medical students after the Faculty Board decided to hold all remaining exams of the semester in the Aletta Jacobs hall.
According to the worried students, students that are studying whilst abroad are in particular the victims of this decision (and some pay up to 30,000 euros per year tuition fees), because they then have to return to Groningen and would not be able to comply with the Coronavirus regulations.
The last exam is on December 17, and then foreign students can sometimes no longer celebrate Christmas with their families after the exam, because they have to be quarantined for two weeks.
