Latest updates Aeres in general

Much attention to ventilation

The situation around corona has made it clear that good air quality is important in spaces where people learn and work. Aeres focuses on this topic in order to provide a safe working climate at the educational locations.

Each building has its own ventilation options. Where air treatment takes place, incoming air is filtered, after which it is also extracted and discharged outside. So there is no recirculation of "used" air. The mechanical ventilation is set in such a way that it runs at full power 24/7.
Locations without air treatment have the option of opening windows. Here the advice is followed to open windows regularly to provide adequate ventilation.

With these measures, Aeres ensures a continuous supply of fresh outside air and a rapid removal of used air, which is important to prevent possible virus spread.

July 7, 2020

Until 1 September 2020, there will be no internships, excursions or study trips for students within Aeres, even to countries for which the travel advice has been relaxed. As of September 1 it is only in certain cases possible to travel for work or study purposes. We always follow the recommendations of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in our travelling policy. This means that it is not allowed to travel internationally to countries that are marked as a red or orange zone for travel. If you would like to travel to a country that is designated as a yellow zone for travel, you will have to discuss this with your teacher. 

In case of a lockdown of a country Aeres will not be responsible for costs of return or other costs that are related to the lockdown.
