The global political situation has caused anxiety and concern among students. At Diaconia University of Applied Sciences, everyday life is also safeguarded in the midst of the crisis by actively providing students with support services.
Diak is prepared in advance for the worsening coronavirus situation, and much of the teaching at the beginning of the year has been transferred to distance education in accordance with the instructions of the Ministry of Education and Culture. Only essential contact teaching takes place on campuses.
The Board of Directors of Diaconia University of Applied Sciences has unanimously decided at its meeting on 26 October 2021 to renew the Diak campus structure in accordance with a presentation by CEO, Rector Elina Juntunen.
We are now recruiting new, enthusiastic Diak ambassadors from our students to tell about their studies and to market Diak on our social media channels, school visits and events during the autumn semester.
Diak’s corona task force has aligned that distance teaching and learning continues in Diak until the end of spring term (30 June 2021). The task force estimates that the covid-19 situation will not improve significantly during the next few months because the vaccinations of the population have started slowly, and the new coronavirus variant has emerged.
