COVID 19 Distance Learning Survey

How is distance learning going so far? What needs to be improved? We, as your elected student representatives want to ensure that this semester, even with the limitations, can still be without negative effects for you. We therefore ask you for your feedback on the distance learning, which we will forward to the program coordinators.

Take part in our Survey!
