Rector Joke van Saane: "Of course we will take a good look at this, together with the teachers and students. The past two years have not been the easiest; the constant switching between the lockdowns has demanded a lot from us. I am very happy with the openness and appreciation of the students, and the involvement and commitment of our lecturers."
