The University has taken to consideration there will be a weekly COVID-19 test, this will be done in order to protect the safety of other students and staff members against the COVID-19 virus.

For those who cannot take the COVID-19 Vaccination for serious medical reasons an allowance for an exemption application process has been made by the university.
