Health and safety on campus is our priority!
To ensure the health and safety of everybody on campus, EM Normandie Business School has put a system in place at the start of the 2020 academic year to prevent the spread of the virus, in accordance with the recommendations of government bodies. Measures are likely to change as official guidelines are updated.
The school requests that all members adhere strictly to the guidance, social distancing rules and barrier measures.
The school's 5 campuses will be open to students from 31 August 2021.
Anyone wishing to enter a campus will need to wear a mask that meets AFNOR standards.
Find the detailed instructions and the complete DRP on your student Intranet.
In accordance with the French Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation (MESRI) health guidelines, EM Normandie Business School has implemented its protocol starting from the 2020-2021 academic year.
In order to comply with social distancing rules, EM Normandie Business School has put in place a multimodal teaching system, which allows all students to attend the same lessons at the same time, either on site or remotely, with a teacher physically present in the room.
To implement this "twinning delivery" mode, the school has transformed its training rooms into “Flex Rooms” on its 5 campuses. These rooms are equipped with all the latest teaching technology, and can therefore be used for every possible scenario (face-to-face, remote or twinning). Students and professors can continue to have discussions and interact with each other, and benefit from the full teaching and learning experience.
- Wearing a mask complying with AFNOR standards is mandatory throughout your presence on campus
- Floor markings indicating one-way systems
- Health guidance displayed on site
- Compliance with distancing rules in reception and waiting areas
- Self-service antibacterial hand gel dispensers
- Paper towels instead of automatic hand dryers in toilets
- Water fountains may no longer be used
- Shared facilities (printers, microwaves, vending machines for drinks and snacks) must be cleaned by users after each use. Cleaning kits will be provided for this.
- Work and living areas shall be disinfected daily
- Premises shall be ventilated regularly
- Limited numbers of people in lifts depending on size
- Classrooms and workspaces shall be set up in accordance with social distancing guidelines
- Meetings shall take place remotely where possible
We must all comply with health guidance to reduce the risk of spreading the virus. This involves taking simple action, which includes:
- Washing your hands very regularly or using hand sanitiser
- Coughing or sneezing into your elbow or into a tissue
- Using tissues once and then throwing them away in the bins provided
- Greeting others without shaking hands, avoiding hugs and kisses
- Keeping a distance of at least 1 metre from other people
- Wearing a mask whenever you are in close proximity to others and on public transport
If you experience symptoms of COVID-19 (high temperature or feeling feverish, cough, breathing difficulties):
- Call your GP or a doctor for a teleconsultation
- Self-isolate at home
- If symptoms get worse and you start to experience breathing difficulties, call 15
If you are a confirmed case of COVID-19:
- Self-isolate at home
- Obtain a sick note from your GP
- Send evidence of this to your course leader
- If you have difficulty breathing, call 15
If you are an international student, you can benefit from the Airport pick-up upon registration with the International Affairs department! EM Normandie will arrange a shuttle to take you from the airport to your campus (contingent upon the number of registered students).
