Corona update: 17 April | students and staff

Dear colleagues and students,  

First and foremost, we hope you and your loved ones are in good health. We sympathise with the students that find themselves far away from their family and friends, have temporarily lost their income and are therefore in a difficult financial position. For teachers and staff, transitioning to online education and working from home presents its own complications. We cannot stress enough how much we appreciate all of your efforts, flexibility and positive attitude. Thank you for your commitment.  

We are all of course eagerly anticipating the advice of the government with regards to the upcoming period, but at the same time we all know that social distancing will remain a part of our everyday life for some time to come.  

As a safety measure, we are keeping distance from one another and going outside when possible and wise. There will most likely be days when the walls are closing in on us. Please stay in contact with each other and with us and let us know where we can help. Now that the days and weeks in quarantine are adding up, it is more important than ever to keep doing this together.   

We informed you earlier that we would let you know mid-April how we are going to handle the exams and final exams (Bachelor 4 and Master 2). At this moment, we are finalising these procedures in coordination with the Education Committee, the Exam Board, the coordinators, heads of departments and staff. Wednesday April 20 at the latest we will inform both students and teaching staff about the way in which all examination will take place.  

We do understand that your patience, and in particular those of the graduates, is tested for a little while longer, but in this extraordinary situation, we need to proceed very carefully remembering that everyone’s safety is our main priority. We are counting on your understanding and will do our utmost to give all Ba-4 and Ma-2 students a chance on having a good completion of their education at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam. 

We wish you strength and have a wonderful weekend. Stay strong and keep your distance but be sure to keep in touch (online)!  

All the best,  
Janneke van der Wijk

From 4 May we will no longer use private e-mail addresses

Currently everyone receives messages related to the corona crisis on both their AHK and private email address. However, in the week of 4 May we will only use the AHK e-mail addresses for messages from the Conservatorium van Amsterdam.

Besides, the AHK recently decided to stop emailing to private email addresses. So to stay fully informed it is therefore important that all students, teachers and staff members start using their AHK e-mail address from 4 May or have their e-mail automatically forwarded to their private e-mail address. 

Forwarding your AHK e-mail to your private e-mail address: Watch our video with instruction here and follow the steps.

Only the sections Jazz and Classical music within Muziekweb are available for us. Unfortunately Pop music is excluded because of copyright matters.
