Following classes online

In order to alleviate the travel frequency of students abroad, the Academy offers online streaming of (most) theoretical classes (Foundation Weekends). Since the APS programme is built on the balance between theoretical and practical skills, there are also hands-on classes, which need to be attended in-person as a mandatory element in order to successfully graduate from the respective study year. Streaming of these classes will not be a possibility and students need to attend these. For all other classes, an agreement can be made with, so that they can follow a class through a livestream setup. Connecting with the teacher will then be possible before and after class. Please contact us if you want to know more.
