Bus strike on 19 and 20 January: Avans classes go ahead as normal

On Thursday 19 and Friday 20 January, a strike by regional public transport operators, including bus company Arriva, means that fewer bus services will be available throughout the Netherlands. It is still unclear how many workers will take part in the strike and exactly how widespread the disruption will be. Train services operated by NS Dutch Railways will run as normal on these dates. Despite the strike, it has been decided that educational activities at Avans University of Applied Sciences will proceed as scheduled.

Alternative transport

The Executive Board advises students and staff who normally come to Avans by bus to find alternative transport or make other arrangements.

Practical solution

In the unlikely event that assessments or classes cannot go ahead due to the strike, the study programmes themselves will offer a practical solution. In that case, students and staff will be given due notification by their own programme.
