The student association reports positively on its communication with the ministry for higher education, and announced new measures of support on Tuesday afternoon.

All students who had to prolong their studies due to the outbreak of Covid-19 will be eligible for additional financial support.

ACEL emphasised that every student is already able to benefit from two "extra" semesters of support, and that the additional funds can only be requested once those have run out. In that case, every student can get up to 1,000 euros more, an initiative that was welcomed by the student association.
