Why 75 students in a lecture hall?


Why are only 75 students allowed in a lecture hall, regardless of the size of the room? In the corona debate on Tuesday 16 November in the Dutch parliament, there was only a brief mention of higher education when outgoing Prime Minister Mark Rutte explained the decision to re-introduce a group cap in vocational education (mbo) and higher education. Rutte said that there are now a great many students who follow one of these forms of education: more than a million. “You don’t really want to impose any restrictions on them. But to reduce the risk there, we have said: the larger lectures are not allowed for now, at least until that maximum.”


Next week, the government will send a bill to parliament to enable the rapid introduction of a corona pass in higher education without interference from the participation councils. During the corona debate, the parliamentarians hardly anticipated this. (HOP, Bas Belleman)
