ESSEC Asia-Pacific: Information about the new academic year

We look forward to welcoming you back to the ESSEC APAC campus for the start of the new academic year from 24 Aug 2020. 

Given the current travel situation, it is likely that many of our students or participants would be starting the courses online. We will share with you more information about specific numbers in class closer to the start of the program.

All courses will be taught from campus by faculty and external lecturers. On campuses, classrooms are set up to facilitate "dual teaching" courses with adapted equipment that is easy to handle. Nine classrooms have been equipped to allow faculty members and external lecturers to give their classes via video conferencing. The campus is also equipped with a recording studio. It provides good quality audio and video capture devices, lighting, and green screen to facilitate post production.

ESSEC’s Covid-19 Protocol - At Campus Entry

Before entering the campus premises, please proceed directly to the security station located outside of the main lobby entrance at Level 3 to take your temperature first. Anyone with fever, flu-like, respiratory symptoms will be denied entry.

  • Please scan the QR code for “SafeEntry” that will be displayed at the security station. You will be prompted to a designated URL to enter your official name, NRIC/FIN number and mobile number to “check-in”. Upon successful check-in, please show your Check-in mobile screen to the security officer before you enter the premises.
  • When you leave the premises, please remember to “check-out” from the SafeEntry URL/QR code.
