Update 23 March 2020
Referring to the announcement from the University, you should refrain from going outside of your residence, going to public places, or engaging in social contact with other people. This is extremely important if we are to limit the spread of this virus. Sasin’s work will continue for everyone as we are all just working from home instead of working from Sasin from 23 March until 12 April. If you have any concerns that you might have symptoms of COVID-19, please seek immediate medical attention (you can register for screening here) and contact Student Services/ HR for further advice.
