Hybrid NUflex is a flexible teaching model that allows you to study from your home country, a classroom, or your home, whichever is best for you. In addition, we have prepared our campus by implementing an extensive COVID-19 viral testing and contact tracing program, which will continue through the 2020-2021 academic year.
