Important information due to COVID - update 1 April 2021
What is it like to study at the Faculty of Economics and Business in September 2021?
We are looking forward to welcoming you to our campus. But, we all know times are still uncertain as COVID is still among us. With the (worldwide) vaccinations that are taking place, we are optimistic that brighter times will follow and new possibilities will arise. Keeping this in mind, we are already busy preparing for our next academic year.
The University of Groningen has announced that from September 2021 we no longer guarantee online education. This means that at the Faculty of Economics and Business (FEB) we expect that all students are present in Groningen. All, of course, depending on COVID developments and governmental guidelines. Nevertheless, we will do everything we can for you to make the most of your student experience at FEB.
On-campus education in September 2021
For the new academic year, very likely, it will be a mix of both online and offline education. So your education will be blended. We hope that small scale on-campus teaching and study activities will be possible. The assessment/testing, however, will be mostly done offline, depending on the type of test and the available facilities (capacity will be reduced if we still have to comply with the 1.5 meter distance restriction). Our faculty campus grounds will be open to students who wish to study or work together.
Again, please keep in mind that the way we offer education, on- or offline, might still depend on COVID-developments. We hope that the situation in September enables us to offer you an, albeit limited, on-campus student experience and that we can gradually return to a ‘normal’ situation.
If you are an international student and would like to know more about travel regulations to the Netherlands, we advise you to consult the government website ‘Travelling to the Netherlands’.
On the Coronavirus pandemic webpage you can find more information about the study start.
We hope to see you on campus in September!
