Two UM students share their experience living through the corona crisis in South Africa

 Jens de Baat Doelman and Christopher Winters, two students from Maastricht University's School of Business and Economics (SBE) were spending this semester abroad in South Africa when the corona crisis hit. As international borders started to close and concerns for their safety grew, they eventually made the difficult decision to return to their homes in Germany; however, this turned out to be a lot more difficult than expected.

In this article, Jens and Chris share with us their experience living through the corona crisis in South Africa and show us how they were able to make the best of a difficult situation.
