Study at SBE during COVID-19
The School of Business and Economics welcomes you to campus after summer!
As of August, the Dutch government has announced that education can safely take place without a metre-and-a-half social distancing. Therefore, we are pleased to announce that, at the start of the new academic year, we expect all students on location for their education-related activities. On this page, we explain what education activities and introduction activities will look like at the School of Business and Economics as of September.
As mentioned in UM’s communication, education will take place on campus in Maastricht as of September 2021. We expect all students to be on-campus for educational related activities such as tutorials, lectures and exams.
We cannot predict what the exact situation will be in the Netherlands once the new academic year starts. There will probably still be some governmental safety regulations in place, such as the need to stay home when experiencing corona-related symptoms or travel restrictions that might not allow you to travel to Maastricht. In these exceptional cases, we will make sure that you can temporarily follow your tutorials and lectures online. We will provide you as soon as possible with more information on how to report these exceptional cases should they apply to you.
For the faculty introductions of the School of Business and Economics, this may mean that certain activities (particularly those with a large number of participants involved) might still take place online. You will receive the invite to the faculty introduction days in the second week of June. Please do not forget to register for the event so that you can take part in the proposed activities and meet your fellow students!
For the INKOM, all activities will be arranged in such a way that they can take place safely and responsibly within the rules and on location.
