On 29 May, the vice-chancellor decided to cancel all exchange studies in the autumn of 2020, for both incoming and outgoing exchange students. The International Office is in contact with students who have been nominated and it may be possible to delay your exchange studies until the spring of 2021 (but not until the autumn of 2021).
Placements and field studies for outgoing students are cancelled as long as the Ministry for Foreign Affairs advises against all non-essential foreign travel. After this, as usual, foreign placements or field studies in countries to which the Ministry for Foreign Affairs advises against travel cannot begin or be granted.
In the spring semester of 2021, exchange studies, field studies and placements may be undertaken in countries that are excluded from the Ministry for Foreign Affairs’ advisories against non-essential travel. Exchanges and travel to countries for which the Ministry advises against non-essential travel will not be granted. Exceptions may be made in exceptional circumstances. Please contact our international officers if you have questions about your exchange studies.
