FAQ Health

How does corona affect my studies the upcoming schoolyear?

For many students, the first period of their studies will be different than it would usually be. Every school in Rotterdam has taken corona measures. You are probably excited to meet your new fellow-students and teachers in person, but the introduction events are likely to have a different format and meetings and classes are likely to be held online. Check the website of your school/university to get to know about the specific corona policy that applies to you.
