Global-MINDS and covid-19


We are witnessing unprecedented times with the Covid-19 outbreak. And we are aware that this raises a number of questions for current and prospective students in regard to how the pandemic may affect the Global-MINDS programme.

Following national health guidelines, the spring semester has been delivered online across all partner universities from March until the end of the semester. We are hoping that things can go back to normal for the fall semester. The declining infection rates in most partner countries indicate that this may indeed be the case.

Although we keep a positive outlook on this issue, there is always the possibility that things may change. If there is indeed a second outbreak, all partner universities are well prepared to adapt to that. It is our utmost priority to ensure the safety and protection of all students in this programme. We will always follow the national health guidelines for this and will support everyone in the best possible ways.

This is a very difficult issue for all universities worldwide right now. We are trying to make the best of it and are confident that together with our students we will succeed in doing so.
