Exchange and COVID-19 mobility status

On this page you can find all information about your (Erasmus+) exchange and the mobility status in regard to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please select your faculty below for up to date information. At the bottom of this page you can find the FAQ.

General information (important)

  • Internships / exchange/ field work to countries or areas with code yellow/green (according to the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs) can continue. These colors can rapidly change due to the pandemic: a yellow country/region can suddenly change into a lock down situation with travel and/or education restrictions as a result.

    In January 2020 the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs offered help to those stuck abroad to come back to The Netherlands. Unlike then, they (and so is Erasmus University Rotterdam) will not offer that kind of help to those who decide to travel now.

    Students can apply for the Erasmus+ grant via the normal procedure. We will check the country color on the day of application. If the situation changes in the country after you have arrived, the Force Majeure rules will apply as implemented by the European Commission during the corona crisis.
     
  • Internships / exchange/ field work to countries or areas with code orange/red (according to the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs) are not allowed; only for essential reasons it is allowed to travel to a country with an orange code. Education is never essential in this case.

    There is an exception possible for international students who are already in their home country (or plan to travel there) and who wish to follow an exchange semester there. They have their social safety net there. These students should sign a statement beforehand (this statement is to be made yet).

    It should also be clear that EUR cannot do anything for those students if the situation gets worse. Important note: travel insurances are not valid in countries with an orange or red code, students should be very aware of that.  

    Students going to a country or area with code orange or red are not eligible for the Erasmus+ grant.

     
  • Students who would like to travel to Korea or Taiwan should estimate if the color codes may change. Travel preparations such as permit, flights etc. are at own risk.

  • Are you still at your partner institution? If you are following online courses, you can still receive the Erasmus+ Grant and follow the normal procedure for finalizing the grant once the semester is over. If you are no longer following courses, please contact us (erasmusplus@eur.nl) and explain why this is not possible.

  • Are you doing an internship abroad and can you continue your work either from location or from home? You can still receive your Erasmus+ grant and hand the Traineeship Agreement with the dates for the full period after your internship is over.

    Has your internship stopped due to the situation? Please contact us (erasmusplus@eur.nl) and indicate your last day of the internship and explain why you could not continue.

  • Will you start your exchange (study or internship) in the period April-June and are you not sure if you are able to start? Please wait with your application until the start date is clear. Starting your exchange online is not seen as part of the mobility.

  • Have you returned home earlier from your exchange, but are you continuing online courses from the partner institution? This is seen as a continuation of your exchange and you can receive your grant for this period as well. After this semester, please hand in your documents in Osiris. Ask the partner institution to fill in the Certificate of Attendance with the dates for the full period. Please also attach a confirmation (email or other) from the partner that you can only follow online courses.

    Have you returned home earlier from your exchange, but stopped your exchange and are you not following online courses? Please contact us (erasmusplus@eur.nl). Indicate the last day of your exchange and explain why you decided to not continue your exchange online.
