International bachelor students
Because of the coronavirus, I can't work alongside my studies because my secondary job has stopped. I can't pay my tuition fees. What can I do?
DUO makes every effort to help you and will take your personal situation into account. At DUO, you can make use of the loan possibilities and increase your loan. If necessary, with retroactive effect from the beginning of the academic year. In addition, you can apply for a tuition credit. You can arrange this yourself via myDUO. If this is still insufficient, please contact DUO for a customised solution.
Is it still possible to get extra guidance from a student counsellor or student psychologist?
Yes, it is. Due to the measures related to the Corona virus, all appointments take place by telephone- or via Skype conferences. Check www.fontys.edu/fontyshelps

Where should I report if I'm infected with the Corona virus?
We would like to ask you urgently to report by telephone to your institute's business office. Mention whether you have been in contact with fellow students or whether you live in Fontys accommodation, for example. This report is also important if you are unexpectedly delayed in studying due to the Corona virus. Of course, you must also follow the rules of the GGD.
I am an international bachelor or master student and I want to go home. Is the situation around Corona a valid reason?
No it is not. Fontys is currently providing blended education, meaning you will be expected on campus for some of your classes. We do understand you might feel unsafe or worried about the Corona situation. We suggest you keep informed visiting the websites provided on www.fontys.edu/corona. If you do decide to return to your home country you need to inform your School/programme.
