Outgoing exchange students

My partner university only offers online classes for Fall 2020.
If you wish to participate in online classes your partner university offers you can choose to do so but it is advisable to discuss this with your Coordinator Internationalisation. You may have to resubmit your Learning Agreement. Otherwise, please contact your coordinator Internationalisation to discuss your options.

My international study/internship will start soon, how do I know it is safe to go abroad?
You will only be allowed to travel abroad if the travel advice from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is green or yellow. Make sure you keep yourself informed and contact your coordinator Internationalisation to discuss your options.

I want to study abroad in the fall semester 2020. Is that allowed?
Yes, you are allowed to travel abroad in the fall semester 2020 - provided that the exit restrictions allow this. For this, the travel advice of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is leading. You choose an educational offer based on the possibilities at the partner institutions. This may mean that one student will eventually be able to travel to the chosen destination and another student will not. We therefore ask you to make your own assessment and, based on this, also take a 'plan B' into account.

I have registered for a minor Study Abroad for Fall 2020. Can I continue my preparations?
Yes, you can continue your preparations. However, please be aware that the current situation is still uncertain and you will only be allowed to travel to your partner university if the travel advice from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is green or yellow. If you have any questions or wish to discuss your options for Fall 2020, please contact your coordinator Internationalisation.

I have registered for a minor Study Abroad Fall 2020 but want to cancel and keep my options open for Spring 2021.
If you are thinking about cancelling your minor Study Abroad and reapplying for Spring 2021 please contact your coordinator Internationalisation (for Fontys School partner universities) or Team Study Abroad (for Fontys-wide partners) to discuss the situation. 

I am currently abroad for a minor or internship. What should I do?
Fontys urgently asks all students to return to the Netherlands as soon as possible. Please take into consideration it’s possible that the situation caused by the Corona Covid-19 virus is going to take longer than a few weeks, potentially months and consider the consequences this can have for you; for your visa, your study or internship progress, your financial, social, and personal situation. It might not be possible or easy to return to the Netherlands, due to potential travel restrictions or other situations. This will be different for every student. Fontys would like to support you in looking for solutions as much as possible. Please contact your coordinator Internationalisation your coordinator Internationalisation.
