    Dear student, colleague, partner university or anyone else interested in the Fontys summer school,

    Due to the effects of Covid-19 and the associated global measures that have been taken, we as the organization of the summer school, cannot guarantee that the summer school will take place in the summer of 2021. We do our best to make the summer school program fit within the measures and continue to look at what is possible. We advise you to visit this page regularly to see if there are any new updates and if you have any questions, please send an email to: summerschool040@fontys.nl

    Thanks for your understanding and hopefully till next summer!

    Stay safe! Team summer school.

    Dear students,

    After careful consideration due to the Coronavirus situation and our aim to provide students with a valuable learning and personal development experience we regret to have to inform you of the decision to cancel the summer school of 2020.

    It is irresponsible at the moment to have students fly internationally and the challenge of a group of students to keep to the social distance requirements of 1.5 meters in the educational and social cultural programme is not workable yet. Our strength in personal development, making new contacts and cultural experiences can't be maintained.

    We have decided to improve these values and are already working hard to a successful intake for the summer of 2021 when we have more knowledge and experience within the guidelines of International Education.

    We hope you understand the difficult decision we had to make and are looking forward to seeing you next year at our summer school in Eindhoven. Together we will then make the best out of our summer.

    Take care and stay safe!
    The summer school team.

    PS: We would like to think along with you about the challenges we face as a summer school within the new measures. Do you happen to have a good idea’s and would you like to share it with us? Please send an email to summerschool040@fontys.nl

    Update – 31 March 2020

    As written on the homepage, the Fontys Summer School will continue to take place on the planned date. Last week our government decided that online education is extended till the 1st of June. The situation after the 1st of June is not clear yet. We decided to move the deadline for application for the summer school to the 19th of June. This way we all have more time to monitor the Covid-19 situation. Safety and health is our first priority and we want students from all over the world to have more time to decide what is best for them.

    The deadline of payment of the tuition fee and housing is moved to the 29th of June. After that students can book their flight and arrange their visa if necessary. In the unfortunate event that we are not able to offer courses due to new, tightened national regulations after the 29th of June, you will receive a full refund of your payment.

    We will continue to closely monitor the situation. Please keep checking our website for more updates. Other Fontys updates and information about exchange and traveling according to the COVID-19 virus can be found here.

    Please, send an e-mail to summerschool040@fontys.nl if you wish to withdraw from the course due to COVID-19 regulations. Should you have any questions or comments let us know by e-mail.

    Hopefully we will meet each other and make the most of our summer together!

    Very best wishes, Fontys Summer School team.
