Coronavirus: information for international students

We have created this page for all VU international students and anyone working with international students.

With new developments in the international COVID-19 health crisis occurring each day, we want to make sure we can keep you informed and provide you with as much clarity and assistance as possible. Our main aim is to offer answers to the most frequently asked questions per target group and to make it clear to which department and services you can turn. We will regularly update this website.

As you can imagine, this is also an unprecedented situation for us. We know that for you as international students, these circumstances have an impact on you on many different levels. Please rest assured that you are not alone in this and that we are doing our utmost to support you. And should you have any suggestions or feedback as to how we can improve our service and communication to you, please do not hesitate to let us know at
