To ensure the safety of its community, EU has implemented a series of strict precautionary measures across all its campuses.

It is mandatory for faculty, students, staff and visitors to wear masks at all times when on campus. In addition, hand sanitizers have been placed at the entrances and throughout our campus buildings. Their use is obligatory. Students and faculty are required to hand sanitize before a class begins and after a break and to use regularly throughout the day. In addition, temperature checks have been introduced at our campus entrances to ensure that all persons entering our premises are healthy, common areas closed and distancing measures introduced. We also have a campus doctor on all our campuses whom students can consult if they are showing COVID-19 symptoms.

For on-campus study in fall 2020, EU will introduce an innovative on-campus hybrid learning approach. Class sizes will be reduced for social distancing.

Our recreation areas, study rooms and libraries will be closed. Student gatherings and meetings will not be permitted on campus nor in the vicinity of our campus buildings. Furthermore, students will be advised not to meet in groups outside our premises. Group work will also take place online.

Please contact them by phone, email or Skype. They will happily offer you all the advice you need.  

Health insurance is obligatory for all students studying at EU Business School.  

If you are a student from the European Union, you may wish to contract private health insurance or to transfer the health insurance from the social security of your country of residence (S1).  

If you are a student from outside the European Union, embassies and/or consulates will require proof of private health insurance before granting you a visa. Your health insurance will need to cover any medical and/or repatriation expenses you may incur during your studies at EU. Please reach out to our admissions counselors who will advise you on private health insurance.

Please note that an English-speaking doctor is available on all our campuses for online consultation for students who are showing COVID-19 symptoms.

A Message From The President

Looking beyond the festive break, we are thrilled to be welcoming more students to our EU Community in January 2021, and welcoming back those already studying with us.

Since we returned to campus, our innovative on-campus hybrid learning approach, which combines the best of in-person and online learning, has enabled our community to continue their studies in a safe environment. From January on, I am delighted to inform that, guided by how the pandemic progresses in each campus city, the number of hours spent in the classroom will increase.

The safety of our community will always be our top priority. We continue to have extensive measures in place across our campuses to ensure a safe environment for our community. These measures include temperature checks at the entrances of each of our campuses, protective screens, hand-sanitizer dispensers placed throughout our campus buildings and reduced class sizes to ensure that social distancing can always be adhered to.

Experiential and interactive learning is a hallmark of EU Business School, and we have continued to deliver this experience since the start of the global health crisis. I am thrilled to share that our exclusive Learning From Leaders conferences with top business leaders will continue in the new year with yet more outstanding names joining us to share their experiences and invaluable insights with our students and alumni.

We are proud to have developed these strategies to enable us all to move forward with positivity. We believe that no one should have to put their education, or their dreams, on hold, and we are thrilled to be enabling the next generation of leaders to reach their full academic and professional potential.

Thank you to our students, alumni, faculty and staff, all of whom have shown remarkable resilience in the face of these challenging times. It is our pleasure to be guardians of such a supportive and inspiring community.

Dr. Dirk Craen

President of EU Business School
