Health Measures

Yes. We have taken every precaution to ensure that our community is safe on campus. As well as following official health guidelines, we have implemented additional health and safety measures for your safety. These include reduced class sizes, limited persons on campus, mandatory use of masks and hand sanitizers, frequent hand washing and temperature checking at our campus entrances, among others. 

Protect yourself and others from infection by washing your hands or using an alcohol-based rub frequently and not touching your face. Practice respiratory etiquette (for example, by coughing into a flexed elbow), wear a mask, avoid crowded places and maintain at least 1m distance from other people.  

This is the advice given by the World Health Organization. For more detailed information about the virus and how to prevent its spread, visit their webiste

We have plans in place to manage changes to the situation, keep students safe and make sure that the high-quality education we provide is not impacted. 

Stay home and self-isolate even with minor symptoms such as cough, headache, mild fever, until you recover. Have someone bring you supplies. If you need to leave your house, wear a mask to avoid infecting others.  

If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention, but call by telephone in advance if possible and follow the directions of your local health authority.  

This is the advice given by the World Health Organization. For more detailed information about the virus and how to prevent its spread, visit their webiste

Germany: The Federal Ministry of Health

To ensure the safety of its community, EU is implementing a series of precautionary measures across all its campuses.  

It is mandatory for faculty, students and staff to wear masks at all times when on campus. In addition, hand sanitizers will be placed at the entrances and throughout our campus buildings. 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 will be introduced at our campus entrances to ensure that all persons entering our premises are healthy.

When necessary, EU will introduce a blended learning approach. Class sizes will be reduced to ensure social distancing. The duration of classes on campus will be reduced to one to 1-1 ½ hours and the rest of the class will take place online.  

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. 

If you have further concerns about coming to campus or require more information on any of our measures, please do not hesitate our student counselors if you are a current student, or an admissions counselor if you will be new to the EU community. 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.

Digital Learning Support: In the Virtual Classroom

Classes in the virtual classroom take place on Adobe Connect. All EU students are advised to download Adobe Connect, Microsoft Teams for collaborative work and the Outlook app. During orientation week more guidance will be provided.

A Message From The President

I would like to reflect on the actions taken at EU Business School in the past weeks and offer you reassurance during these challenging times.

As a leading and responsible business school, we were ready. Since the beginning of March, we had taken the unprecedented decision to stop on-campus classes to allow our students to return home safely. Through the hard work of our community and with the support of our online campus, we successfully transitioned all our students to virtual classrooms.

We, as a global community will overcome this, and when we do, we will be there to welcome our students back onto campus. We will do so when we, a trusted institution, are sure that our campus provides a safe environment for all. Our main priority is, and will always be, to protect the health of our students, faculty, staff and stakeholders.

I would like to recognize the work of our management team, faculty and staff. Working together, their resilience, professionalism and dedication are helping us to move forward and overcome the daily challenges. This is making us stronger. For this, I would personally like to thank everyone.

I would also like to extend our gratitude to our remarkable students, who have shown themselves to be responsible and mature leaders in these challenging times. They have embraced the new learning dynamic, and we thank them for their contribution and participation. 

Finally, I also extend my thanks for the support I have received from you, our community. Your messages demonstrate that the values of EU reach beyond our campus borders: you form part of EU family. For this, I am proud and inspired.

I would like to conclude with a sense of optimism. We can and will overcome this together. My experience has taught me two things. The first is ‘This too shall pass’. The second is that societies learn valuable lessons from overcoming crises. I am looking forward to seeing what humanity can achieve when the worst is over.

As a grandfather, father, husband, colleague and friend, I send you all my very best wishes and, above all, ask you to stay safe!


Dr. Dirk Craen
President of EU Business School
