NHL Stenden guarantees first-year international students who cannot yet travel to the Netherlands, the opportunity of starting their English-taught bachelor or master programme online in September 2020.

As of 15 June, there will be a slight relaxation of the COVID-19 measures in place for Dutch higher education. From 1 September, we hope that measures will be further relaxed so that an increasing emphasis may be placed on on-campus education. A large proportion of education will still however be offered online. We cannot yet present specific information on the matter and we will continue to monitor and adhere to Dutch government policies.

NHL Stenden will warmly welcome international students in September and expects those who can safely travel on its campuses in the Netherlands. International students who are not yet able to travel because of, for instance, travel restrictions will be able to start their learning online with a view to arriving in the Netherlands as soon as they can.
