MSM Board takes additional measures to help control the spread of Corona virus


The MSM board has taken additional measures according to the new Covid-19 restrictions as announced by the Dutch Government on Monday 14 December 2020. Any extensions or new Covid-19 measures will be announced by the Dutch government on 12 January 2021.

Following additional measures will be effective as of Wednesday 15 December 2020:

  • The MSM building will close until 19 January 2021.
  • All students are requested to stay at home. All courses will take place online.
  • The students who arranged a flight to start their program at MSM on 4 January 2021, are advised to look into the possibilities to postpone their flights.
  • For the MSM full-time residential students who are in the Netherlands during the winter break, MSM has shared some information of online activities organized via various student organizations in Maastricht. This way they can connect and get to know other international students in a similar situation.

Monitoring of situation
The MSM Board will continuously monitor the situation around the Corona virus, and will initiate further actions when needed. The internal task force that has been established to protect the health of MSM’s faculty, staff and students will provide regular updates about the situation.

MSM will need to remain flexible to respond to any changes that may be required to our placements. We will continue to closely monitor developments and take necessary action in line with the latest government advice, along with guidance from RIVM (National Institute for Public Health and the Environment): RIVM guidelines.

MSM reserves the right to cancel on-campus teaching in the unfortunate event of new, tightened national regulations, or if students are not allowed to travel to the Netherlands. In such an event, we will inform all applicants about the consequences for the October and/or January intake via email as soon as possible.

Please ensure that you purchase travel cancellation insurance and only make travel and accommodation bookings that are fully refundable in case of changes or cancellations. 

Please note that MSM cannot reimburse any expenses incurred beyond fees explicitly paid!.
