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 the RIVM (National Institute for Public Health and the Environment):
MSM reserves the right to cancel on-campus teaching for upcoming intakes as long as the current lockdown remains in place. In addition, in case of strict national regulations after the lockdown which prohibit on-campus teaching or do not allow students to travel to the Netherlands, MSM reserves the right to cancel on-campus teaching. In such an event, we will inform all applicants about the consequences for the specific intake via e-mail 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.
