COVID-19 measures current students

The general rule is to follow the guidelines at your partner institution. Each institution has their way of handling the current situation so for more details, we would like to refer to the COVID-19 measures of each partner institution. This includes both instructions on an educational level and measures to guarantee a safe environment (health, hygiene, etc.).

Year 1          Year 2          Year 3

 

Year 1

  • The programme will be continued online and examination is expected to be organised online according to the regular timing.

  • All students should be able to finish their year in the normal timing, taking into account the progression to year two.

Transition to year 2

Will I be able to start my second year in September 2020?


Yes. The year will start as normal or slightly delayed, depending on the situation. There might be some extra measures in place concerning social distancing if required.




Will the second year start as usual, even if borders are still closed in September?


Yes. All BME partners are aiming to be physically back in business by September. In the very unlikely event that borders remain closed, they will do their best to start off remotely through online lectures. We will look for solutions in case this would not be 100% possible.




When should my student accommodation rental contract start if we are still unsure when we will be allowed to go abroad?


We advise you to start looking for accommodation online and assume you will be able to travel abroad by the start of the academic year. We advise to make use of official housing platforms provided. Current students are informed about this via the year 2 presentation and via email.





 
 

Year 2

  • All ongoing business practices will continue within the regular timing. In some exceptions, the business practice is delayed by one or two weeks. The business practice report will be uploaded online and the accompanying presentation will be via teleconference.

  • The (early) resit exams are organised in a hybrid fashion: both physical and online depending on the situation of each student individually.

  • All students should be able to finish their year in the normal timing, taking into account the progression to year three.

Transition to year 3

Don't wait too long to apply to your third-year partner. The sooner you apply, the sooner you can start to arrange things practically.

Will I lose any deposits I have paid to the third-year partner in case the academic year will not start due to COVID-19?


No. In the very unlikely event that our partner will cancel all courses, payments regarding tuition or administration fee will be reimbursed.




Will the third year start as usual, even if borders are still closed in September?


Yes. All BME partners are aiming to be physically back in business by September. In the very unlikely event that borders remain closed, they will do their best to start off remotely through online lectures. We will look for solutions in case this would not be 100% possible.




When should my student accommodation rental contract start if we are still unsure when we will be allowed to go abroad?


We advise you to start looking for accommodation online and assume you will be able to travel abroad by the start of the academic year. Current students are informed about the specifics for each partner institution via email.





Year 3

  • All ongoing courses will continue online.

  • All examination is organised digitally.

  • All students should be able to graduate from the BME programme within this academic year.

#BMEdegree

We want all our students to graduate as empathic and agile business professionals so you can rest assured that we approach this situation in a flexible, agile way and an empathic one as well. Our main priority is making it possible for all students to start, continue or finish their BME experience without having to compromise on the quality of the programme.

Feel free to share with fellow BME students how you are currently dealing with the situation on Instagram, tagging @bmedegree or using #BMEdegree. That way, we can remind ourselves that we're all in this together despite the social distancing.

The BME team is available for you via video call or email so do not hesitate to contact us if you have doubts, issues, or questions!

Stay home, stay safe.

"Throughout the BME programme I have learnt priceless life lessons, mastered adaptability, and gained contacts from all over the world. Also, it has been very fascinating to experience different teaching methods and to learn about different cultures."
