COVID-19 measures prospective students

The current situation limits international travel. However, we do advise you to proceed with your admission procedure since we expect the academic year to start as planned in 2021-2022 or slightly changed according to the situation. In the unlikely event that you've finished your admission procedure and would not be able to start next year, the BME programme will be flexible in terms of finding a solution!

Frequently asked questions

Will I be able to start the BME programme in September 2021?

Yes. The year will start as normal or delayed, depending on the partner. There might be some extra measures in place concerning social distancing if required. All students who applied for September 2020 have been able to start their academic year with a slight delay and with online classes.

Will the first 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, it will be possible to start remotely through online lectures.

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. Make sure to go via trusted websites if you are renting on the private market. After you are accepted to the programme, contact your relevant partner institution if you have any questions about this.


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.
