We follow the travel advice of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Study-related trips are possible only when the travel advice is code green or yellow. At code orange or red, no travel is allowed. This also applies to internships, exchanges and fieldwork.
In some cases, an exemption can be made so that you can still take a study component abroad if the travel advice to go abroad is negative. The faculty board or the assessment committee is authorised to grant exemptions.
Read more about travelling and exchange on the student website.
Travelling for private purposes is your own responsibility, where it is important that you adhere to the guidelines of the Dutch government and the country you are going to. We advise you to consult the website of the Dutch Government for up-to-date information.
Please keep the following in mind: if it turns out that corona measures require you to stay abroad longer, this may affect your studies. For questions about your study programme or study delay, please contact your faculty student desk.
For employees on a business trip on behalf of the UU, the UU has collective travel insurance. The conditions for the coverage of this insurance and more information about it can be found on intranet (with login).
Travelling for private purposes is your own responsibility, where it is important that you adhere to the guidelines of the Dutch government and the country you are going to. If it turns out that you have to stay longer in your holiday country due to corona measures, the following applies;
- Are you going to a country with a green or yellow travel advice and does the travel advice change colour during your trip (to orange or red)? If so, you may have to stay longer in your holiday country or may not be able to travel back as planned. If it is not possible to work on location or if there are no other alternatives to catch up with the work, your wages will continue to be paid because you went on holiday when the country still had travel advice code green or yellow.
- Are you going to a country with orange travel advice? Then you may have to stay longer in your holiday country or you may not be able to travel back as planned. Is it not possible to work on location or are there no other alternatives to catch up? Then you are not entitled to continued payment of wages or you are taking holidays.
- If you fall ill on holiday, the normal rules apply. You must report sick as usual. Read more about reporting sick on the intranet.
