Impact of COVID19 on international students

How did the pandemic affect international students coming to the EU and OECD countries and how did states respond?

  • Some EU and OECD countries modified or adapted their admission processes at the national level, sometimes in cooperation with HEIs.
  • Many countries introduced temporary measures to mitigate the financial impact that COVID-19 is having on international students, for example by increasing maximum working hours, opening access to national funds or through financial programmes managed at the local or HEI level.

What other measures did countries take?
