ESN Research Report on the Impact of COVID-19 on Student Exchanges in Europe

The Erasmus Student Network (ESN) has conducted the largest research on the impact of the COVID-19 virus outbreak on student exchanges in Europe.

By now, it is clear that the COVID-19 virus has had such an effect that it disrupts many aspects of our societies in Europe, and even worldwide. One group facing big problems is international students whose studies have in many cases been canceled, interrupted, or delayed, which was discussed during a webinar with the European Commission on March 20, 2020.

To capture the experiences of students and interns across Europe regarding the impact of COVID-19 on their mobility experiences, ESN wrote a report on the topic. The report is based on a survey of 22,000 international students and interns in Europe who provided information on their experiences.
