The impact of COVID-19 on exchange students

In order to capture the experiences of students and trainees across Europe regarding the impact of COVID-19 on their mobility experience, the Erasmus Student Network (ESN) has written a research report on the topic. It builds on a survey in which 22,000 international students and trainees in Europe provided information about their experiences. The report aims to support policy-makers to make evidence-based decisions and alter communication in order to answer the major challenges students face during their exchange in foreign countries.

Overall 21.930 students currently on exchange in Europe filled in the survey, this map showcases the amount of respondents per country. Respondents went on exchange to more than 90 different countries, with 96.9% of respondents being on exchange in Erasmus+ Programme countries and 98.8% of respondents going to one of the 42 countries where the Erasmus Student Network is present and actively supports international exchange students.
