So the first school year ended in a COVID-19 pandemic and the second began.
Since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, the international education system has experienced a serious crisis.
In the spring of 2020, the authorities of European countries imposed certain restrictions on foreign students regarding the threat of spreading the virus. Most foreign higher education institutions have transferred online education by the end of the semester and have encouraged international students to leave their countries of study or stay at home.
However, with the start of the new academic year, the situation has improved and many countries have again allowed education in their Universities in a standard or mixed format.
In most German universities, education is currently conducted in a hybrid learning format – part of the classes on campus and part distance. International students who are in the process of obtaining a visa can start studying online and then continue on campus.
To enter Germany, a student must take a COVID test either 48 hours before departure or upon arrival in the country within three days. You can take tests at airports, local health departments, as well as in the offices of private doctors.
Students can enter Poland without observation if they have a COVID insurance policy. Education in Polish universities is currently in full-time.
Upon entering Slovakia, the student must take a PCR test for COVID-19 and spend 5 days in self-isolation, studying in Slovak universities is in the standard mode.
Upon arrival in the Czech Republic, students must pass a PCR test for COVID-19. If the result is negative, you do not need to self-isolate. Education at Czech Universities takes place in a standard format.
It will be a little harder for foreign students to get to Lithuania and Latvia. No later than three days before arrival in Lithuania, it will be necessary to test against COVID, and after crossing the border to spend 14 days in self-isolation. International students can study in Lithuanian universities both online and in the regular mode.
When entering Latvia, you must spend two weeks in self-isolation and then pass the COVID test. Education in Latvian universities is reflected in person, online and in a hybrid format.
To enter Hungary, a student must obtain a police permit and spend two weeks in quarantine, but if they pass two tests on arrival, which will be negative, they may not be self-isolated.
Studying in Hungary is possible both full-time and distance.
