On this page, we would like to inform you about the current COVID-19 crisis. Please check the information below. For all Summer School related questions, take a look at our Frequently Asked Questions page.

Our 2021 Summer School 

As you might know, like other countries in Europe, The Netherlands is taking action to cope with the spread of the virus. The Utrecht Summer School is still in business but all of the team members are working from home. We cannot be reached by phone but you can always send us a message via our support page

We hope and expect that some of our Summer School courses in July and August 2021 will be able to take place on location. Apart from that, we are very happy to inform you that several of our courses will be offered in an online format, which means that regardless of the restrictions, you are able to join our Summer School this year. 

There are currently three formats, clearly mentioned in each individual course description:

1. The course is only offered on location;

2. The course is only offered online;

3. The course is currently designed on location, but with an online safety plan, in case we cannot welcome you to Utrecht. 

If you are interested in a course, but the format is not clear to you, please contact us via the support page. 

Summer School courses outside Utrecht

In case you have applied or wish to apply for one of our tracks taking place outside Utrecht, different COVID-19 regulations might apply. We will closely monitor the situation regarding the COVID-19 outbreak. 

For students who are not allowed to travel to the foreign destination, the Utrecht Summer School will arrange a substitute course, in line with the content of the track if possible. This adjustment to the track will be communicated to registered students in Spring 2021.

Cancellation policy

If the format of courses change or if courses are cancelled, we will inform all applicants accordingly via email. In the unfortunate event that we are not able to offer our courses face-to-face due to new, tightened national regulations, most of our courses will be moved online.

If you cannot or do not wish to participate in this online course, you can decide to receive:

1. A full refund;
2. A voucher for the Utrecht Summer School 2021.

* This voucher is for the summer course which you originally applied for. However, if you wish to sign up for a different course during the summer of 2022, please contact us to discuss the possibilities. 

If The Utrecht Summer School cannot offer the course you registered for, the above options (refund or voucher) are also applicable. 

In order to administer your choice, please, write to if you wish to receive a voucher or refund.

If the course is already offered in an online format, and you wish to cancel your enrolment, the regular Terms and Conditions are applicable. Please take a look before applying for a course. 

Stay safe, stay healthy!
