How does COVID-19 affect education for the 2021-2022 academic year?

RSM will offer blended learning, starting in September. That means you will study through a combination of online and on-campus activities. The activities will be livestreamed if you can’t join us in person. But you will get more out of your student experience and education if you are on campus. Therefore, we encourage all students to come to Rotterdam in September. You can read more about the policy for the academic year 2021-2022 here
