EMN-OECD Webinar: “Impact of COVID-19 on international students in EU and OECD Member States”

21 August 2020

Save the date!

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic and the substantial measures taken by EU and OECD countries to prevent the spread of the virus are having direct and indirect impacts on international students coming to those countries. 

While the long-term consequences are difficult to predict, the immediate impacts are already visible, for example, the processing of new applications or renewing of residence permits has in many cases been hindered or suspended, with consequences for international students already present in the host country.  In addition, the abrupt downturn in economic activity has had a significant impact across many sectors, with international students facing the loss of their part time jobs or reduced or lost incomes, which could have an impact on their ability to continue their studies or find a job or start a business following their graduation.

From the beginning of the outbreak, the EMN and the OECD have independently been monitoring how the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting migration in the EU and beyond, in order to provide information useful to governments and policy makers at all levels. EMN and OECD are now collaborating with DG HOME to address this most urgent agenda in the short and medium terms. Such a collaboration aims to generate synergies and avoid duplication of effort to address this issue.

This webinar will serve to launch the second EMN-OECD Inform on the impact of COVID-19 on international students in EU and OECD countries. 

Further information regarding the registration and agenda will follow in due course.
