The spread of SARS-CoV-2 has forced universities worldwide to enhance their capacities and skills for distance learning. A programme such as EMGS faces particular challenges: not only do its students come from all world regions, but also its very essence is based on student and teacher mobility. To compensate for travel restrictions and to uphold the high quality of the programme during these challenging times, member universities are offering a variety of strategies.
All partner universities are moving temporarily from on-campus to online learning in order to secure academic continuity.
For the academic year 2022-2023, Ghent University expects most teaching to take place on campus (code green), possibly in combination with online teaching (hybrid teaching). For all information on Corona-related measures at Ghent University, please see: https://www.ugent.be/en/news-events/coronameasures.htm. For all information on Corona-policies in Belgium, see: https://www.info-coronavirus.be/en/
At the moment, it is planned to have classes offered in presence in the winter term 2022/23, as far as this is allowed and reasonable. Thus, we expect all students to come to Leipzig in the winter term. If students cannot come to Leipzig due to travel restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic, we will also organize a reduced offer of online courses.
For the 2022/2023 academic year, LSE plans to deliver lectures, classes, seminars, workshops and all related teaching and learning activities in person at the London campus.

Currently, there are no covid-19 related restrictions at Roskilde University anymore and therefore they plan the winter semester 2022 in person. For the latest information concerning that topic, please visit https://ruc.dk/en/corona-virus-covid19
Most of their teaching in the winter term 2022/2023 takes place on site to promote personal exchange. Additionally, they have marked digital and hybrid courses at https://ufind.univie.ac.at/de/index.html. However, there may be changes at short notice due to COVID-19 (e.g. individual appointments digitally).

In winter semester 2022/23, University of Wroclaw will offer classroom teaching with the option to switch to hybrid teaching should it be necessary due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The didactic activity (lectures, seminars, workshops, etc.) during the summer semester 2021 at University of Wroclaw was provided in a completely remote formula (Microsoft Teams). Students were also given the opportunity to take part in Orientation Days, a preparatory Polish language course, a semester Polish language course, as well as other online foreign language courses. In addition, University of Wroclaw provided online lectures and workshops with the participation of foreign experts (including the European Union Institute for Security Studies in Paris, the European Security and Defense College in Brussels). The students furthermore took part in an online visit to the European Commission on a CISCO WEBEX platform in the area of migration and forced displacement. The local EMGS office in Wroclaw was in constant contact with the students.
