The impact of Covid-19 on European higher education

EUA (2021). The impact of Covid-19 on European higher education. Brussels, Belgium.


To address the different sanitary measures required by different national governments, EUA conducted a snapshot survey of its national rectors’ conference members to create an overview of the continued impact of the pandemic on higher education institutions at the beginning of the academic year 2021/22. The survey focussed on education provision and practices regarding vaccination and testing.

All data is dated 14 October 2021. However, it must be stressed that the situation in many countries is reported to be changing quickly, in adaptation to the general course of the pandemic, and respective national or regional regulations. Several rectors’ conferences mentioned this when submitting the data.
