Wageningen Graduate School PhD/Postdoc training

Home PhD PostDoc Staff

Measures Coronavirus (Covid-19), update July - 2021

We offer training sessions as stated in the training schedules below (in-person, online and blended), provided government guidelines permit this at that time.

We strictly adhere to the corona rules of Wageningen University and the Dutch government, safety and health are paramount. When the rules for training sessions change they will be posted on this website.

Self-tests form an addition to the existing measures on campus. We stress that the tests are taken voluntarily and are meant to identify infections rapidly to create a safe environment. The tests are provided by the government free of charge. You can order tests through the website: zelftestonderwijs.nl  from the beginning of May until August. If the applications exceed the offer, it may be that not all requests can be accepted. The self-test is not a replacement for the GGD test. More information for students and employees will follow as it becomes available. Check out the corona FAQ for more information.

On August 1 the option to order self-tests (via the site: www.zelftestonderwijs.nl) will expire. Instead, Higher Education will receive self-tests from the government/OCW for dissemination. These will be distributed by WUR itself from 1 August. There will be (self-service) containers for this at each WUR location. As soon as the inventory has been completed, we will inform you where these self-service bins will be placed.
