COVID-19 international impact
Updates on Johns Hopkins University's Study Abroad program, operations at SAIS Nanjing and SAIS Europe, and the immigration implications of the global coronavirus outbreak
Last updated March 25, 2:30 p.m.
In light of recent developments with the spread of COVID-19, Johns Hopkins University has suspended undergraduate participation in spring 2020 study abroad programs worldwide, and some summer 2020 programs abroad have also been suspended.
Two overseas campuses of the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies have adapted their operations to move online, allowing students to continue their studies remotely. SAIS Europe, located in Bologna, Italy, is in the process of moving all courses online. Graduate students enrolled in programs at SAIS Europe, including those in the BA/MA dual degree programs, have the option to remain in Italy, although courses will be broadcast online to accommodate students who choose to leave.
The Hopkins-Nanjing Center, which is run jointly by Johns Hopkins SAIS and Nanjing University, moved courses entirely online at the start of the spring semester in February. The campus is located about 330 miles from Wuhan City in Hubei province, the epicenter of the initial coronavirus outbreak.
The Office of International Services has compiled a comprehensive Q&A to help address questions related to international travel and travel restrictions..
