What does ESN recommend?

  • The semester starts on the 28th of September. In a quarantine you will be for a minimum of 5 days, however, you can wait up to several days for your negative test results to come. That is why we recommend you to come to Slovakia and start your quarantine at least 14 days before school starts. If everything works out and you will get through everything sooner, you will have at least one week before the school starts to finally freely start to enjoy Banská Bystrica and your Erasmus.
  • Please keep in mind that the restrictions can change every day. We understand that it can be frustrating but remember, once we get through everything and be sure that together we WILL the best time of your life-Erasmus- will start and believe us, it’s gonna be so worth it.
  • In case of any doubt, contact your buddy who is always ready to help you and keep you updated!
