We are committed to providing a safe environment for our community by adhering to and often going above and beyond local government regulations. We also have the flexibility to close our campuses and move activities online should the crisis escalate again.

To ensure we are all adhering to the same guidelines, you will be invited to complete a COVID-19 awareness module, followed by a short quiz and signing the INSEAD Community Commitment. A personal e-mail will be sent to you before your arrival on campus allowing you to complete the requirements including the campus specific measures. 

Completing the awareness module, taking the short quiz, and signing the INSEAD Community Commitment must be completed before accessing any of our campuses, and a RT-PCR test is required for access to our Abu Dhabi and Fontainebleau campuses. You must await your RT-PCR test results before accessing campus. Only exception will be to come on campus for testing.

We have met liaised with the Student Council, GEMBA Student Representatives about the process and have incorporated their feedback into the safety measures and specifics around processes. Thank you to these student leaders for your thoughtful comments and ideas.

For the GEMBA/TIEMBA participants we already have had the pleasure of seeing back on campus for in-person teaching, we will invite you to complete the entire module once it is finalized even if you already completed the INSEAD Community Commitment for re-entry. For those of you remaining or coming to Fontainebleau, we remind you to do the RT-PCR test.

In Singapore masks continue to be mandatory when people go outside their homes. Likewise, mask wearing will be required, except when eating and drinking, on the Asia campus.  

Download the TraceTogether App. 

Testing will only happen if prescribed by a doctor or mandated by government. Testing prior to arriving on campus will not be required.

What should students do before entering the Europe Campus?

  • Download and activate the TousAntiCovid app.
  • If you are not fully vaccinated, it is highly recommended to carry out a RT-PCR test before coming on campus. The test must be taken preferably less than 72 hours (but never more than 96 hours) prior to accessing campus. Go to insead.synlab.fr to book yours.
  • Please refer to this French Government website to verify the travel requirements before you arrive in France.
  • Please also read the INSEAD Safety Guidelines.
  • For any questions, you can contact [email protected]

In Abu Dhabi masks continue to be mandatory when people go outside their homes. Likewise, mask wearing will be required, except when eating and drinking, on the Middle East campus.

A negative RT-PCR test result is mandatory for all students/participants before they can access the INSEAD Middle East campus. The test must be taken preferably less than 72 hours (but never more than 96 hours) prior to accessing the campus. Please also note that re-testing is mandatory during a programme if its duration is longer than 7 days. It will be required weekly or half-way in the programme for all people on campus, ensuring there is only a maximum of 7 days between the first and second test. 

Your partner is welcome on campus provided they complete the same requirements as for our student population. Should they wish to come, they must send an e-mail to Asia [email protected] / Europe [email protected] and they will receive information on the required steps to take prior to arriving on campus.  

Further information on COVID-19 Student/Participant Policies will be circulated early in the week commencing 31 August 2020.

We have heard from a number of US schools that they will be delivering purely online or with very limited engagement on campus.  We do not want this to happen because of reasons that are under our own control. This means being vigilant about wearing a mask and social distancing both on-campus as well as off-campus, too. This is a delicate situation and we can only deliver in-person teaching and allow access to campus if everyone follows the rules.  I know it is not ideal, but it is our best chance to be one of the few business schools open and allowing our community members to engage in-person.  

Please contact [email protected] if you have any further questions or need clarifications.
