Covid-19: Information

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, the safety of the members of the ESSEC community has been our first priority. Despite the unprecedented nature of the situation, we have ensured the continuity of our activities. ESSEC continues to constantly adapt its response to the Covid-19 epidemic, in accordance with the recommendations of authorities.  

As a reminder, wearing a mask is mandatory on all of our campuses.

  • On our campuses in France:

Like many European countries, France is facing a strong increase in cases of Covid-19 positive cases since early November. It is therefore important to remain vigilant and to scrupulously respect the public health measures, i.e. wearing a mask on all occasions except during meals, regular hand washing, social distancing (1 meter with the mask, 2 meters during meals), and regular ventilation of the rooms by opening the windows, when they are equipped. CO2 sensors and air purifiers have been installed according to the type of room in Cergy and La Défense.

  • On our ESSEC Asia-Pacific campus in Singapore:

For the Academic Year 2021-2022, all classes are to be held on campus, where possible. Remote access to online learning continues to be provided to students who are unable to attend classes in person. All students in Singapore are now able to receive the vaccination for free at any Vaccination Centre, polyclinic or participating Public Health Preparedness Clinics to get their first dose without the need for an appointment. The locations can be found at

  • On our ESSEC Africa campus in Rabat, Morocco:

The first day of the academic year at ESSEC Africa Campus was October 1st, 2021. We recommend that all students who have to join the ESSEC Africa Campus from a country other than Morocco to check the conditions of access to the Moroccan territory from their country of origin.
