Student matters

Previously, the entire student community was informed through Neptun messages and Rector Circulars.


As a rector, I order the refusal to visit college buildings, real estate, and internships for students who have been in the coronavirus area after February 12, 2020, or have met people in the coronavirus area prior to their meeting for two weeks, possibly living with such a person in the same household. The prohibition on visiting students is for 14 days, starting from the day the student or a person living with him / her comes home from the infected area or when the student has been in contact with another person. Students are not disadvantaged in the event of justified absences, and absenteeism is treated flexibly, so students are requested to inform the Study Departments by email or telephone of the date of departure from the area and the name of the area. The Study Departments shall send information to the Rector through the Director of Education.
