the government maintains its previous measures issued during the health emergency; therefore, the spring semester of the Academic Year 2020/2021 begins in the same educational order as the fall semester ended.
Pursuant to Paragraph 14 of Government Decree no. 484/2020 (XI. 10.) on the second phase of protection measures in the event of an emergency, as a matter of principle, ‘education shall be continued within the framework of digital education’, meaning that education will basically continue online (in absentia) in the new semester.
The Government Decree referred hereinabove allows the Minister to grant an exemption from digital (online) education in justified cases (i.e in the case of courses, practices or examinations that can only be held in attendance). Thus, in the case of certain subjects/examinations, education with physical presence may exceptionally take place (similarly to the previous semester). You will be informed about this by the competent Faculty.
Should the government provide for the easing or termination of restrictions during the semester, we will provide information on the educational order that may change as a result.
