Yes, the situation can change if the Goverment‘s decision changes.
You do not need to upload the document itself. You must declare possession of an immunization document no later than one hour until the first contact academic class in the University‘s Academic Information System. In the “Declaration” section, you must confirm the information by choosing the type of document, which you can show, if necessary, as proof that you meet at least one of the criteria for participation in contact activities.
You cannot go to contact lectures until you have a necessary document, for this reason:
A) You should wait for the opportunity passport to take effect, in the meantime discuss with the lecturer on the lecture material and study remotely, try to catch up with the course friends as soon as possible after returning to studies. If there were assessments during the period you studied remotely, then you should settle them as soon as possible when you return. Missed assessments will be justified, as in the case of illness.
B) You can participate in contact sessions, testing no earlier than every 48 hours until the scheduled lecture. According to the Government’s decision of 31 August, 2021, students who have been partially vaccinated (who have the first dose of EU certified Comirnaty, Spikevax or Vaxzevria vaccine) and who want to take part in the study process on campus will be granted a transitional period – PCR* tests will be free of charge until 15 October. Students can register for a free PCR test by calling 1808.
The University follows a Government resolution stating that the test must be taken no earlier than 48 hours in advance until the scheduled lecture on-campus.
We inform you that according to the Government’s decision of 31 August, 2021, students who have been partially vaccinated (who have the first dose of EU certified Comirnaty, Spikevax or Vaxzevria vaccine) and who want to take part in the study process on campus will be granted a transitional period – PCR* tests will be free of charge until 15 October. Students can register for a free PCR test by calling 1808.
If the resolution is changed or there are facilitations for higher education institutions, the University will apply other requirements depending on the changes in the resolution.
According to the Government resolution, distance learning classes for students who do not meet at least one of the immunization criteria will not be carried out, except for theoretical lectures, for which more than 30 students are registered in the schedule subsystem of the University‘s Academic Information System. These classes are carried out remotely on the basis of an order. If, according to the specifics of the study module, it is not possible to conduct theoretical lectures remotely and if the persons safety and health is ensured, they can be conducted by contact.
Self-study in the autumn semester of AY 2021-2022 is carried out only during the period of self-isolation or foreign nationals who, due to force majeure circumstances (e.g. visa procedures, etc.) are unable to come to study on-campus. Foreign citizens who cannot come to study on-campus due to force majeure circumstances will have a possibility to study all study modules remotely, independently, consulting the lecturers remotely until the end of the 10th week of the autumn semester of AY 2021–2022. The foreign students have to submit the documents certifying force majeure circumstances to the International Relations Department.
It is considered that, as in the case of illness, you miss lectures, did not participate in assessments and laboratory work, but missed classes are justified.
It is important to mention that you are not exempt from liability, i. y. when you return from self-isolation, you will have to take missed assessments, perform laboratory and other semester work.
