The exam period will be extended through the summer. The autumn semester will start later
The exam period for spring semester 2020 is extended and exams will be held from May 18 to September 30. The faculties are also recommended to offer students the September dates of the final state exams.
The university will be without contact teaching until at least mid-May
Today, the Rector of Masaryk University Martin Bareš decided to extend the measures that were taken in order to prevent the spreading of coronavirus.
MU is operating following the university traffic-light system. The university currently has a “YELLOW LIGHT” rating, determined by the MU Crisis Board. University faculties, institutes, and offices may declare a higher alert level than the university-wide level or introduce stricter rules than elsewhere at the university. Follow the websites of individual faculties and the colour-coded signs hanging on the exteriors of MU buildings.
On the initiative of Rector Martin Bares, Masaryk University created a volunteer network. With thousands of volunteers applying, we can now offer assistance in many activities and fields.
