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. The measure cancelling all contact teaching at Masaryk University is now extended until 15 May. It is also planned to extend the examination period until the end of September to allow students to have enough time for consultation and preparation for examinations.
“We do our best to make sure that all students' rights are respected. We do everything we can to prevent students from missing the semester, to allow them to submit their seminar or final theses, or to take examinations including state exams in due dates, or to postpone deadlines where necessary due to restrictions," said Rector Martin Bareš. He says these measures must correspond to the situation at individual faculties.
