CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) INFORMATION 2020/21 SPRING SEMESTER
Dear Students and Partners,
we kindly inform you that Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE) is accepting students for incoming mobility for the 2020/21 spring semester. The minimum period of physical mobility however must be at least 3 months for studies and 2 months for traineeships. We can not accept students for shorter periods of physical mobility.
Due to the worsening epidemiological situation, the Hungarian Government has enacted restrictive measures in effect from 11 November (Government Decree no. 484/2020. (XI. 10.)), according to which higher education can be conducted exclusively online for 30 days starting from today. The University pays special attention to providing partners and students with the most accurate information and assistance possible during this challenging period.
The preparation for the 2020/2021 Spring Semester must be conducted based on the regulations of hybrid education, taking into account that the curriculum will probably be delivered and cultivated in a completely online educational form in the first half of the semester.
This means: all courses will start probably completely online and those courses which are indicated present in the course lists may turn present (or both present and online) as soon as the Hungarian Government's decissions will allow it.
When making your decision do bear in mind, there is every chance that some of our schools will only launch online classes or present classes will turn online.
We recommend you consider your mobility semester on the basis of the revised course catalogues and the current COVID situation.: https://www.btk.elte.hu/en/course-catalogue
When making your decision do bear in mind that there is every chance that some of our schools will only launch online classes or present classes will turn to online.
It is also possible to request an exemption and pursue distance learning. Such permissions will only be granted due closed borders and similar COVID-19 related travel restrictions, or due to health conditions that put one at high risk. The permission is valid until the hindering conditions are still in effect (e.g. until it is possible to arrive in Hungary), but no later than until the end of the pandemic situation. To indicate your request for distance learning, please submit the form called "Request for participation in distance education" in the Neptun Education System.
Further and detailed information for our new incoming students will be published later: https://www.btk.elte.hu/welcome-to-our-new-students
