Student Support Services: You are not alone

Our Student Support Services team is made up of trained psychologists and counselors whose duty is to support Corvinus students’ mental health, studying efforts, and career plans.

In the unusual and challenging situation we currently find ourselves in, it is particularly important for us to be accessible in order to help our students cope with the distance learning mode as well as with the difficulties of everyday life.

How can we help?

● Look out for our educational and self-help material that will help you find ways to cope with the situation caused by the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic. You can learn about coping with anxiety and stress, managing a situation caused by an external threat, or adapting to new methods of studying.

● If you feel you need individual counseling support, please write to studentcounseling(at)uni-corvinus(dot)hu. Please write a few words about the exact nature of your problem. We will inform you about details on short notice. Your message will be treated confidentially.

  Let’s talk about your mental health: interview with clinical psychologist Dr. Marietta Németh  

People had ambivalent reactions to the worldwide quarantine. Introverts probably welcomed it, while extroverts hated it… 
The situation is unusual, our daily rhythm has changed, our space has narrowed, and we are bound to spend more time with ourselves and our families than before. 
  • How long does it take to adapt to the changes in environment and lifestyle? 
  • What effects can the solitary confinement have on our mental state?
We talked to clinical psychologist, Head of Corvinus Student Support Office Dr. Marietta Németh about ways to respond to the situation.

Dear Final-year Students,

In order to support the pursuit of further education and employment of our final-year students, we have started the dispatch of the certificates to those students who received their degrees in the December 2019 and January 2020 final exam period.

Due to the epidemiological situation, no event with 500 or more participants can be held before August 15, therefore we are unfortunately not able to have our traditional graduation ceremony in the summer. Based on some projections, a new wave of the coronavirus is possible in the fall, thus at this moment its uncertain what type of regulations will be in effect from September.

Despite this situation, we still believe that it is important that all our students celebrate the successful closure of their university studies appropriately, therefore we would like to make up for the cancelled graduation ceremonies as soon as possible. Nonetheless, we would like to avoid making irresponsible pledges regarding the exact time of these ceremonies, since we do not know when this situation will be over and what orders will be in effect throughout the fall.

It is of utmost importance for us to ensure the safety of You, your family and loved ones when participating at this ceremonial occasion.

Hoping for your kind understanding in this matter.

Kind regards,
Prof. András Lánczi, Rector
