Corvinus is switching to distance learning, which applies not only to the term period but also to the examination period. In its latest order the Presidential Board also lays down detailed rules, which cover – among others – the situation of the dormitories, the rules for examinations and final examinations and the rules on simplified traineeships and employees, in addition to distance learning.
The remainder of the first semester will remain entirely online at Corvinus, which applies to the courses, consultations, reports and the exams. Personal consultations can be held only on exceptional basis, subject to prior agreement with the lecturer.
Students can also manage their academic affairs online, on the recently launched “Deal with it Online” platform (find the details here), as well as by sending letters sent from the university e-mail address to email@example.com address. If absolutely necessary, the students may make appointments for administration in person here.
The reading halls in the Corvinus Library will be closed, however, online services and rentals will continue to be available; the latter must be requested in advance on the library’s website. Registration is available to Corvinus students and employees only, and expiring reader’s cards will not be renewed.
The university building can only be visited for work purposes and in justified cases, for consultation or administration in person. The mandatory fever check (37.8 ° C) and the mask-wearing remain unchanged. No one can enter the campus after 7 p.m., but employees who are already inside can stay until closing, i.e., 10 p.m. The university is closed on weekends, however, faculty members may enter Building C due to
Saturday’s online classes from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. The Faculty Club and sports facilities will also be closed, while the respective managers will decide on the operation of the cafeterias.
The university dormitories will be closes, housing contracts will be suspended, but will remain in force. Rental costs will not be charged for this period, however, personal belongings may remain in the dormitories, so students can move back immediately once the regulations allow it. Subject to prior registration and medical declaration, students may have access to these items at any time, and the security deposit will also be returned in the event the student moves out permanently.
Events with personal attendance cannot organised, while workplace meetings, discussions and board meetings can be held if the safety measures are observed.
Physical Education classes can be completed based on personal participation completed so far and online participation for the remaining weeks. Information on the latter will be provided by the faculty members responsible for the course concerned, via Moodle, Teams and Neptun.
Simplified solutions for those whose internships were interrupted
The epidemic affects the internships as well. Those who have started their internships properly and continue to be employed by the internship host can verify their practice according to the original rules. At the same time, the university is helping those students who can no longer be accepted by the internship hosts due to the epidemic with simplified solutions.
If the student has the required work experience gained in advance, then it will be recognised as professional practice. Information on the procedure for the recognition of work experience will be sent by the university later.
If the student does not have such work experience, then a certificate shall be provided according to the general rules about the professional experience completed until the restrictions. This certificate must also indicate that the internship traineeship was interrupted as a result of the epidemic. The remainder of the internship can be continued by the student in the same place or elsewhere after the restrictions have been lifted. In the latter case, there is no need to enter into a co-operation agreement between the internship host and the university only if there is less than six weeks left from the internship.
In addition, the deadlines for internships will be reviewed by the university and will extend those to the extent allowed by the circumstances. Problems related to internships can be reported to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Exams are also held online
Exams and tests will be held online during both the term period and the examination period, via Teams or Moodle in all cases.
