Special Academic Regulations for Students

Special Academic Regulations for Students

29 July 2020

Government Decree no. 283/2020. (VI. 17.) issued by the Government of Hungary has introduced a state of epidemiological preparedness.

The responsibilities of the Epidemiological Operative Coordinating Body shall include, among others, the coordination of the implementation of measures introduced by external authorities as well as the preparation of internal university protocols. Therefore, Eötvös Loránd University’s Epidemiological Operative Coordinating Body has ordered the implementation of a “hybrid education model” for the autumn semester of the 2020/2021 academic year. The Body shall draw up unique interim Regulations of Training and Examination (TVSZ) pertaining to the hybrid education model for the period until they are approved by the Senate.

The TVSZ issued in the spring semester of the 2019/2020 academic year (Special Regulations of the Academic Regulations for Students pertaining to the distance education arrangement ordered in view of the state of epidemiological emergency) shall expire on the first day of the autumn semester of the 2020/2021 academic year.

The present TVSZ contains exclusively the special regulations pertaining to the hybrid education model and will be amended in the event that the University is again forced to implement a full or partial distance education arrangement. The TVSZ therefore primarily regulates activities undertaken during the study period, while more detailed regulations pertaining to exams and assessment will be issued at a later date upon a review of the experiences gained during the spring semester of the 2019/2020 academic year.

Temporary Special Regulations of Eötvös Loránd University’s Academic Regulations for Students Pertaining to the Hybrid Education Model Enacted in View of the State of Epidemiological Preparedness (Effective: 30 July 2020)

23 March 2020

Acting within the appropriate regulatory framework in the field of education, among others, is also a priority under the distance education arrangement introduced on 23 March, so as to guarantee the interests of students as well as predictable operations.

In view of the above principles, Eötvös Loránd University’s Epidemiological Operative Coordinating Body, in the interest of maintaining the smooth operation of the university and establishing the principles of uniform and predictable education and assessment practices – with a view to establishing the conditions and basic principles of the distance education arrangement – shall draw up unique interim Regulations of Training and Examination (TVSZ) for the period until they are approved by the Senate. In line with university practices, faculty representatives and student unions all took part in the preparation and commenting of the interim TVSZ. The document serves to provide guidelines for the application of certain provisions of the Academic Regulations for Students (HKR) under the distance education arrangement in a way that is clear and easy to comply with for a broad circle of the university’s community. The interim TVSZ covers the framework of the distance education arrangement and the manner in which it is to be implemented, including the rights and obligations of students and instructors.
