After 3 weeks of online learning, the KJU management analyzed the situation and has found that the spread of the epidemic has not slowed down, the pandemic situation is still uncertain in Hungary, the entry into the country is difficult and is allowed in various phases. Under these circumstances, the possibility of classroom (face-to-face) education cannot be fully secured for everyone. For this reason, in order to provide access to education and course materials without restriction to everyone, we will continue with the online form of education this semester. However, we are looking for the possibility of organizing contact programs, of which we will notify you in time.
In case you need help or support, do not hesitate to contact us.
