Please listen to my video message:
Large amount of often contradictory information appeared about coronavirus in the media.
In order to keep our students informed, to protect their health, and to ensure that the education at our University remains uninterrupted – as it has been in the past 233 years – I hereby order the followings.
Since the worldwide appearance of the coronavirus, our university has taken all necessary actions and followed all precautions. We kept our students informed. As compared to the rest of Europe and beyond the outbreak in Hungary remains at a low level. Our University is coronavirus free.
One of the most effective ways to prevent the coronavirus infection is to limit human interactions in dense indoor areas. For this reason – according to the Hungarian government’s decision today – I order the university education to switch to distance learning and I declare a no-entry policy for students for an indefinite period of time.
From the 16th of March, we educate our students and carry out examinations online. Technical information will follow soon.
Students are not allowed to enter the campus starting from 12th of March. The student dormitory will be closed from 14th of March on.
At the moment the number of coronavirus infected patients in Hungary is lower than in many European and other countries. Therefore, students leaving Hungary can only come to Campus after staying in home quarantine for two weeks after returning to Budapest.
Up-to-date information on coronavirus focal points and high-risk areas is available at https://koronavirus.gov.hu/ and also at the Consular Service of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (https://konzuliszolgalat.kormany.hu/utazasi-tanacs).
I urge everyone to comply with the general epidemiological standards.
Information and related policies are available on our University website at https://univet.hu/en/coronavirus in English.
