Due to the epidemic, the schedule of the academic year has changed in several ways. The exact dates are different in case of each faculty, therefore it is recommended that everyone check the current schedule of the academic year 2020/2021 for the respective faculty on the university’s website.

Several important changes have been made to the schedule of the academic year 2020/2021, which are indicated in the academic calendars broken down by faculties. One of the major changes affecting students of all faculties is that there will be no spring break in 2021. As the examination period has been extended by two weeks due to voluntary work and official placements, it was necessary to use the spring break to avoid that the spring semester and examination period take up too much time in the summer. Registration for the spring semester has changed as well, the spring semester starts later and lasts longer. The dates of board examinations have been modified and in case of the Faculty of Medicine and the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences the dates of internships have been changed as well.

To make the calendar more comprehensible, dates indicating registration, examination period, board examination and scientific events have been colour-coded.
