Information on the start of the 2021/2022 academic year
LATEST STUDENT INFORMATION

8/25/2021


Dear Students!

According to our current plans, we will basically start the fall semester of the 2021/2022 academic school year with traditional, in-class instruction, with online support for some courses. The exact regulations and the most important questions and answers can be found below.

Questions Regarding your Studies

Some courses will be held online (basically lectures for over 50 people), but most of the courses will be taught in-classroom. We are not planning to have online and in-classroom teaching for the same course taking place at the same time. Since lectures and seminars are considered separate courses, it may very well be the case that the lecture will be held online and the seminar will be in the form of in-classroom teaching. The format of the course can be seen in Neptun: if you can see in the comment box of the course that it is “online”, the course will be held online, otherwise it will be held in the classroom.

The general rules of the Student Requirements System (HKR) apply to classroom attendance. Should we end up transitioning to online education during the semester, class attendance will apply to online attendance.

The Student Requirements System provides that:

"Compulsory class attendance may be required if the semester assessment of the student's performance, according to the system of subject requirements, includes class work. […] Even in the case of compulsory class attendance, the signature may not be refused if the student has duly certified their absence (medical certificate, dean's permission, etc.) or if the extent of the unjustified absence does not exceed 20% of the number of classes. The total of certified and unjustified absences may not exceed 50% of the number of classes. "

Whatever form we will be teaching in, we will not deviate from the number of hours originally set forth, and will ensure that all students are properly prepared to complete the courses taken. For these reasons, we do not consider a general reduction in the fee or in the foreign language contribution to be justified.

We have created a new scholarship (a social-based scholarship for fee-paying students) that we will continue to provide to those in need this semester.

Based on our current knowledge, we are preparing for an examination period in the traditional form (attendance).

Instructors were primarily asked to make the course content available regardless of the timetable date and time. Please also study the subject fulfillment conditions for each course.

If the published and uploaded course content is in any way unsuitable for students with special needs, please notify the Deputy Dean of Education of your specific Faculty.

During both in-classroom and online education, the instructor may become ill. In this case, the Head of the Department responsible for the subject decides whether the lessons will be held by another Instructor for the duration of the original Instructor’s absence, or will be replaced at a later time. Depending on the current situation, the replacement will be either in-classroom or online.

In September, periodically changes in the operation of the dormitories will take effect due to external circumstances.

You can find information about the rules of operation of the dormitories in the currently valid Rector-Chanceller’s Joint Declaration.

Epidemiological Measures and Safety

Due to the escalation of the epidemic, the use of a mask covering the nose and mouth is mandatory from Monday, November 8, 2021, in the interiors of BBS (common rooms, classrooms, reception rooms, offices and corridors), as well as in the communal areas of university dormitories. This rule also applies to colleagues, external guests and organisers participating in events taking place in the buildings of BBS.

A person giving a presentation in a classroom or auditorium setting (e.g.: lectures, seminars, practical lesson) or at an event is exempt from wearing a mask. Other exceptions to the new mask rule are the office environment, if the number of people present does not exceed 10, and in the environment of the dormitory rooms.

Yes.

Other exceptions to the new mask rule are the office environment, if the number of people present does not exceed 10, and in the environment of the dormitory rooms.

To visit the university and to attend the attendance classes from Monday, November 8th, wearing a mask will be mandatory, but a vaccination certificate is still not required. Nevertheless, for the benefit of all of us, we strongly recommend that you be properly vaccinated.

What matters here is a reasonable degree of “voluntary quarantine”: whoever feels sick, or who has recently been in contact with someone who has since developed symptoms, be sure to avoid the University community for a few days and see your doctor. Detailed epidemiological measures are provided HERE.

Dissertation and Final Exam

We are currently acting in accordance with the general provisions of the Student Requirements System (HKR). You can find the details HERE.

For the time being, we cannot predict how the epidemic situation will develop in the future. We currently plan to follow the general provisions of the Student Requirements System, but if necessary and justified, we will organise the examinations online, as in the previous semester. We will provide more accurate and up-to-date information about the details later.

Scholarships and Financials

Of course not. Scholarship entitlements will not change either. Scholarships are guaranteed.

Yes, in accordance with Section 93. § (8) and (11) of the Student Requirements System. In addition, we operate a special scholarship fund to provide social support to our self-funded (fee-paying) students.

Such a request can be demanded regardless of the crisis situation. According to the Student Requirements System, reducing costs is the responsibility of the Faculties, so it can be done if reducing revenue does not jeopardize their operations. Due to the emergency, it is certain that the expenditures financed directly or indirectly by the Faculties will decrease (e.g.: the cost of additional mobility scholarships, events), so some additional resources may occur. Unfortunately, the possibilities are endless.

Internship

In some sectors of the economy (especially tourism), there are currently far fewer internship opportunities than under normal circumstances. With respect to the selection of professional internships, we therefore handle the curriculum regulations flexibly, allowing for internships with a slightly different profile from the given field of study. BBS can also provide you with internships. Pay special attention to this information!

Services / Administration

Our request is that before contacting customer service (by email, phone or in person), study the information published on the website! We constantly monitor the topics and problems that our students turn to us with, and we try to provide appropriate information about them on the website.

The following pages contain the most important information:

  • Students’ Page - under the menu items here (e.g.: Studies, Finance, Services, etc.) all the necessary information for the successful completion of studies can be found in an overview format.
  • Frequently Asked Questions - typical student questions and answers from customer service and departments can be found here.
  • Most Common Neptun Problems/Student Help Guide - this page can provide quick assistance with respect to registsration of courses, start of the semester, exam registration.
  • Monitoring Academic Progress - it is especially recommended for students starting their final semester to do a self-audit of all the courses they have taken according to their specific curriculum during the enrollment period, so that should they find any deficiencies, they will till have time to register.


If you cannot find the answer to your questions on the pages above, please first of all check to find out exactly where they deal with whatever problem or question you might have! Information about this can be found HERE. It is also important that you find out the hours of operation of the student customer service areas before going in person!

The diploma can be picked up at the Student Customer Service Office, after making an appointment. We will be able to organise a graduation ceremony if the current epidemiological rules allow it.

Once again libraries can be visited in person, at a pre-arranged time.

Please visit the web page of the given library!

Erasmus

No. The departure must take place in accordance with the epidemiological measures of the host country. If it is not possible for a student to fulfill their academic obligations, the early return will be considered an extraordinary event and the costs incurred within the rules and framework of the given programme can be accounted for. If the university you have chosen abroad offers the opportunity to complete your studies in the form of distance learning, it is recommended that you take advantage of this to obtain credits.
