Dear international exchange and Double Degree students of spring semester 2020, both those who have made the decision to leave/have already left for home country, and those who remain on our campus.

Just a reminder that our University has temporarily switched to the remote/online delivery of all courses, following our regular schedule for on site courses, same timings, but delivered remotely.

Since the switch to remote delivery courses is effected in a force majeure situation and had to be effected at a very short notice measure, there may be certain technical delays during the first days of the transition. Please be patient.  Should any difficulties occur, these will be resolved within the next few days.

All instructions from all teachers are sent to the shared e-mail of exchange students, at exchangespring20 (the gmail address).

Should you experience any breakdown in communication with teachers, please inform your academic coordinator by e-mail. While there may be a delay of 24 to 72 hours in our replies, we will make every effort to assist you as soon as we can.
