Update on COVID-19
As the epidemic situation has taken a turn for the better, and as a result of the successful vaccination program in Hungary, Óbuda University is also to return to its usual work schedule by taking currently effective legal regulations into account.
As you have already been notified, we will complete semester 2 of academic year 2020/2021 – including the examination period and the final examination period – in a digital work schedule, but students are already allowed to enter the University premises – including the Library – for managing their individual affairs, for consultation and work. Subject to an individual Rector’s permission, they are allowed to move back to the Student Hostel if justified by internship, work, exposure to the epidemic or other social circumstances.
According to students’ and professors’ feedback, everybody is looking forward to return to the usual bustling and creative university life. We plan to start academic year 2021/2022 with education in attendance. If necessary, a hybrid form of education can also be applied – within the scope of technical capabilities – primarily in the case of lectures with a large headcount.
In a number of cases, Government Decree 484/2020 (XI. 10.) currently in effect subjects the use of certain services also related to higher education studies – such as visiting public libraries, museums, sports facilities, gyms and fitness parlors, swimming pools and ice skating rinks, and participation in cultural events, music, dance and sports programs – to the presentation of an immunity certificate. This also applies to programs organized at Óbuda University.
In order to protect the health of students, professors and staff, you are kindly requested to get vaccinated against the coronavirus to be able to bring the next academic year to a successful conclusion and to prevent the fourth wave of the epidemic from breaking out. Non-Hungarian citizens without a social security ID also have the opportunity to do so free of charge.
You can register for vaccination at https://vakcinainfo.gov.hu/. After this you can fix an appointment at https://koronavirus.gov.hu/.
I wish you all a successful examination period and pleasant and relaxing summer holidays!
Prof. Dr. Levente Kovács
