Dear friends, dear colleagues,

This email is highly relevant and important particularly for those of you who plan, in this spring semester 2020, to defend their final theses, pass final state exams or apply for a graduate or postgraduate study program at FSS MU.

Please kindly find below a set of measures that I tentatively mentioned in my letter last week and that we are implementing in this context at the faculty level. They are guided by our relentless effort to make your lives easier in your already much-complicated situation.

I strongly believe that these measures will enable all students who wish to do so to finish and defend their Bachelor, Masters or Doctoral theses, successfully pass final state exams or entrance tests for graduate or postgraduate study programs.

Should you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

Wishing you all the best and abundance of health, energy and optimism in the

days to come.

With kindest regards,

Stanislav Balík

Dean, FSS MU
