Rector's extraordinary measure: Cancellation of contact instruction by 13 April

The rector of Masaryk University, Martin Bareš, announced that he canceled contact teaching for one month immediately. This responded to the current situation regarding the spread of coronavirus infection. Students will not attend any contact lessons (from March 10 to April 13) next month. Teachers can replace it by distance form, where possible.

Dear Students,
Let me take this opportunity to clarify with you the parameters regarding the Rector’s announcement about study leave due to the coronavirus.
As you know, the study leave is set from March 10 to April 13, 2020. Within this time period all in-person classes (lectures, seminars) are cancelled for all students of undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate study programs. Also, during this period students are forbidden to enter the Faculty of Social Studies building. For this semester all block courses which are about to start during the Rector’s leave are cancelled. All assignments, projects, tests, midterms, etc. scheduled to take place during this period will be rescheduled for when classes resume. The new dates will be clarified by teachers once the classes resume. Rector's leave does not affect the deadlines for submission of theses (dissertation, diploma, bachelor's ones).
Teachers will make all assigned readings available in the IS system, if they have not done so already. Remote access to the library resources continue to be available. Instructions on how to access these resources remotely can be found on the FSS Library website here: http://knihovna.fss.muni.cz/eng/eresources.php?podsekce=14
Consultations with teachers are strictly via email only. Similarly, the Office for Studies and the International Office at FSS will only be available via email, communication is not possible via phone.
All domestic and international business and study trips, including conferences, internships, etc. will not be possible through April 30. This may be subject to further extension.
Exceptions will be made for students who are unable to earn enough credits during this semester due to this situation which would result in their inability to enroll in the fall term or to sit for their state exam. Students who face this situation will receive more information at a later date. Students will not have to change future study plans as a result of these policies.
This current situation is extraordinary for all of us. This is also why I guarantee you full support by departments and the faculty towards any challenges to your studies.
Please continue to follow the updated guidelines regarding travel at CZS: https://czs.muni.cz/en/news/86-coronavirus-en and MUNI: https://www.muni.cz/en/coronavirus.
In case of any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me.
Best regards,
Adéla Souralová
Vice-Dean for Education
Faculty of Social Studies
