Since the outbreak of COVID-19, Mykolas Romeris University has implemented various measures to cope with the crisis as we had to adapt quickly to the new conditions. Now we would like to update you regarding the upcoming Academic Year 2020-2021 and provide all necessary information.
We are happy to announce that Mykolas Romeris University has decided to go ahead with exchanges in Academic year 2020-2021 and you are more than welcome to join us in September and in February for your exchange period.
We are preparing to start Academic year 2020-2021 from September and planning to resume study process into a regular in-class teaching, but it will remain as blended learning (some students in class, some staying remotely) in majority of courses, therefore in case it happens that student does not arrive due to mobility restrictions, he/she will be able to start all classes from home country until arrival – which means that no students will miss any teaching.
It is important to underline that decision has just been taken on 25 May 2020 by all faculties of the University to allow incoming exchange student (if physical arrival is prevented due to unavailable travel or due to another outbreak of COVID-19) to study remotely entire Academic Year and virtually finish the Autumn/Spring semester including online final assessment of learning outcomes and we will be able to issue Transcript of Records with all results of studies.
We do want to draw your attention to the following:
- Our education (and assessment) will be offered as face-to-face and online.
- In case you will not be able to receive VISA on time or there will be travel restrictions, you will be able to join our education from your home town/country.
- If you decide to start your mobility from your home town/country, please keep in mind that classes in Vilnius will be offered in the Eastern European Time (EET) zone.
- The Introduction Week sessions will be offered online as well. More information will follow in due time.
- Should you decide to stay outside MRU Campus, we urge you to follow the situation and do not sign the accommodation contract before August/end of January.
- Do check your insurances carefully in case you will travel to Lithuania for your exchange; will you e.g. be repatriated to your home country in case a second COVID-19 wave hits Lithuania?
- Please make sure to arrange for your visa in time.
- Please check the travel advice to Lithuania from your Ministry of Foreign Affairs, as this will always be leading for you as a citizen of your country. Also you can follow travel updates in the web-page of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Lithuania: urm.lt/default/en/important-covid19
- All up-to-date information available at www.koronastop.lt
- In case of the second COVID-19 wave in the Fall with a potential new lockdown or new measures we will switch to online learning, so the study process will not be interrupted.
