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 Spring semester of 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 February for your exchange period.
Spring semester will start online (using Moodle learning environment), we planning to resume study process into a regular in-class teaching in April, 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 online (February-March) and face-to-face (April-June).
