Based on the governmental decision and the guidelines received from the Ministry of Education and Research, the EAMT Rectorate decided:
– The buildings of EAMT will be closed from Monday, March 16th, for two weeks, until March 29. No teaching, events, practice, research work, administrative work or any other activity will take place at the premises of EAMT. Buildings cannot be accessed with a door card either.
/ EDIT (March 26): Based on the governmental decision and the guidelines received from the Ministry of Education and Research, the premises of the EAMT WILL REMAIN CLOSED, until stated otherwise /
– Academic activities are planned to continue from a distance via online systems. Optimal solutions will be found between the management and the teaching staff taking into account the specifics of educational activities at EAMT. In areas where distance learning is currently not possible (especially individual lessons), the academy aspires to assure that these lessons are realized later on. In questions regarding general information or studies, the students are advised to contact their teachers or study registrar.
– EAMT’s staff will continue to work from home offices and are available to contact via email.
– Today and over the weekend you can still enter the building. All staff and students who have things that they need in the coming weeks are asked to take them before Monday.
– The library is open today, March 13 until 7 PM and tomorrow from 10 AM to 3 PM and will be closed from Monday. For those who need some items for work or studies from home, please borrow them either today or tomorrow.
After two weeks, the EAMT rectorate will review today’s decisions. The decisions will be made taken people’s safety into account as the first priority.
