The rector can change the dates of the examination periods, as put forward by the dean of a faculty and approved by the Student Government Faculty Council, provided that the whole curriculum of a given programme is fulfilled.

For a valid reason, the dean of a faculty can cancel some or all lectures and classes on other days.

The deans are responsible for ensuring that all lectures and classes present in the curriculum take place. The e-learning methods and techniques may also be used to achieve this goal. The use of such methods and techniques is regulated by separate rules.

The period from September 16 to 30, 2018 is devoted to closing the 2017/2018 academic year and starting the 2018/2019 academic year.

The details concerning the organisation of the academic year for the Medical College are subject to discretion of the Vice-Rector for Medical College.

The details concerning the organisation of the academic year for part-time study programmes at a given faculty are subject to the dean's discretion in compliance with the plans and curricula of the programmes.
