Please note that the Government of the Slovak Republic adopted novel Decree No. 88/2021 regarding the exemptions to remote learning for General medicine students. Accordingly, the University’s Rector yesterday (14/02/2021) decided, via Rector assignation No. UK 5/2021, to offer exemptions for in-person learning process to students of the 4th year, 5th year, and 6th year of study.

We kindly ask those students of the 4th year, 5th year, and 6th year of study who are personally in Martin and would like to follow limited hybrid learning, to notify responsible Study officer.
As for the international students of the 4th year, 5th year, and 6th year of study who are currently in their home countries and are not planning or are not allowed to travel to Martin, Slovakia, and for the international students of the 1th year, 2th year, and 3th year of study the learning process will be carried out fully remotely.
