University of Pécs - Rector's Cabinet - Centre for Internationalisation and Connections 

24.08.2020 | Students | Letter from the Rector - Information on entering Hungary

Dear Students and Future Students of the University of Pécs,

In this e-mail, we intend to provide all of you with important news and details regarding the forthcoming academic year. I know it is a long letter, but please, make sure to read it thoroughly as it contains vital information.

Under the pressures of the COVID-19 global pandemic, our main policy has been straightforward, and stays ‘Safety First’, in line with the requisite that we must follow the basic instructions regarding social distancing and personal hygiene. We do everything we can to maintain a safe and healthy environment for all university citizens.

Previously we have sent out a survey to you. If you have not filled it yet, please, do it as soon as possible: https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=1AIHVwcBOUqp1XR_i5eukUtUAs9AW1Nh87877XFep5UNkJQN080R0pYWUk3RDdEMFZGVjNCNUszQiQlQCN0PWcu


BASIC RULES OF ENTERING HUNGARY

According to Government Decree 341/2020. (VII. 12.), the Hungarian Government categorized countries and regions into 3 types based on the severity of the COVID situation in each: green, yellow, and red.

• Green stands for safe/lightly affected countries or regions.

• Yellow is for moderately affected countries or regions.

• Red countries or regions are the most affected countries or regions, with the highest counts of the newly infected.

The list of countries is meant to be updated weekly, on Wednesdays. The official list (as it was announced by the government on August 7th, 2020) contains only yellow and red countries. If you do not find your country of interest in the official notice of the Hungarian Government, it belongs to the green category.

1. Enter Hungary without restrictions Anyone, regardless of nationality or status in Hungary coming from green countries or regions can travel into Hungary without any restrictions. If you study in the field of medical and health sciences, and you will need to do clinical practice, special rules will apply to you. Please, contact your faculty coordinator for further information.

2. Enter Hungary with a preferential status Students with valid Residence Permits (non-EU/EEA students) or D type visas, issued by the Hungarian immigration authority may enter Hungary from countries or regions with yellow and red status, and do not require a police clearance but they shall pass a medical examination at their point of entry into Hungary.

• If they are suspected to be infected with SARS-CoV-2, they will be quarantined at a location decided by the authorities (normally their registered address in Hungary or at a stateapproved quarantine location).

• If they do not seem infected, they will still be required to stay in self-quarantine for 14 days but the requirement for self-quarantine can be waived: o If they have 2 negative SARS-CoV-2 test results, both performed over the last 5 days prior to the entry into Hungary, at least 48 hours apart, indicating that they are healthy. The test certificates must be in Hungarian or English.* o If, after entering Hungary, they are tested for SARS-CoV-2 twice, at least 48 hours apart, with a negative result, the rest of the 14 days is waived. * All COVID PCR tests result must be in English or Hungarian for the border entry.

3. Entry into Hungary for those without Hungarian documents (valid Residence Permits or D type visas) Students without Hungarian documents arriving from “yellow” countries, they will have to pass a medical examination at their point of entry into Hungary. • If they are suspected to be infected with SARS-CoV-2, they will be turned away from the border and refused entry. • If they do not seem infected, they will still be required to stay in self-quarantine for 14 days but the requirement for self-quarantine can be waived: o If they have 2 negative SARS-CoV-2 test results, both performed over the last 5 days prior to the entry into Hungary, at least 48 hours apart, indicating that they are healthy. The test certificates must be in Hungarian or English.* o If, after entering Hungary, they are tested for SARS-CoV-2 twice, at least 48 hours apart, with a negative result, the rest of the 14 days is waived. * All COVID PCR tests result must be in English or Hungarian for the border entry. Students without Hungarian documents arriving from “red” countries, are required to fill out a “Leniency Application” in order to cross the border. The leniency application is available on the Police's Electronical Administration portal. This page is in Hungarian, but the form is available in English, so do not worry. Go to the bottom left tile: “Államhatáron történő beutazáshoz méltányossági kérelem”. Then, click on it again on the next page. On the third page, you have the following options:

• COVID-01: entry application with logging in to “ügyfélkapu” (the Hungarian electronic administration system)

• COVID-02: entry application without logging in to “ügyfélkapu”

• COVID-03: appeal if your previous application was refused, with logging in to “ügyfélkapu”

• COVID-04: appeal if your previous application was refused, without logging in to “ügyfélkapu”

You will most probably need the option COVID-02, especially if you are not registered within “ügyfélkapu”.

The first question in the form is the Point of Entry. If you arrive by plane, start typing Liszt Ferenc Nemzetközi Repülőtér and it will show up. You can choose from terminal 2A or 2B, it must be shown on your plane ticket.

If you enter Hungary with a police clearance, the procedures listed above in Section 3 related to COVID-19 testing on the border will be relevant for you. Meanwhile, please, note that it is important to start with the process of applying for your visa whereas, you will be notified by the Hungarian Consulate in your country if you need to submit a Leniency Application.


HOW TO GET TO PÉCS?

After landing in Hungary, we advise you to take a shuttle which offers you a direct ride to Pécs. This is the safest way to travel and it costs approx. HUF 11,000 (≈ EUR 32). Please note that the University of Pécs does not arrange the shuttle for you. There are two main companies which offer airport shuttle from Budapest to Pécs:

Travel4You Airport Shuttle

MECSEK Travel Airport Shuttle

These minibuses are sterilized before every ride, making it the safest option to get to Pécs. We strongly advise to always wear a face mask in any enclosed place, including the vehicles. If you arrive in Pécs by road, make sure that you make no unnecessary stop and go to your destination on the shortest and quickest way.


ONCE YOU ARE IN PÉCS

we provide you with quarantine placement in a specially prepared dormitory building.


INFORMATION ON THE QUARANTINE

Quarantine placement will be available for students who need it in a specially prepared dormitory building. If a second negative test is also necessary, we will provide it for you 48 hours after the first one was taken. If you have been quarantined, we organize you delivered meals, and you will be able to join the classes online.

The University of Pécs provides the students with PCR tests for free, but special charges will apply for the International Welcome Desk service and the quarantine accommodation. More details on the exact fees are expected to come out soon.

18.03.2020 | Students | Letter from the Vice Dean of Educational Matters | Distance Learning from 23rd of March

Dear Students,

As you have already been informed, the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology (as with all the other universities in Hungary), will change its teaching system to distance learning from March 23, 2020.

Your teachers are preparing the organization and transition of your courses during the spring break (March 16-20, 2020). This transition concerns all previously announced courses of this semester, including both Hungarian and English courses. According to the new regulations, teachers and students are only allowed to keep in contact online, and this includes every form of consultation (diploma work, theses, computational works, etc.) as well as mid-year exams.

The following will happen within the period of March 16-20:

• Course requirements that are better suited to the digital teaching format will be uploaded to Neptun Meet Street by the teachers - you can find them under the ‘Documents’ menu.

• At the same time, the digital teaching platform will be chosen by the teachers. By default this will be Neptun Meet Street and another platform that is suitable for online teaching. The option recommended by the University is Microsoft Teams and we have already started to create these Teams groups.

As soon as a teacher is ready with the scheduling of a given course, he/she will contact you and let you know what to do.

Online teaching will commence on March 23rd, 2020 and will take place based on your previously existing timetable. Within this time period, we will continuously provide the opportunity for interaction between students and their teachers. Consultations will be in real time and you will get more information from your teachers.

For administration and other queries regarding your studies, please use the usual digital channels and phone numbers.

This transition to digital teaching system is new for both students and teachers and in the beginning some difficulties are to be expected, but we trust that they will be quickly resolved. If you have any problems, please contact your teachers to ensure you are able to successfully complete the spring semester.

We wish you all the best in connection with your studies and health.

Yours sincerely:

Dr Ildikó Jancskárné Anweiler

Vice-Dean for Educational Matters
