NOTICE ABOUT TESTING DURING THE EXAMINATION PERIOD – January 11

Dear students

Concern for the safety of the students is one of the most important concerns for us, so all measures will be taken to ensure that you come to the school only in good health during the examination period, which will take place between 17 January and 11 February 2022. In case of symptoms of illness or quarantine, do not come to the school and deregister from the exam. Based on the analysis of exam unregistrations, the school may take further action to ensure taking of the exams in the current academic year.

In order to take the exams, which are given on-site at the school, students must provide proof of a negative test. This applies to all, including those who have been vaccinated and those who are recovered.

The following is considered as proof of a negative test:

  • Certificate of the HAG test that is not older than 24 hours.
  • Certificate of PCR test, which is not older than 48 hours.
  • Record sheet of the self-test performed at the school on the day of the exam.

If the test is positive on the day of the exam, you will be allowed to deregister from the exam.

In order to avoid additional stress before writing the exam, we recommend that you get tested at HAG at different testing sites in Slovenia and come to the school with the appropriate certificate and do not waste time with self-tests before the exam.

Students who do not pass the HAG test have the opportunity to take the self-test at the school. It should be emphasized that if there is a large number of students who will be taking a self-test, students are responsible for completing the self-test in a timely manner; if you do not pass the self-test by the time the exam begins, you will not be able to take the exam.

The self-tests will be organized at the school every day from Monday to Friday from 7 am to 5 pm in lecture rooms P-125 and P-126; students must bring the self-tests themselves as we unfortunately cannot provide them at the school. Upon completion of the self-test, you will receive a record sheet to fill out and use to enter the lecture hall where you are scheduled to take the exam.

We believe that these measures will allow us to ensure a safe and undisturbed winter examination period, and most importantly, we want the entire summer semester to be spent at the school.

All the best, take care and good luck with your exams.

 

 

IMPORTANT NOTICE JANUARY 7 – Adjustments during the last week of the semester and during the exam period

The epidemiological situation in the country is worsening, especially the number of infected people in your age group of 15 to 24 years. Therefore, the Senate of SEB LU has adopted two resolutions, related to the conduction of the study process and the upcoming exams.

  1. The study process (lectures, seminars and practice classes) will be conducted online during the last week of the winter semester (January 10-14, 2022). All midterm exams and written exams already scheduled for this week will be conducted either on-site at the SEB LU or online. Course leaders will decide this and inform you accordingly via the course website on Canvas.
  2. Exams in the 2021/2022 winter examination period will be offered either live at the SEB LU or online (a combination of both methods is not possible). The method of exam delivery is at the discretion of the course leader, who will determine the delivery method depending on the nature of the course and inform you accordingly via the course website on Canvas.

It is important that you come to the school in good health only. In case of symptoms of illness or quarantine orders, do not come to the school and deregister from the exam. Based on the analysis of exam withdrawals, the school may take further action to take exams in the current academic year.

Students, taking the exams on-site, will be required to take a test (including vaccinated and recovered) upon entering the school. If the test is positive on the day of the exam, you will be allowed to deregister from the exam.

Thank you for your understanding. In particular, we thank you for your conscientious respect for the measures.

NOTICE OCTOBER 19, 2021

IMPORTANT NOTICE – EXAMINATION

At its 25th regular session on October 18, 2021, the Senate of SEB LU resolved that the examinations (midterms and exams) will generally be conducted with the physical presence of the students at the school, which means that there will be no parallel online exams. In case of deterioration of the epidemiological situation and possible introduction of restrictions, the conduct of examination will be adjusted accordingly.

 

NOTICE SEPTEMBER 28, 2021

In order to provide students with uninterrupted access to direct study process in the premises of the School and safe conduct of the study process in accordance with the accredited study programmes, and to reduce the risk of infection and spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, the pedagogical process at the School of Economics and Business (SEB LU) will be adapted to current conditions in the winter semester 2021/2022. In case of additions or changes to the instructions, we will inform you in due time.

In the winter semester 2021/22, the study process of full-time study will be carried out live at the SEB LU with a live transmission to the online environment.

All students, with the exception of first-year undergraduate students, will begin the study process according to the schedule on Monday, 4 October 2021.

It is important that only healthy students come to the School. Also, proper use of masks, hand and cough hygiene is required. Wearing masks is mandatory in both School common areas and lecture halls throughout the duration of lectures and tutorials, including breaks. Failure to comply with the requirement to wear masks will result in a warning from the lecturer to the student. If the condition is still not fulfilled despite the warning, the pedagogical process may be suspended.

When to the School?

Students who are enrolled for the first time in a study year, are healthy, and meet the recovered, vaccinated and tested (RVT) requirements (including self-testing) are expected to attend live lectures and tutorials. Students attend lectures and tutorials in groups, into which you will be placed according to the timetable. It is not possible to change groups. If you are unable to attend the lectures or tutorials in your group due to the limited number of places, you can follow them online.

Considering the large number of students and limited number of seats in the School, and strictly following NIJZ (National Institute of Public Health) instructions (maintaining recommended interpersonal distance of 1.5-2m, proper use of masks, hand and cough hygiene, cleaning / disinfection and effective ventilation), students should pre-register through the Canvas platform of an individual course for EVERY lecture and EVERY seminar/practice class that you will attend at the School. This will ensure a safe study environment for all participants.

In case of relaxation measures and better epidemiological situation, the availability of live studies will increase.

 

How do I register on the Canvas platform for physical attendance in the lecture hall?

You should register your attendance for each lecture and tutorial separately on the Canvas platform in the Courses/People/Groups section. Registration for each lecture and tutorial opens one week before the event and closes at 12 p.m. on the day before the event. (During the first week of study, the time for registration is shorter. For the first day of lectures and seminars/practice classes, registrations are open until noon on Sunday, 3 October 2021).

You can only register in groups for which you are scheduled in alphabetical order.

A link to the online sessions of each lecture and tutorial will be posted on Canvas (ZOOM link).

 

Registration before entering the lecture hall – QR code

You will enter the lecture halls according to the entry protocol, i.e. you must register your attendance at lectures and seminars/practice classes by scanning the lecture hall’s QR code, which is displayed on the lecture hall’s door and on tables in some lecture halls. Please do not group together at the School premises and keep a distance of 1.5m. This is the only way we can ensure a safe study environment and proper notification in case of possible infection.

 

When and who is online?

The live broadcast of the pedagogical process is used by students who cannot attend live lectures due to health reasons, quarantine or lack of space. Foreign students can follow the live broadcast of the pedagogical process until their arrival in Slovenia.

 

It will only be possible to watch lectures or seminars/practice classes without the active participation of students watching the pedagogical process remotely.

 

Entry to the School and verification of RVT conditions

Access to the School is available to all students (for the purpose of verifying RVT conditions including self-testing) between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. at the following entrances:
