Important notes:

  • Consequenses of a failed course!! Students can’t register for the following courses in the 2nd semester: Physiology, Pathophysiology II. Theory; Physiology, Pathophysiology II. Practice
  • If a student fails Anatomy theory I. OR practice I., the following subjects will be unavailable: Anatomy II. Theory; Anatomy II. Practice; Physiology, Pathophysiology II. Theory; Physiology, Pathophysiology II. Practice
  • Justification of absence: Students are obliged to provide a scanned medical certificate for the teacher in email as soon as possible but until the end of the next week at latest. No retrospective medical certificate is accepted at the end of the semester! If you have a planned absence (sky camp, occasions with the family,) please inform the teacher via email beforehand.
  • Progress exam correction due to absence: If a student missed a progress exam due to illness or other emergency, there is 1 more chance to make up for the missed progress exam. The date is announced at the beginning of the semester. It is really important that there is only 1 more chance, altogether 2 chances, not more.
  • Progress exam results: the teachers organize a results check-in for students after the progress exams. The date and time is sent via e-mail. If you plan to attend this check-in, please prepare with your questions and be respectful; a lot of students want to look at their results, it is not possible to have more than 5 minutes for a test.

  • Recognition of credits: If there is a credit recognition process ongoing for a student, it is the student’s duty to attend the classes until the credit transfer process is concluded.
  • due to the huge number of students, the teacher are strictly following the deadlines and the dates announced at the beginning of the semester. It is not possible to give other exam dates for individual students. All students should take this into consideration before asking for a separate exam time.
  • If students have any questions about the courses, we highly advise to please first look at the website, as most cases the answer is already uploaded. If there is an issue for which students can’t find any help on the webpage, the teachers are there to help. You can find the office hours above when you can find the teacher in the office. Any other time should be first consulted with the teacher via e-mail. When sending an e-mail to a teacher, please provide the following details: full name, NEPTUN code, the course name, which training (day/correspondent) and is necessary, the city of study (Pécs, Zalaegerszeg, Szombathely).
