Wrocław University of Science and Technology have announced that classes will not return as normal this semester.
“After much analysis and consultation, we have decided to start studies for the winter semester according to a hybrid formula.
This means that some classes will be held at the university (primarily laboratories and physical education classes), and some will be conducted remotely (mainly lectures and language courses).”
Rector Prof. Cezary Madryas and the rector-elect Prof. Arkadiusz Wójs.
The university say that some classes will be prepared in such a way that they can easily go remote should the threat from coronavirus necessitate it.
In the event that the epidemic further hampers operations at the University of Science and Technology, priority will be given to students in their first and last years of study, as well as phd students.
At the time of writing, Wrocław’s other universities have not yet announced how classes will be organised this semester. However, according to Gazeta Wrocławska, most of them are planning to work similarly to the Wroclaw University of Science and Technology.
If that turns out to be the case, and thousands of students need not attend classes in Wrocław, the price of renting an apartment in the city could decrease noticeably due to a lack of demand.
