Study in late May and June

Following recent regulations issued by authorities, we continue to conduct classes in a remote mode. This applies primarily to “Evo-devo” course lectures and credits. Pending exams from “Evolutionary biology” will be conducted using videoconferencing software. Students will be contacted individually (e-mail, phone) with details of proposed solutions. Regulations are subject to possible changes following advice of epidemiological authorities.
