ORGANIZATION OF DISTANCE STUDIES

 

  • Distance learning takes place in virtual learning environment Moodle, Teams, Office365
  • Contact work of the study subject (module) (lectures, seminars, practical tasks etc.) is carried out remotely at the time provided in the study timetables.
  • In the spring semester 2019–2020, only those student practices that can be performed under quarantine conditions and / or remotely will be carried out. A student performing his/her practice remotely must agree with the practice supervisor at the faculty and the company on the principles of organizing work during the practice. Some practices may be postponed by the faculty decision.

 

PREPARATION AND DEFENCE OF FINAL THESIS

 

Vilniaus kolegija/University of Applied Sciences takes the position that additional external circumstances caused by quarantine (quarantine announced nationwide), which disrupted the preparation of final thesis (e.g. gathering empirical data, performance of experiments, analysis of sources), should not affect the processes of final thesis preparation.

In preparing the final thesis, you are invited to use electronic resources: Databases, Electronic Books, Virtual Library.

The final thesis preparation procedure is currently being reviewed and, considering the current situation, changes to the final thesis preparation procedure will be published. It should be emphasized that individual student situations at Vilniaus Kolegija/ University of Applied Sciences will be responded flexibly, allowing a student to adjust the topic, purpose or research methodology for the final thesis so that the thesis could be successfully prepared in today’s learning environment.

The final decision on the procedures for the defence of final thesis will be made, after having more information about the final end of quarantine.
