The Senate of Vilnius University (VU) made a decision, ruling that the study process and its activities will be once again planned in a non-remote manner in the autumn semester of the 2021-2022 academic year. For this reason, the auditoriums, laboratories, libraries, courtyards and campuses will reopen in September.
Non-remote studies will only take place depending on the situation of mass vaccination in the country to ensure safety.
“I believe our community is actively taking advantage of the opportunity provided by scientific progress. This is vital for our future. I am certain we will return with the experience of remote learning during the pandemic period, evaluate and maintain what could be used to complement or expand teaching and learning opportunities. However, lively teacher-student relationships, emerging human connections, issues arising during face-to-face communication and discussions are the values that set the University apart from all other forms of learning.
Therefore, let us be responsible today: let us get vaccinated ourselves and invite those who are sceptical, not daring or downplaying the effects of the pandemic. This will help us welcome the approaching September safely and start yet another academic year of the extraordinary history of our University”, the Rector of VU prof. Rimvydas Petrauskas said.
