On Wednesday, 18. 11. 2020, a meeting of university representatives with the Ministry of Education, Science and Sport and National Institute of Public Health took place.
We were informed about current COVID-19 situation, spreading trends and consequently expected gradual easing of measures. Considering all of those, we concluded, that the university premises remain closed at least until the end of the year.
Wherever possible, studies continue to be implemented on-line, while we will be implementing practical exercises, which need to be implemented live, in the year 2021.We hope that we will be able to welcome students and staff in our buildings as soon as possible. However, this depends completely on the COVID-19 trends in the upcoming weeks. In December we will notify you about the specifics of study process after 4 January 2021.

Tutorials, lab work and field work that were not fully implemented can now be carried out in the winter exam period (18 January - 12 February 2021) or during the spring semester (15 February - 4 June 2021).
PSYCHOLOGICAL FIRST AID: Psychological support live againtop
In recent weeks we have again found ourselves in an unpredictable situation. We are largely cut off from normal life and we can feel scared, sad, confused, angry, unmotivated, stressed, lonely or to feel a loss of control. These kinds of reactions are understandable in present circumstances.
We have re-established psychological support services for students and staff. Following the experiences from spring, the support is organized a bit differently. Everyone in distress can contact psychologists via email@example.com to schedule a ZOOM appointment.
More information, including the schedule of psychologists, additional support numbers and announced lectures are available at: https://www.upr.si/en/university/covid-19--up/psiholoska-podpora
