We would like to notify you that on the basis of the amended UP Guideline for the implementation of work on UP premises during the current measures against the spread of COVID-19 disease, mandatory weekly testing is introduced for students participating in the pedagogical process that is going to be carried out at the faculty (face-to-face) and fieldwork organized by the faculty.
To participate in the pedagogical process, students are required to present a valid certificate of a negative RAT test to the lecturer at the beginning of lectures / tutorials on a weekly basis.
Free testing takes place on weekends from 9:00 to 17:00 at two locations, namely:
- Fridays in Ankaran
- on Saturdays and Sundays at Bonifika in the parking area across from the health center.
For all those included in the compulsory health insurance system and for foreigners living in the border areas in Italy, testing is free. Students need to bring a health insurance card (if they have one).
Free testing is also being introduced on the border with Italy. More information is available here (only in Slovene): https://www.gov.si/novice/2021-03-08-brezplacno-testiranje-pri-vstopu-v-slovenijo-iz-italije/

However, you will need to send an e-mail to the Student Services no later than Friday by 12:00 (firstname.lastname@example.org).

- NOTICE (10. 2. 2021): COVID-19: Implementation of the study process in the spring semester 2020/21
We would like to inform students that the study process in the first week of the spring semester (February 15 - February 19, 2021) will take place entirely on-line. The further course depends on the epidemiological situation in the country, more in the explanations below.
Explanations: The Republic of Slovenia is currently in the red phase, according to the anti-corona release measure plan. Therefore, only urgent lab work and individual work with students can be performed on the faculty premises. Taking into account epidemiological data, Slovenia is close to the transition to the orange phase, when it will be possible to carry out the study process for smaller groups of students (up to 10 students) as well as field work (also for smaller groups - up to 10 students). Even if we move to the orange phase next week, we must properly organize all the processes at the faculty and carry out employee testing. To avoid complications, it was therefore decided to conduct the first week of the semester entirely remotely (on-line). In accordance with the decision of the competent departments, the lab work planned for implementation in the lab classroom - Vajalnica (Famnit-Muzejski2) will be carried out remotely until 19 March 2021, and from 22 March 2021 onwards at the faculty, in to the extent that the measures in force allow it. At the same time, we would like to inform you that the implementation of the study process as it was carried out at the beginning of the 2020/21 academic year will be possible only when the country will be in the yellow phase. We will keep you informed of changes and further measures.
NOTICE (28. 1. 2021): COVID-19: Amendments made to the decision of the UP Rector
We would like to inform the students that we have published the new decision of the UP Rector on the Faculty's website. The UP guidelines remain unchanged. Due to the deterioration of the epidemiological picture in coastal municipalities, from 30 January 2021 onwards the implementation of the pedagogical process at the Faculty is again not allowed (the previous decision enabled the implementation of lab work and individual work with students). This notice is valid until revoked. We will keep you informed of changes and further measures.
- NOTICE (22. 1. 2021): Amendments made to the UP Guidelines
We would like to inform the students that we have published the amended UP Guidelines and the decision of the UP Rector on the Faculty's website. In accordance with the guidelines, lab work (LV) will be allowed on the univesity premises from next week on. However at UP FAMNIT, the implementation of the missing lab work hours during the January exam period was not planned, that is why they will be carried out during the 2nd semester. All exams continue to take place online.
This notice is valid until revoked. We will keep you informed regarding any changes and further measures.
- NOTICE (14. 1. 2021): Adjustments to the winter examination period (18 January - 14 February 2021)
Let us inform you that the current UP measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 remain in force also for the winter examination period. The faculty remains closed until revoked. All exams which are predicted to be held in winter examination period will be held only online. At the same time we are informing you that there have been changes in the method of assessing knowledge in individual courses of study programs. These changes have already been adopted by the UP Senate and are valid exclusively in the academic year 2020/21.
You are able to access the list of courses and changed ways of assessing knowledge in your SIS on the home page.

- NOTICE (18.11.2020): Measures remain in force at least until the new year
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.

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
