HZJZ publishes new recommendations for associate degree colleges

ZAGREB, September 3, 2020 – The Croatian Public Health Institute (HZJZ) on Wednesday published recommendations for classes at associate degree colleges, noting that holding physical classes while complying with the epidemiological measures in force is the optimal type of classes for those institutions.

Noting that its recommendations were adopted in line with positions of the National Council for Science, Higher Education and Technological Development, the HZJZ said that classes would be held live, with the presence of both professors and students, and take the form of distance learning in exceptional situations, when the study programme or epidemiological measures require it.

Students are encouraged to show solidarity with and help their colleagues who are unable to attend classes due to the epidemiologial situation while professors are encouraged to regularly hold face-to-face consultations while complying with epidemiological measures in order to maintain the quality of classes.

Exams will be held online in exceptional situations, when written examinations will be avoided and preference will be given to oral exams.

In order to reduce the number of weekly arrivals of students at college, it is recommended that classes be adapted in such a way to enable students to attend more than one class in a row, while respecting epidemiological measures.

If the epidemiological situation deteriorates or there are no physical conditions to hold classes in more spacious rooms, the college may decide to shorten classes.

Students, professors and other employees must not enter the college building if they have elevated body temperature or respiratory symptoms or if they are self-isolating or have been diagnosed with COVID-19.

Rules of physical distancing and personal hygiene will be have to be complied with and the wearing of face masks will be obligatory, except in cases when it hampers the teaching process.
