The exact number of weeks of instruction is set by faculty calendars, but in view of the contents of specific subjects and the distribution of the academic burden in time the minimum number of weeks of contact learning is 12. In view of the constantly changing epidemiological situation, it is possible to use distance learning, hybrid learning, online learning and contact learning; it is also possible to realise certain subjects in the form of concentrated blocks or modules. The AMU Management appeals to the faculties, particularly in the case of seminar subjects which can be realised through forms of instruction other than contact learning, to respect the deadlines set out in this calendar to ensure that these subjects are completed on time. For instruction realised by central units (CJP, CPPSR), the central AMU calendar shall apply. The Rector, in cooperation with the management of the affected faculties, shall make decisions regarding the start of the standard mode of required movement subjects (in particular acrobatics) according to the situation.
