The teaching period for the foreign students at the Catholic University in Ružomberok has started with all necessary safety measures.


This academic year it is of course different, but the university leaders, individual teachers and employees of the Foreign Relation Office are trying to do everything to make the semester for the incoming students as much comfortable”, describes the situation the vice-rector for foreign relations Imrich Andrási.


Students from different countries and universities come to study at CU within the Erasmus+ Programme. It is gratifying that the interest in mobility is still quite high during the COVID-19 pandemic. The largest group of students comes from France (IRCOM, Institute Albert le Grand), Italy (Universita degli Studi dellʻInsurbia), one student is from Georgia (Samtskhe-Javakheti State University) and one from Turkey (Pamukkale University).



Students will study in smaller groups, but if the situation with virus will demand it, they will switch to online classes. The university has prepared a special course “Discover Slovakia” to give them more about history, politics and culture of our country. They can learn Slovak language for free as well.
