  • Suspension of classroom-based instruction

    All schools of higher education in Croatia, including our own, received instructions from the Government to suspend our regular classes for two weeks. Our professional board has decided, due to a number of its students coming from distant regions and the possibility of a further extension of this period, that VETU will suspend regular classroom-based instruction for one month and that we will continue with our regular classroom instruction from April 20th. All of our courses will continue with online-based instruction according to our normal schedule - our lecturers will upload their materials on the course pages within (Moodle), students are to be in contact with their lecturers and continue to do assignments as set by their lecturer. Each student has the user information and is enrolled within the system in the courses he / she is attending this semester. The lecturer communicates with students through the aforementioned pages, sends messages, uploads materials, records content, and in the event of problems with the system, will use e-mail to inform the support group.
