If you have any further questions about studying at McDaniel Budapest during the 2020-2021 academic year, then please do not hesitate to contact either of us (Dr. Matthew Adamson & Dr. Jessie Labov) for more information.
Maintaining positive mental health is especially challenging during periods of an exceptional health alert such as the one we are now in—and it is crucially important. With that in mind, please note the following:
Mr. Somogyi adds the following: Due to Hungarian national emergency regulations related to COVID-19 on-campus student counseling services are shifting to two online platforms in regular office hours on Mondays between 12:00 pm and 3 pm. Since counseling is traditionally a face to face service offered by the College, we are now temporarily switching to an online format while government restrictions are in place. You can set up meetings through our online appointment booking system at www.mentalhub.hu but sessions will be conducted via skype or doxy.me online platforms for the time being. Once you set up a meeting, you will receive detailed instructions what to do, how to go about initiating an online counseling session.
Thank you for your understanding!
In light of the recent statement issued by the Hungarian authorities regarding continued operation of higher education, we have decided to move all instruction to an online environment starting on Monday, March 16. The school building will not be available for regular instruction as of Thursday, March 12. Classes this Thursday and Friday will be cancelled.
For the last four weeks, our campus administration has been preparing for the possibility of offering all instruction online. We have designed several methods and protocols to help both students and faculty handle this new situation, and will be communicating more specifics in the upcoming 48 hours.
We have every confidence in our close-knit community of faculty and students to rise to the occasion and continue with the semester in this new situation.
The College would like to remind all students and faculty about some of the precautions to take concerning the coronavirus.
