    Wednesday closed

    Sorry for all inconveniences.

  • Due to the renovation of the room 109, the International Office - (only the staff from the room 109) will be relocated to the room 320 (3rd floor, Institute of Geography)

    The office (room 109) will be closed during its removal on the 5 - 6th July. In urgant cases during those two days please visit our colleagues in the room 36 (ground floor).

    We apologise for any inconvenience.
