Updated Covid Measures – Bc. admission procedure

Please pay attention to the following information

Obligation of a negative AG test

In order to protect health of everyone concerned, the Rector issued a regulation stipulating that during the second round of admission procedures, all those present (vaccinated, unvaccinated even after overcoming the covid 19; candidates and pedagogical and non-pedagogical staff alike) must have an up-to-date negative antigen test.

All candidates (vaccinated, unvaccinated and even after overcoming the covid 19) must show a negative AG test not older than 24 hours upon entering the building on the first day of the admission procedure. 

A negative AG test result not older than 24 hours, submitted at the entrance to the VŠVU buildings on the first day of the second round of the admission procedure will also be valid on the second day.

For AG testing options, see point. 2) below. The need for testing also leads to a minor schedule change, see point 3) below.

AG testing options

The VŠVU will allow applicants in each term of the admission procedure on the first of the two days to be tested free of charge at the Mobile testing place (MOM) in the Drotárska 44 building in the morning. The MOM will be available to applicants at the following times:

7:30 - 08:30 AM CET

However, for capacity and organizational reasons, we recommend arranging testing on your own before arrival, if possible. You can find a list of MOMs with their operating hours and the possibility of registration for specific dates in Bratislava and in other regions at https://korona.zzz.sk/
