Dear students,

The lectures and practicals on Microbiology in the winter term of the academic year 2021-2022 will start in the 4th week of September (since 20th of September) 2021; please follow the timetable.

Based on the decision of the Dean's board (August 26, 2021), the lectures will be held on-line in the Teams; invitation to the lectures will be sent to each student by the lecturers.

Practical teaching of Microbiology (GM) will be carried out in full-time mode, in the Practicals Room of the Institute of Microbiology, New Building, 2nd floor end (dentistry) in the practicals room at the basement of the New Building (entrance from the schoolyard, next to the yard entrance of the Institute of Pathological Anathomy). In accordance with the anti-epidemic measures (the maximum filling of the room up to 50% of the capacity) and with the consent of the Rector of the UK, from the online meeting of the UK Crisis Committee, the theoretical introduction to the practical training will be conducted online in the Teams and will be available to students at least one day before the practical exercise. The on-line connection to the theoretical introduction will be provided to the students by the teachers of practical exercises; consultations on the topics of practical exercises can be held in the Teams, after agreement with the teacher.

A thorough study of the theoretical background of the practicals topic is required before the students start to solve their practical tasks. At the beginning of the practicals, the protocol with completed answers to control questions will be submitted to the practicals teacher by every student. During the first 50 minutes of practicals, only the first half of the students (the first group assigned in the timetable) will be present in the classroom, performing practical tasks and recording the results to the protocol. After a 10-minutes´ break the whole procedure will be repeated with the second half of the students (the second group assigned in the timetable).

Syllables of lectures and practicals, together with the criteria for microbiology exam registration, and with the questions for the written and oral part of the exam, will be available on-line, at the website of the Institute of Microbiology:
