The Senate of the National Kapodistrian University of Athens announced that the duration of the academic year will be from December 16-August 9. The academic semester was considered to be lost. However, the Senate’s decision managed to save semester.
In line with the NKUA Senate, each semester requires 13 weeks of teaching plus an additional two weeks for the exam period, which means that there is plenty of time to cover the time lost due to the administrative employee strike. Meanwhile, the Senate called all university departments to align with the decision and plan their teaching schedules accordingly.
The School of Law, whose president recently announced that the semester was lost, departed from the Senate session after uninvited students interrupted the discussion.
