Distance learning. What is happening?
18.03.2020

On March 18, TSU has transferred all its undergraduates and graduate students to the distance learning form.

The situation is contingent, there is no ready-made algorithm of actions, so the university asks students and teachers to understand the changes, participate and help those who now need help.

So far, measures have been taken on March 28, then we will wait for the special order.

General points

All students are switching to a remote work format. The administrative apparatus of the university and teachers work (observing the preventive regime). The buildings will not close.

Students are asked to solve all arising issues online, through the headmen and deputy deans, minimizing attendance at the university.
