Assistance for students to maintain their studies at the individual level: at the end of the semester, each teacher assesses the indicator of students’ academic performance in the course unit, the results of the teaching quality assessment, their relation to the student’s academic performance, and reviews the content of the course unit. In order to assist students in maintaining their studies, vice-deans of faculties and employees of KVK departments providing assistance to students announce the time, place and nature of consultations on academic assistance on the KVK website, in the section Academic Assistance. Upon assessment of the course units included in the list of course units with the lowest (less than 70 %) level of academic performance, additional hours may be provided by the dean of the faculty for the consultations on these course units as a precautionary means of assisting students in maintaining their studies, as well as means of providing academic assistance. The teachers of these course units, during the first classes of the course unit, check the level of knowledge of the students and set a higher number of hours of consultation for students whose level of knowledge is not sufficient. The list of students and the schedule of course units for which additional hours of consultation are allocated are drawn up and published in advance. Students are obliged to attend these consultations.
