The Accreditation Committee carried out an inspection at the faculty based on several submitted motions and found out that the education took place at sites which did not have accreditation. Moreover, the content of the programme had been altered and currently takes place under different conditions, outside the faculty as well as the school itself, mostly in the Czech Republic.

The decision means that the faculty cannot enrol new students. Those already studying at the school will be able to finish their studies, the ministry informed.

The University considers the halt unlawful and filed a complaint against the decision. The Regional Court in Bratislava subsequently postponed the effect of the decision until it will decide about the case.
