The test on British Studies will take place on April 23rd, 2018, at Aula Beliana (our lecture hall) at 2:35 p.m. (14:35). It is COMPULSORY (part of the continuous assessment in the American and British Sudies course) and cannot be retaken separately. The result of your British Studies test will added up to the American Studies test and final grades will calculated according to the ECTS grading scale. If the joint point total does fetch 65 points or more you have to take a resit test. The resit is a cumulative test made up of both American and British studies component.

On Wednesday, April 18, I'll give one more seminar for each of my British Studies group as planned in our schedule. They are not compulsory (no attendance will be taken), but active participation will be awarded. I'm planning to organise a public debate and those who will an active role in the argument will be awarded by 6 points. The topic will be immigration to Britain and your home preparation, if you're planning to attend, is to find out about the pros and cons of immigration from the point of view of Britain as a country.

4 Apr 16, 2018 The non-compulsory task this semester is a joint lecture given by Professor Pádraig O'Riain and Dr. Dagmar O'Riain-Raedel of University College Cork, Ireland. The lecture is part of the official visit of the irish Ambassador Hilda O'Riain at the Faculty of Arts, Matej Bel University on Tuesday, April 17th. The attendance of the lecture is non-compulsory (i. e. you don't have to attend it), but if do and write a REPORT on it you can earn an extra 5 points above your overall point limit for British Studies.  The lecture is entitled Ireland and Europe: language, religion, culture and adventure from the early Middle Ages until the Hapsburgs' and it will take place on Tuesday, April 17th, 2018, in room 341 (Tajovskeho 40) at 4 p.m. To help you with your report see Guidelines for writing a lecture report.
