Coronavirus: Measures, Initiatives and Services
The University guarantees remote lessons, exams and degree sessions to all students. This is an important change, but the University is technologically equipped with classrooms and high-tech IT services.
► The University organizes remote teaching for all 70 degree courses on online digital platforms. The student can access the materials, video lessons, streaming or digital content, through the specific course page normally used on the University's e-learning platform. The teachers will record the lessons in order to make them available online for those who are unable to attend the University even when the frontal teaching starts again.
► Furthermore, with the Rectoral Decree of 13th March 2020, the possibility of taking exams and discussing the thesis at a distance was made available, not only for students of study courses, but also for Phd's, professional masters, specialisation schools. Everything will take place in public form: through virtual access, relatives and friends will be able to attend the discussions of the degree theses.
