Information on the measures provided by the University of Turin - in progressive updating -  is available below.

 

Visit the dedicated webpage Back to UniTO: access to University venues for information on the reopening of the buildings and the gradual return to University venues.

 

This extraordinary situation requires a strong sense of individual responsibility. Punctual and scrupulous compliance with the health and hygiene measures set by the authorities is recommended.

Studying in UniTO a.y. 2020-21

As much as possible in presence, as necessary online, to look forward and don’t leave behind anyone. You find all the opportunities that UniTO makes available to students enrolling in the academic year 2020-2021 down below:

 

The activities in presence are subordinated to the respect of procedures laid down by the current Measures Regulation Protocol adopted by the University to contrast and contain the spread out of Covid-19 virus (access with SCU credentials - in Italian language) and of the instructions to access University venues.

 

Lessons

Students can get back in UniTO venues to attend face-to-face classes. You need to visit your degree program website and each course/professor page to find information about face-to-face classes.

Lessons, even if provided in face-to-face mode, are also available in remote mode, live (on Webex platform) or recorded (videos available on Moodle platforms).

You need to book a seat to access to face-to-face lessons using your MyUniTO and following the instructions provided by each professor.

 

Exams

Exams can be taken - based on each professor decision - both in remote and in face-to-face mode. It’s always granted the opportunity to take the exam remotely if students ask for it (if they are considered frail or in case of proven impossibility to reach the exam venue).

 

Final dissertations

Final dissertations can be taken in face-to-face mode if procedures laid down by Measures Regulation Protocol adopted by the University to contrast and contain the spread out of Covid-19 virus (access with SCU credentials - in Italian language) and extensions are respected. In particular, indications about classroom maximum capacity must be respected and only allowed seats must be occupied.

 

Any audience can participate only if indications about occasionally access are respected (they are published on the page Back to UniTO: access to University venues): self-certification for the occasional access to University venues (in Italian) must be filled out and anybody who access to venues must scan the QR Code present in every access point to let tracking their presence in the building, both when entering and exiting.
