All examinations and assessments at University Departments and Centres will take place in distance mode, except for laboratory assessments. Measures have been adopted to ensure that students with a disability or special needs can take examinations in distance mode; where such measures are not sufficient, these students can obtain an authorisation to sit examinations in a University building, in agreement with the Rector’s delegate for disability support (Rector's decree of 6 November 2020).

Graduations and doctoral thesis defences

Graduations and doctoral thesis defences take place online in a way to ensure impartiality and equality. The results will be published, as required by law. The presence of at least one member of the graduation committee in the department is no longer required (Rector's decree of 6 November 2020).

icona tirocini INTERNSHIPS


The internships can be carried out remotely or with a blended formula or in presence based on the availability and needs of the host institution and following sharing of the training project by the company and university tutors. However, university invites to prefer the remote way. It is also possible, compatibly with the availability and needs of the host institution, to reactivate in a mixed formula or in presence the internship suspended or that had been placed in smart working, or alternatively continue with the measures already adopted. In order for the internship to be activated or resumed in a blended formula or in the presence, the host organization must ensure that it has adopted a safety protocol for the COVID-19 epidemic. For more information please read our FAQs in the download box.

In red zones (areas where the situation is more serious and there is a high risk of exposure to coronavirus), all face-to-face internships that have already started or are about to start are either suspended or switched to remote mode, in agreement with the host organization.

Internships abroad can take place in face to face mode, in mixed mode, or in remote mode, based on the restrictions implemented in the country of the host organization. Host organizations must adopt a Covid-19 health and safety protocol to be able to offer internships in mixed or face to face mode.

When students cannot continue or start an internship, the Director of the relevant department or centre can adopt measures to identify alternative activities with which students can achieve their learning outcomes and earn the relevant university credits.
Internships offered by the University can start or resume. These internships must be authorised, and interns may remain at University premises only for the time necessary to perform their work (Rector's decree of 6 November 2020).
