Information about attending lectures in presence safely and online lectures.

Presente - the service that allows you to specify how you prefer to attend classes

You can use the “Presente” service to schedule your classes, specifying the attendance mode you prefer, in person or online.

Even if you are not yet enrolled, you can log in to the new “Presente” service, using your credentials (, to schedule classes for each course unit, specifying the attendance mode you prefer.

You can specify your preference, which will be valid for the following two weeks, and you must do this by the Thursday before the beginning of the two week period.

On Fridays, the attendance mode for each course chosen will be displayed.  

Should there still be places available in the room, you will be able to add your name to attend the class in person even after the scheduling deadline has expired.

If, for a specific course unit, the requests to attend in person exceed classroom capacity, students will be divided into two groups, each of which will attend one of the two weeks in person, and the other week in online mode.
If you are no longer able to attend a class in person, remember to cancel your name and to check Presente every day to be informed of any changes regarding teaching methods.

For all course units that also allow for attendance in person, it is important that you specify how you intend to attend the classes, even if you choose the online mode.

If you do not specify how you intend to attend the classes, you will still be able to attend them online.

In addition to choosing your course units on Presente, you will also be required to fill in your study plan.

We recommend logging in to “Presente" regularly, to check for messages on the schedule for the following days.

Attending classes online - How to join a virtual classroom

For each of the course units a virtual classroom has been set up where you can attend the lessons.

The virtual classroom can be accessed from the “Online lessons” button that you can find in the course unit area:

  • on the “Course timetable” page on the Degree Programme website;
  • on the “Teaching” page on the teacher’s website;
  • on the course unit programme page, which can be accessed from the course structure diagram.

In both cases, clicking on the "Online lessons" button will display a page asking you which mode you want to use Teams in:

How do you want to join your Teams meeting?


We recommend that you always use the app by choosing the "app desktop" option, as it offers more features than the web version. If you decide to use the web option, which does not require installation, you will have to use Chrome.

Microsoft Teams is also available for Mac OS X computers and for Android and IOS mobile devices.

Once Teams has started, you will be presented with a screen like the one below.

Important: you will have to select the option “For a better experience Sign In” (at the bottom of the page), do not click on “Join now” because you would then be an external guest and external guests are not allowed for online lessons.

Teams access


At this point you will be asked to enter your credentials and you can access the virtual classroom.

Please keep your webcams and microphones switched off so that lectures can be delivered in an orderly manner without disturbances and overloading of the system.

Protection of data in audio and video recordings of lessons and exams

Videos/images featuring students, teachers or other subjects during an exam or a lesson are considered by the current legislation to be “personal data” that must be protected in accordance with the applicable regulations. The following document contains some useful information on how to ensure their protection.
