Lessons, Exams, Internships

Blended teaching activities also during the first semester of the 2021/22 a.y.

Regardless of the developments of the COVID-19 health emergency, to ensure students can continue their normal study activities, the University of Bologna will offer blended teaching activities also during the first semester of the 2021/22 academic year.

All degree programme lectures will therefore be held both in classrooms and online.

This, of course, will not prevent the possibility for students to continue attending their classes online. However, by booking their seat in the classrooms, students who wish to attend lectures in person will be able to do so regardless of their enrolment year.  

Students will have to use the App Presente to check seat availability in the classrooms and to receive updates from professors in case of changes to the lectures and their mode of delivery. Students should book a seat in class only if they are sure to attend that lecture in person and cancelling their booking as soon as any hindrance arises. 

In-presence lectures are held in compliance with applicable regulations and safety protocols

Green COVID-19 certification

From 1 September to 31 December 2021, students will be required to have the green COVID-19 certification in order to participate in teaching and curricular activities. The mandatory COVID-19 green certification does not apply to those who are exempt from the vaccination campaign on the basis of appropriate medical certification issued according to the criteria defined by the Ministry of Health.

Said obligation involves all in-presence teaching and curricular activities – for example, lectures, exams, laboratory work, internships, final dissertation sessions, tutoring and meetings with teachers, and any connected activities, including but not limited to access to libraries, study rooms, laboratories, events, exhibitions, conferences, etc.

The procedures for verifying possession of the COVID-19 green certification will be communicated as soon as available.

The validity of COVID-19 green certificates is checked randomly using the VerifcaC-19 national app.

Exam

From Monday 19 of April, both written and oral exams can be taken either in person or online, depending on the mode chosen by the teacher, but it will always be possible to take the exams online.

Instructions for taking online exams

Final examinations

Final examinations return to their usual in-presence format but are also guaranteed online. When required by the situation, departments and degree programmes, together with Logistics and Teaching Service Units, will adopt organizational solutions in line with safety and social distancing regulations.

When a final examination is taken in person, access to the exam room will be reserved to the exam committee, the graduates scheduled to take their examination on that day, and their dissertation supervisors.

Each venue will assess whether there are the conditions to allow a limited number of guests for each graduate to attend in person. On request, all guests will need to show a Covid-19 green certificate, or a medical exemption certificate. As a rule, the committee is present in the exam room. 

Teacher office hours

Students should be received preferably online. They may be received in presence only for good reasons. In these cases, teachers will plan appointments with individual students in advance.

Internships

In line with the provisions regarding lectures, curricular internships and internships for final examination and professional training, internal and external, may be carried out in presence, remotely and in blended format, following the instructions provided by the relevant degree programme and Department. For further information, please see the website of your degree programme

Regione Emilia-Romagna allows postgraduate internships to take place in presence, remotely and in blended format, providing that the promoter, the company/host entity, and the intern all agree.
