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.

Lessons second semester a.y. 2020/21

From Monday 19 of April, we will resume our blended teaching activities.  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 must 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

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. As a rule, the committee is present in the exam room. 

Unibolaurea ceremonies are scheduled to resume in the July summer session.

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 can be carried out remotely. Internal and external curricular internships, for final examinations and professionalisation, will be able to resume only with the authorisation of the Department of which the degree programme is part. For further information, please see the website of your degree programme.  

For post-graduate internships, in addition to the option of starting or continuing activities remotely, Regione Emilia-Romagna allows activities to resume on site, providing that the promoter, the company/host entity and the intern all agree.
