INFORMAZIONI per gli studenti

For contact tracing purposes, we remind all the members of the University community (teaching staff, technical-administrative staff, any other type of staff, and students) that they are strongly advised to notify the University’s Covid-19 contact person (RUC), Dr. Debora Brocco (tel: +39 045-8027683; mob.348-7337833; email: debora.brocco@univr.it), of any quarantine due to close contact with a confirmed case, or isolation for confirmed cases. Please stay at home if you experience any symptoms related to Covid-19.


Information for students

The University has ensured that all students can continue and complete their studies, take part in their graduation sessions, and take their exams

Teaching activities for Bachelor’s, Master’s, and Single cycle/Combined Bachelor+Master’s degrees

As regards lectures taught as part of Bachelor’s, Master’s, and Single cycle/Combined Bachelor+Master’s degrees, in view of the need to continue to ensure social distancing (at least 1 metre between the attending people), the methods and provisions set out in the "General guidelines for the provision of teaching - A.Y. 2020-2021" (resolution of the Academic Senate of 27 July 2020) adopted for Semester 2 are hereby confirmed, provided that the number of attending people does not exceed 50% of the normal room capacity, and that the previously communicated safety measures on devices, social distancing and hand hygiene measures are always complied with.

Teaching activities will therefore be carried out following the guidelines set out in the University’s Covid-19 Task Force Update of 1 February 2021. All practical teaching activities shall continue to be held on site.

Students wishing to attend in-person lectures at the University are hereby advised that they will need to book their place in advance via the UNIVR Lezioni app, or through the relevant online platform (please see: https://www.univr.it/it/app-univr-lezioni). Once you have booked your seat in the classroom via the UNIVR Lezioni app or on the web, you can sit on any available place (please only take numbered seats). Once you have taken your seat, please remember to register your seat number via the app or on the web. Please note that entering the correct seat number is important to enable contact tracing, should a person on site test positive.

Students with special needs (e.g. students with disabilities and/or Specific Learning Disorder - SLD/learning disabilities) shall always be supported in their learning. The Inclusion and Accessibility Unit shall therefore continue to organise in-person activities for these students, including with the support of tutors, on its premises.

Professional Master’s programmes, advanced and professional development courses

Concerning these courses, the same rules of hygiene and social distancing apply as for Degree programmes, subject to the following additional requirement: since these students will not be able to access the UNIVR Lezioni App to book their place in the classroom, it will be up to the responsible lecturer to carefully record each attending student and their seat number.

Exams

Exams may be held on site (in-person exams) for students in all years of study. However, they must be able to take exams at a distance if they wish to do so, upon providing the responsible lecturer with a valid Covid-related reason. Special attention should be given to students with disabilities and/or Specific Learning Disorder - SLD/learning disabilities, as well as to international students. In the case of in-person written examinations, the maximum possible number of students should be allowed to attend, provided that the total number of attending people does not exceed 50% of the normal room capacity. In the case of in-person oral examinations, these must be organised on the basis of a timetable and a schedule that ensures compliance with the room capacity, on the basis of the number of seats available, and avoids gatherings. In both cases, the responsible lecturer must ensure that the classroom is properly aired, opening windows at least twice a day where possible; if possible, windows should be kept open or half-open during the exams.

From April 2021, when registering for an exam, you will be also provided with information regarding the type of exam (P = in-person exam, and D = online exam).
If the exam in question is to be carried out on site, you will be able to request to take it remotely from home (RD).
PLEASE NOTE:  if you wish to take the exam remotely from home (RD), you will need to enter your request on ESSE3 at the time of registering. Moreover, you will need to send a request to your responsible lecturer by email, since no notifications will be automatically sent to the lecturer from ESSE3.
To find out more: How to register for online and in-person exams.

Off-site visits and guided tours

Off-site visits and guided tours are permitted, as they are regarded as workshop activities.

When organising these activities, the responsible lecturer must take all necessary steps to prevent the virus from spreading. If compliance with these measures cannot be ensured, the activity in question shall not take place.

Internships

Internships (University- or company internships, in progress or about to be started) for students in all years of study, including extracurricular ones, may be carried out on site, without the need to obtain authorisation from the tutor (Academic Tutor in the case of University internships, or Company Tutor in the case of company internships), in accordance with the protocols set out in Annexes 18 and 22 of the Prime Ministerial Decree of 2 March 2021, for University internships, and based on company protocols in accordance with Annex 12 of the Prime Ministerial Decree of 2 March 2021, in the case of external internships.

Graduation and final exams (for Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees, PhD programmes, Professional Master’s programmes, advanced and professional development courses, and Postgraduate specialisation courses)

Graduation and final exams for these courses shall take place on site on all the University’s premises, provided that the relevant health measures and social distancing rules are always complied with. As a result, the room or exam venue in question and the relevant external spaces must be large enough to ensure social distancing (at least 1 metre between the attending people), based on the number of people on site. Graduation and final exams shall be held following the relevant University’s guidelines (“VADEMECUM PER LE SESSIONI DI LAUREA/DIPLOMA”). Students wishing to take the exam remotely should be allowed to do so, as long as they provide the Chair of the Graduation Committee with a valid Covid-related reason for doing so.

Study spaces

At present, users are not required to hold a ‘Covid-19 green pass’ to access these spaces. However, as previously announced, these spaces are only available to students and university users, provided that the public health measures in force are always complied with.

In all Study spaces and Computer rooms social distancing measures and all public health measures in force must be complied with at all times.

Libraries

University users only will be allowed to access the University Libraries’ premises, upon reservation, and up to the maximum number of attending people allowed. Please note that the available room capacity in our libraries has been reduced, so as to ensure social distancing (please see: https://www.univr.it/it/avviso/-/avviso/149902).

Seminars and events

In accordance with the new decree, from 6 August 2021, only those holding a valid ‘Covid-19 green pass’ (vaccination, proof of recovery, or recent negative test result) will be able to attend conferences and seminars. The measures set out in Prime Ministerial Decree of 2 March 2021 shall remain in force from 1 August to 31 December 2021, in agreement with Annex A of Regional Decree no. 83/2021. For further information, please see the University’s “Guidelines on conferences and events to be held at the University”, updated on 28 July 2021.

Public events

In accordance with Legislative Decree no. 105/2021, in the white and yellow areas, for any events open to the public in theatres, concert halls, cinemas, entertainment and live music venues and in other venues or spaces, including open-air venues, seats must be booked in advance, and a distance of at least one metre between people not in the same household and for staff must be ensured at all times. Access will only be permitted to those who hold a ‘Covid-19 green pass’. The measures set out in Prime Ministerial Decree of 2 March 2021 shall remain in force from 1 August to 31 December 2021, in agreement with Annex A of Regional Decree no. 83/2021. For further information, please see the University’s “Guidelines on conferences and events to be held at the University”, updated on 28 July 2021.

It should be noted that the pandemic is unfortunately not yet declining rapidly, so the University's effort to resume in-person teaching activities, as far as possible, and to allow students to use study spaces, albeit with the appropriate restrictions, must go hand in hand with a great sense of responsibility - from students and members of staff - in following the public health measures that were frequently recommended to reduce the risk of infection (wearing a face mask, ensuring social distancing, cleaning hands, booking a place in the classroom and recording the seat number, etc..), both inside and outside the University’s premises and buildings. Please note: this also applies to vaccinated people.

Finally, we hereby remind all the members of the University community (teaching staff, technical-administrative staff, any other type of staff, and students) that they are strongly advised to notify the University’s Covid-19 contact person (RUC), Dr. Debora Brocco (tel: +39 045-8027683; mob.348-7337833; email: debora.brocco@univr.it), of any quarantine due to close contact with a confirmed case, or isolation for confirmed cases. Please stay at home if you experience any symptoms related to Covid-19.
