COVID-19

Coronavirus

After the summer, collective teaching and curricular activities will be carried out in face-to-face mode, in full compliance with safety standards and under close monitoring of the development of the epidemiological situation.

Due to the limited capacity of the classrooms, all teaching activities will still continue to be provided remotely as well, in order to guarantee the right to study of those students who cannot be present.

Until otherwise specified, the following regulations will remain in place:

  1. Social distancing
  2. Thorough hand-washing and proper personal hygiene precautions
  3. Constant use of masks in indoor spaces
  4. Careful disinfection of the academic environment and surfaces
  5. Adequate ventilation in indoor spaces
  6. Availability of effective information and communication.

Should the epidemiological situation worsen, more restrictive regulations will be issued by Rectoral Decree.

Profit exams will take place in face-to-face mode, in compliance with social distancing, classroom capacity and the relevant COVID-19 Safety Protocol, upon compilation of the online self-certification for each exam.

In case of written examinations, due to an excessive number of students compared to the capacity of the available classrooms, the examinations can take place remotely.
