Coronavirus Update 9: Erasmus+, Traineeship and Overseas programs suspended

Coronavirus Update 9: Erasmus+, Traineeship and Overseas programs suspended

In compliance with the new ministerial and regional provisions aimed at limiting the spread of COVID-19 due to the exponential growth of the infections in all the countries of Europe and the consequent difficulties in moving between European countries and in particular to return to Italy, we recommend that you follow these instructions promptly.


Mobility suspended until April 3rd

All international incoming and outgoing mobility that should have started in these days are suspended until April 3rd. We invite students to contact the partner universities to reschedule the mobility and related activities by reviewing the teaching periods and content.

It will be possible to request the application of the “force majeure” to the  National Agency, (in terms that will be subsequently communicated) , and reimbursement of expenses for all those mobility that are cancelled due to the emergency situation and to the measures of the competent authorities.

Students of Tor Vergata University of Rome who are at partner institutions abroad as part of student mobility programs are invited to scrupulously follow the provisions on prevention and safety prescribed by the institutions by monitoring the health situation of the Host Country through the appropriate country sheet on the “Viaggiare Sicuri” website of the Farnesina (http://www.viaggiaresicuri.it).


Follow Restrictive Measures

Should there be an exponential growth of the infections or in any case a situation of difficulty of the local health structures, students are invited to return to Italy with any possible urgency at their residence, home or domicile.

Students are also invited to take into account the possible restrictive measures in terms of mobility established by the DPCM of 8 and 9 and 11 March 2020 (http://www.governo.it/it/articolo/coronavirus-conte-firma-il-dpcm-11-marzo-2020/14299) and to carefully follow the indications prescribed by the same DPCM, (in particular for subjects with symptoms of respiratory infection and fever greater than 37.5 ° stay at home, limit social contacts and contact your doctor and absolute ban on leaving your home for those subjected to the quarantine measure or positive for the virus).


Students in Foreign Countries

In all cases, we ask students who are in a foreign country to promptly report their presence to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, by registering on the site “Where we are in the world” (https://www.dovesiamonelmondo.it/dovemondo/scuole) to be able to benefit from the assistance of our Diplomatic Representations abroad (embassies, consulates etc.) in the event of difficulties in returning to Italy.

We remind you that the “force majeure” reasons will be applied to reimbursement of the costs incurred and that the Italian embassies and consulates will be able to offer you all the necessary support.
