Coronavirus Update 15: Lessons, Exams and Graduation Sessions in Mixed Mode

coronavirus-exams-lessions-graduation

From the first semester of the academic year 2020-2021, in compliance with the safety protocols aimed at safeguarding and protecting the health of all components of the university community, the teaching activity will take place in mixed mode, i.e. in presence with simultaneous live streaming (online), guaranteeing priority for activities in the presence of new freshmen.

Exams and the final tests for the achievement of qualifications are held both in presence and online.


Safety Fist: Choose How to Attend

The Rector of Tor Vergata University Orazio Schillaci: “It seems just right to give priority to those who already had to face a very particular final school exam and are enrolling in the 1st year thus experiencing their first impact with the university.”

“The programming for students who will attend lessons on site will follow the alphabetical order criterion. We leave it to the students to decide to attend in presence, if programmed, or to follow at a distance (online), if they believe that this mode ensures them greater safety or in the case of students who live outside Rome.”


Exams

The exams can be carried out in person, ensuring the distancing rules and the use of PPE, without prejudice to the possibility of carrying out the same at a distance, according to the assessment of the teacher. The exams can also be held remotely (online), according to the assessment of the teacher.


Graduation Session

For students who were unable to complete their thesis due to the Covid-19 emergency lockdown extraordinary graduation sessions have been set up until September 2020 with full reimbursement of enrollment in the academic year 2019-20.

The final tests for the attainment of the qualifications will take place in presence. A maximum of two accompanying persons for each student will be allowed, guaranteeing safety distance and any other safety measure in relation to the number of undergraduates.

According to the teaching owner’s assessment, the student will have the opportunity to take the exam tests remotely (online).


International and Erasmus Students

International and Erasmus students will be guaranteed the possibility to attend lessons and taking the final exams/tests online.


Laboratories and Complex Instruments

The laboratory managers regulate, through shifts, access to shared laboratories to the various division and allocation of spaces and the creation of obligatory paths and passages, in agreement with the Director of the Department, in compliance with the indications provided in this Protocol and any specific directives issued by the competent Doctor and the Head of the Protection and Prevention Service (RSPP) also regarding the reorganization of spaces.

The head of the laboratory, in agreement with the Director of the Department, prepares a weekly work plan for the technical staff involved in the management of the equipment and / or employed in the service laboratories, keeping in mind that these are work activities that are impossible to carry out remotely and consequently establishing weekly operating days or only in certain daily time bands.

In order to ensure the physical spacing required by regulations, alternative methods must be provided for sample delivery or collection of results, mainly not in person (e.g. results sent by email, sharing of data folders, workstations outside the laboratories to deposit samples). A maximum number of people including the technician who can be present in the laboratory at the same time must be established, in relation to the free surface of the room, the need for movement typical of laboratory work and the instruments present.


Libraries, Reading and Computer Rooms

Since 6 July 2020, the reading rooms inside the libraries have been open for study. Access must be made by reservation and ensuring safety and physical distancing and on the basis of a specific protocol set by the Head of the Protection and Prevention Service in agreement with the library managers.

Access to libraries is by reservation, with a special app, for a limited number of places. The managers of the libraries organize a consultation service for paper documentation, guaranteeing safety and physical distancing, based on parameters similar to those adopted for research laboratories.

A control service will be guaranteed for the management of any gatherings in the reading rooms. Access to the computer rooms must also be made by reservation and guaranteeing security and physical distancing, on the basis of parameters similar to those adopted for research laboratories.

YUFE selected to create one of the first European Universities

yufe

Young Universities for the Future of Europe (YUFE) is one of just 17 alliances of European universities selected by the European Commission to develop and implement the first models for a European University.

The YUFE alliance presented its vision to the European Commission earlier this year and has now been given the go ahead to implement it.

Professor Martin Paul, Chair of the YUFE alliance and President of Maastricht University, which leads the consortium, said: “Our alliance, including eight young universities, will build the first European University of the future that is open to anyone.”

“Our European University will provide students with the skills they need to be highly employable and will offer truly European career paths to all members of society. In doing so, the YUFE European University will strengthen our collective identity and contribute to a more cohesive European society.”

The foundations for this European University will be laid in the next three years.


The YUFE vision

Studying throughout Europe

The YUFE European University will enable prospective students to compile their curricula, choosing from programmes offered at each of the eight YUFE universities. To allow access to all systems and facilities of these universities, the alliance will introduce a YUFE student card, valid at all participating universities.

The official language of YUFE study programmes is English, but students who spend a period at a university in another country are encouraged and supported to learn the language oftheir host country. When they have successfully completed their studies, students receive a European diploma that will be valid anywhere in Europe.

The diploma will not only acknowledge students’ academic performance, but also acknowledge their effort in mobility, language learning, professional training, job shadowing and community volunteering.

Feeling at home in the YUFE cities

To guarantee accessibility for as many students as possible, YUFE is preparing to set up a virtual European campus. Part-time students or interested citizens who want to follow a single virtual or physical course can also make use of the YUFE offer.

For full-time students studying at one of the partner universities elsewhere in Europe, YUFE will develop housing solutions that facilitate cultural exchange, mutual support and integration with the local community. For example, an option YUFE is considering is furnishing special homes where students can live for free during their stay and in close proximity with local residents.

They will be given the opportunity to contribute to the community in their neighbourhood, and to foster a culture of mutual support in all YUFE cities and communities.

YUFE students will be immediately immersed in the local and regional society and will thus be the catalyst for further European integration.


Regional focus and impact

The YUFE programme itself pays a lot of attention to the specific regions in which the eight YUFE universities are located. When it comes to internships, for example, every university will work together with local authorities, the business community and other organisations.

These collaborations are based on challenges that are of great importance to the YUFE regions. In Limburg, for example, the region of the coordinating institution Maastricht University, the Brightlandsecosystem will be an excellent setting to implement the joint YUFE approach.

In Cyprus, students will contribute to the development of more efficient public transport in the capital Nicosia. In Essex (UK), YUFE projects will contribute to solving socio-economic disadvantage in a post-industrial region.

Dr Daniela Trani and Jan Hupkens, coordinators of the YUFE-alliance, said: “In this way, YUFE education provides a European mind-set for students, enabling them to view matters from different perspectives and allows the various regions and their residents to benefit from this exchange of knowledge across Europe.”


European integration

Professor Paul said: “The selection of the YUFE proposal represents an important milestone for our alliance and we are keen to contribute to a unique momentum in European higher education.

Together with our partners we will develop a shared vision for European higher education and contribute to creating a bright future for all European citizens, regions and countries.

🔎 About YUFE

The Young Universities for the Future of Europe (YUFE) allianceis a major strategic partnership established between eight young research-intensive universities from as many European countries.

The YUFE alliance, together with its six associate partners, aims at bringing a radical change in European higher education by establishing itself as the leading model of a young, student-centred, non-elitist, open and inclusive European University.

A unique ecosystem linking universities to communities, YUFE will be based on cooperation between higher education institutions, the public and private sector, and citizens across Europe.

Tuition fees at the University of Rome Tor Vergata for the AY 2018/2019 will be based on the student’s family income.

International students’ family income can only be certified by the Italian Diplomatic Authorities (local Consulate or local Embassy). Once the proper documentation is submitted to the Italian Diplomatic Authority, it will provide the student with the certified documents that need to be brought to any CAF Office (Italian Tax Service Centres) after arriving in Rome.

At the following link you can check what documents are needed for such certification: Scheda Raccolta Dati.pdf

The CAF office will deliver to the student the ISEEU module necessary to then determine the student’s yearly tuition fee amount.

Not submitting the ISEEU to the University will imply for the student the payment based on the maximum rate of the yearly fee of the course (80% of the maximum rate for the students coming from low-income economies or lower-middle-income economies; 100% of the maximum rate for all the other international students).

Please note, we strongly suggest even students awarded with scholarships submit the ISEEU certification.
