Distance Exam and Graduation Sessions

This is a temporary provision, until the end of the state of emergency and/or the issuing of new provisions

 

Due to the epidemiologic emergency from CoViD-19 and following the approval of a specific Regulation having temporary effect, the University of Teramo aims at regulating as a matter of urgency how to perform via the Internet (1) the final examinations necessary to achieve a Bachelor’s/Master’s/Single-Cycle Degree; (2) and the exams, including those of the so-called “single classes”.

 

This is to allow all teaching/learning activities to be carried out on the one hand, but limiting the copresence of too many people in the same place at the same time on the other. With “via the Internet” we mean that all the teaching/learning activities – i.e. classes, exam and graduation sessions – shall be performed by means of a specific online platform named Google Meet and made available by this University. The necessary information to perform distance exam and graduation sessions is given below.
