2020-2021 Academic Year's lectures will be delivered in-person but students may attend remotely. Examinations and graduation sessions will continue in-person and online

[Page updated on September 24, 2020, at 7:30 pm] 

Lectures – in-person or online - will start from September 28, according to the calendar published on our course catalogue, in the “Attendance” section of each course. Go to the catalogue.

Professor will be delivering all their lectures, scheduled for the first semester of 2020-21, in-person, and students will be able to follow them both in-person, compatibly with the necessary security measures, and through online live sessions (synchronous mode). Sapienza guarantees the longest possible period of in-person lectures for all its students, regardless of the year of enrolment.

For security reasons, the structure may plan to seat you in order of arrival (and therefore in a different place from the one booked): do not worry, the seat you booked is still guaranteed.

Teaching and Learning 2020-21

Students who cannot attend in person – including international and off-campus students – can attend remotely.
