Attendance to lectures, exercises and practical laboratory activities is mandatory. The student cannot exceed the limit of 30% of absences for the linguistic disciplines. Exceeding this threshold of absences prevents the student from admitting to the exams or validating the tests in progress. For the non-linguistic disciplines there is no obligation to attend, even if it is strongly recommended.
Admission to the exam is responsibility of the professors. Working-students are exempted from the obligation to attend. A working student is defined as someone who carries out a work activity both subordinate and autonomous, documented and noticed to the School.
To allow effective teaching, even in the context of the Covid-19 emergency, the School has decided to invest in cutting-edge digital facilities to equip the classrooms so that the student, unable for any reason to attend in person, can follow from home the lessons live, interacting with teachers and colleagues or even reviewing the recording of the lesson at a later time.
In addition, protocols have been developed which, taking into account all the rules envisaged to protect the health of Students and Teachers, will allow students to follow in-person classes in complete safety.
The advantages of attendance
The acquisition of high linguistic competence requires constant work. By attending the courses, therefore, the students can:
- have consistency in their studies
- keep in direct contact with the teachers, always available for questions and clarifications regarding classes and exams
- establish a relationship of collaboration and friendship with the other students
- participate to study groups activities and projects
- compare themselves with other students to better study for exams
- share experiences and ideas
