Planning of educational activities first semester a.y. 2020/21

Dear students of the Faculty of Banking, Financial and Insurance Sciences,

The new academic year 2020/21 will soon begin.

So here I am once again, sharing with you some information regarding teaching activities for the next semester. As you  know, classes will begin on September 7. Lectures will be delivered  according to the modalities that I have already presented you in the video below. In particular, our Faculty aims at returning to classroom activities, if circumstances allow, in order to encourage direct student-teacher interaction. In fact, most of the lectures will be delivered on campus, while also allowing students to attend the aforementioned lectures streamed if they prefer this option. The rest of the lectures will be delivered remotely, according to the indications provided by each professor/lecturer.

As indicated in the University FAQ, to attend classes on campus, each group will be divided into smaller groups. The attendance calendar of the groups will be communicated - through the personal ICatt page or the ICatt app - every Thursday for the lessons scheduled in the following week. The rotation will be on a daily basis, from Monday to Friday (e.g. in case of subdivision into 3 groups: day 1 group 1, day 2 group 2, day 3 group 3, day 4 group 1, etc.).

Over the next few days (a specific communication will follow on ICatt), students will be able to communicate their intention, which can be modified during the semester, not to attend on campus the lectures scheduled in the first semester (for the whole period or on specific dates); hence, the vacant places will be made available to the students belonging to the other groups.

I wish you a successful beginning of the academic year 2020/21.

Sincerely yours,

Elena Beccalli

Dean of the Faculty of Banking, Financial and Insurance Sciences
