The face-to-face activities will take place in premises and classrooms equipped in compliance with the safety requirements imposed for the COVID emergency and with the rules adopted by the University of Macerata for teaching. If, due to exceptional events, the coronavirus emergency arises, it is not possible to carry out the lessons in presence in the designated locations, these will be held electronically with the technological platforms of the University of Macerata, the same didactic contents and reshaping the programming time to facilitate attendance and make the most of the potential of the platforms used.

Internships in smart working and in presence outside the University are authorized in entities that have taken all the necessary measures to minimize the risk of proximity and aggregation.
