The Department of Psychology and Cognitive Science underlines that class attendance is fundamental for effective learning. It however receives the University guidelines on teaching arrangements for students who are unable to attend, based on which faculty members make themselves available to: 

  1. meet with the students one or more times, mainly online, during the semester;
  2. provide materials online for the students who are unable to attend a significant number of classes; these may include class recordings and in particular the recording of those classes that provide the theoretical background of the subject, that introduce the subject or that are aimed at creating connections between the different topics covered in the course;
  3. announce their office hours (including for online meetings) at the beginning of the course and update them in case of changes;
  4. provide a schedule of oral exams for the exam day(s).

As a rule, exams are in person at University premises. Students who are exempt from attending in person will sit the written part of the exam and may arrange with the faculty to take the oral part remotely.

If you need to be absent from your studies, fill out the 

and provide the requested information on the reason for absence and the classes or courses you will not be able to attend. Remember that the University will verify the information you provided. You will receive a confirmation email at your university email address. Faculty members may ask you at any time to provide the confirmation email as proof of your circumstances.

Your exemption from attendance expires at the end of the semester. If you will still be unable to attend in the following semester, view your course timetable and fill out the form again.

Information for non-attending students can be found in Moodle. Where that is not the case, contact the lecturer of the course after having submitted the form.
