TheENGLISH TOLC-F@CASA test is carried out on the computer and allows to participate in any selection for which the ENGLISH TOLC-F@CASA is required: it is not necessary, therefore, to support it at the same location of the course of your interest.

Online Graduation Tutorial

Online Graduation Tutorial

This is a quick guide for those students who will graduate online. Before you start remember to:

– not to invite other people in the room during your online graduation.
– deactivate your microphone and camera while other candidates are being examinated.
– email a copy of your presentation (.pdf or .ppt formats) at least one day prior to your graduation exam session so that the Commission can read it in case of technical problems.

Download Microsoft Teams

The software necessary to participate in the online degree session is the Microsoft Teams platform. To participate in the session it is not necessary to have a specific account, however for a better user experience it is recommended to download and install the Desktop version of Microsoft Teams (Download here).

For a better use of the platform it is recommended to use a laptop or desktop computer, equipped with video camera and microphone. We also recommend using the Chrome or Edge browsers.


Session Convocation

The Commission will send both a personal and an institutional email with the announcement of the graduation session containing the necessary  information and with the references to contact if technical problems arise.

N.B: None – other than the graduating student – is allowed to participate in the session.

The candidate can use various features by clicking on the buttons of the bar:

• activate / deactivate the camera;

• show participants the screen of their computer (for example to show one
PowerPoint presentation);
• open the chat to write to the Commission or receive replies.

In particular, through the meeting chat it is possible to interact with the Commission without interfering with the graduation session.

We ask for the maximum collaboration from the candidate in following the instructions of the Commission in order to allow a correct development of the graduation session.

Valid ID‘s include identity card, passport, driving license, nautical license, pension booklet, license to run thermal plants, firearms license, identification cards as long as they are provided of photograph and stamp or other equivalent signature, issued by a state administration.

If you want to run a PowerPoint presentation, you can use the Share (Condividi) function present in the button bar

Coronavirus Update 5: Country Lockdown

Coronavirus Update 5: Country Lockdown

The Decree of 9 March 2020 (DPCM 9 Marzo 2020) introduces further measures regarding the containment and management of the epidemiological emergency from COVID-19. These measures demand all of us to take radically change our lifestyle and ways of working embracing the imposed rules with common sense.

Also in our territory, the Decree extends the suspension of in class teaching and curricular activities until April 3, 2020.


Medical and health courses excluded

The decree excludes from the suspension the courses for doctors in specialist training, and the activities of trainees of the health professions who, as regards those carried out at the Policlinico Tor Vergata, have suffered limitations imposed by the Health Department.

Students of all health professions, with the exception of the third year of the degree course in Nursing, can continue their activities at all medical and surgical facilities with the exception of the emergency room.


Research

Please note that all research activities are not suspended and that administrative offices are open with some limitations of reception to the public, while still guaranteeing remote assistance.


Administrative Staff

Since the DPCM does not mention the suspension of work activities therefore there are no restrictions in reaching offices and work places.

Tor Vergata University has authorized the application of smart-work for members of the administrative, technical and libraries staff if compatible with the needs of the service.


Online Lessons

Teaching activities (lessons, doctoral exams and degree exams) will be carried out, up until April 3, 2020, in online mode, so that the educational path of all students is not further affected.


Exams

Exams already scheduled are suspended until April 3, 2020.


Office Hours / Appointments

In office appointments and office hours for all students are suspended and will be carried out exclusively online.


Public Tender / Open Competitions / Concorsi

All open competitions procedures are suspended with the exception of those in which the assessment of candidates is carried out exclusively on curricular basis or online.

Public competitions for health personnel are excluded from suspension, including state examinations and qualification to practice as a surgeon.


A painful choice

We are aware that closing libraries and study rooms, as well as postponing conferences, congresses, meetings and events of any nature, represents a painful choice.

What we are doing today is the consequence of an emergency which we must face with discipline, sense of duty and common sense, in order to be able to return to our respective training and work paths as soon as possible.


Saving lives

A thought of deep respect and gratitude to our doctors, nurses, trainees and trainees in the medical area who, like their colleagues throughout Italy, are committed daily to save the lives of our loved ones.
