Information for international students in UniMC

COVID-19 Phase 2: For information on general policies and measures implemented by the Italian government at the national level, please see the English version of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs FAQ page.

In the Province of Macerata social distancing practices are still in place and everyone is required to wear a mask at all times when leaving their homes.

Starting on May 4th 2020, throughout the Province of Macerata public parks, bike paths, hiking trails and certain sports centers are open. Individual outdoor physical activity is allowed only under the following conditions:

  1. Everyone is required to carry a mask with them at all times and put it on immediately when in close proximity to others.
  2. A safe distance from other people must be maintained at all times with at least 2 meters between others while jogging and at least 1 meter while walking.

Using public and private transportation to reach areas for personal recreational activity is permittted. All team sports and group gatherings are still strictly prohibited.

As part of a gradual repeal of certain measures some restaurants will be offering take-away service with orders placed exclusively by phone or via social media. When the order is placed an appointment will be made to pick up the food. When picking up their order the customer is required to wear a mask and gloves, maintain a safe distance from other people at all times and eating in front of the restaurant is prohibited. The food can be consumed outdoors in public areas while keeping a safe distance from others and without forming groups. Other types of businesses may also begin to open as conditions permit.

With regard to international students, due to the continuously evolving global Coronavirus emergency, the consequent limitation or cancellation of academic activities at partner universities and the provisions of the European Commission the following policies have been adopted specifically for exchange students who are currently at UniMC.

International Students Wanting to go back to their home Country or called back by their home University

You may return to your home country following specific rules for foreign nationals in Italy indicated on the Italian Foreign Ministry FAQ page. In addition, carefully check travel restrictions and border closures before you buy any travel tickets and verify that all trains, buses and flights that you may use to travel are confirmed as operational.

Furthermore, according to the decree issued by the Italian government, inter-regional travel throughout Italy is permitted only for proven work-related, medical or otherwise urgent reasons. All such travel must be justified using the self-certification form found in the Download Box on this page. Everyone who is able should continue to study or work from home. If you do not have an urgent need to leave please stay at home.

International Students wanting to stay at UniMC

You are welcome to stay in Macerata and continue your UniMC courses and exams online.

Should you need to change your Learning Agreement, send us any modification request forms even if they are not yet signed by your home university and we will insert the courses so you can access the online platforms.

Furthermore, according to the decree issued by the Italian government, inter-regional travel throughout Italy is permitted only for proven work-related, medical or otherwise urgent reasons. All such travel must be justified using the self-certification form found in the Download Box on this page. Everyone who is able should continue to study or work from home. If you do not have an urgent need to leave please stay at home.

Future Incoming International Students

According to indications from the Italian government and the European Commission, all incoming and outgoing exchanges have been cancelled until further notice.

We are accepting incoming student nominations and applications for the Fall 2020 semester and full academic year 2020-2021. The majority of courses at UniMC during the Fall 2020 semester will only be offered on-line, with the limited possibility of a mix of on-line and traditional lectures for those students who are able to arrive in Macerata. It remains to be seen whether certain national and international travel restrictions will still apply at the end of the Summer as a consequence of the ongoing COVID-19 emergency. Students who cannot travel due to continued restrictions may be able to participate in their exchange by enrolling in UniMC on-line courses from their home country. We will provide further updates as soon as possible.

As an alternative, for a full study abroad experience we invite students to postpone their mobility to UniMC to the Spring semester starting in February 2021.
