Coronavirus: Information and organization
Evaluation modalities, derogations, Master defenses, and field trips
Please find in this message the latest information about the special measures due to COVID-19 pandemic.
This information are also available on the ELSTE webpage (Students - COVID19)
Concerning the June Exam session 2020, oral and written exams will be held remotely using electronic formats. The same goes for the Master thesis defense using Zoom on June, the 29th and 30th, 2020. Some evaluation modalities had to be modified, these changes are resumed in the document (MasterELSTE_Modif_Eval_Covid 2_EN) on the right.
For the moment, August Exam session 2020 is maintained in face to face, unless an unfavorable evolution of the sanitary situation arises.
Due to this particular situation, UNIL proposes that students who wish to withdraw from the evaluations for the June session may do so until May, the 12th, 2020 by sending me an email. To treat all our students equally, this possibility is also offered to the ELSTE students registered at UNIGE.
Two special derogations are granted to the ELSTE students:
1. The students are allowed to defense their Master thesis in August 2020 session, a joint day is planned on August, 27th, 2020, at UNIGE.
2. If a mandatory or optional teaching of Spring semester 2020 has to be postponed to Spring semester 2021, or if the student retreated from a mandatory or optional teaching of Spring semester 2020 and chose to follow it in Spring semester 2021, this teaching can be validated during the June session 2021 at the same time as the Master thesis.
Concerning the field trips, we do our best to allow those to take place as planned. Nevertheless, this will depend on the evolution of the sanitary conditions and federal guidelines. It is very likely that some of them will have to be postponed to the end of the summer or during the Fall semester. We will communicate the dates and information as soon as possible.
