Dear students,

We hope you are looking forward to starting your studies at VIU during the 1st Semester 2020-2021. 
We start on Monday, September 7, 2020, with our Virtual Orientation Week.

Safety protocols and emergency planning are being finalized with the support of VIU’s Health and Safety consultants and will be published on this website, and sent to you by email before courses start on campus. The protocols will provide for safe access to VIU including the classrooms and offices.

In the meantime, please make sure that you are up-to-date about deadlines for course registration, which courses will be available only online, how to sign up for Virtual Exchange, accommodation information, how to get a travel card in Venice, and so on.

The effects of the Covid-19 crisis are still influencing many aspects of our everyday lives. Although there are is still uncertainty hovering over the coming months, the education sector is proving to be resilient.  The VIU staff is working hard to ensure that the next semester of the Globalization Program is as much as possible as it used to be, but with added flexibility for students and professors, while introducing innovation to the teaching.
