Online proclamation ceremonies

Since last spring, the University has adopted all the necessary solutions to give continuity to the students' academic path despite the restrictions due to COVID-19 with, for example, lessons via eLearning, online exams and thesis defences in videoconferencing. The degree award ceremony is no exception: USI has decided to offer an interactive online ceremony to celebrate the end of graduates' studies during this period of confinement, which unfortunately does not allow the traditional ceremony in the Aula Magna. USI is aware that the online ceremony cannot fully replace the one in attendance. New graduates and their loved ones are therefore invited to celebrate this important milestone during USI twenty-fifth anniversary (XXV Dies academicus, 8 May 2021, Palazzo dei Congressi, Lugano).
