Status: December 8, 2021
Winter 2022 exam session in person
Winter exam session will be in person, from 14 January to 5 February 2022.
The COVID certificate or the cantonal certificate provided in one of the UNIL test centres (see below) will be required to enter the rooms where the exams are held. Students who do not have either the certificate or the cantonal attestation will not be able to take the exams. This is a requirement of the cantonal regulations to which we are subject. These people would find themselves in a situation of unjustified absence, and therefore failure of the test in question.
Quarantine constitutes a just reason for the withdrawal of one or more exams, as explained in a directive from the Directorate available online (in French). In some cases, alternative solutions foreseen in the Faculty regulations, such as the possibility of a retake, will avoid that it costs the affected students a semester or even a year. If nothing of the sort exists, the faculties concerned will apply ad hoc solutions.
Protection Plan for teaching and wearing of face masks
The Vaud State Council adapted its measures to combat COVID by means of a new cantonal decree on December 1st, notably by extending the wearing of face masks.
For education, the measures remain the same. They are described in detail in the Protection and Organisation Plan for teaching at Bachelor's, Master's and Doctorate levels during the autumn semester 2021-2022. In particular, we remind you that:
- the wearing of a face mask is mandatory in the campus buildings;
- only teachers may remove their masks during their teaching, provided that their position and movements allow them to remain more than 1.5 m from the students.
Extension of the measures allowing distance learning for students who do not have a COVID certificate
The UNIL Rectorate has decided to extend until the end of the fall semester the measures intended to allow students who do not have a COVID certificate to follow the courses online.
It is therefore expected that a broadcast and/or recording of the courses will be maintained throughout the semester in order to allow for synchronous and/or asynchronous distance learning.
As a reminder, recording and broadcasting can continue to be done either via one of the 47 rooms equipped with the REC-UNIL system, or in the other classrooms via the ZOOM application available to UNIL teachers. You will find all the information, guides and resources you need for your preparation on the page " Recording of courses".
Please note that live broadcasts using the REC-UNIL system require a recording, but that the recording is not published, it is simply sent to the teacher's channel who can then either store it as a potential fallback or simply delete it.
