What is Passport.U

Passport.Unito is an online program that helps you acknowledge and promote your soft skills development. After a self-evaluation, you can participate in activities that include self-reflection, reading, lectures, on-line practice, videos and much more.
At the end of the program, you can repeat the self-evaluation to understand if you made any progress, take the final test on the program activities and receive an attendance certificate.

Passport.Unito attendance is not mandatory for students who are registered to restricted-access and free-access English courses (single-cycle Bachelor’s Degrees and Master’s Degrees) for 2020-21 academic year.

How does Passport.Unito work
You can access Passport.Unito platform only after registering to a degree course by accessing MyUnito
Studente or by using your credentials directly on the platform.

 

The new academic year is nearby and it is full of news for the students. Here are the regulations for in- person lessons.
As far as “Università degli Studi” is concerned:
 Access to classrooms will only be allowed to those who have COVID-19 green certificate, the so-called “Green Pass”, and lessons will have to be reserved through MyUnito app.
 It is mandatory to use facemasks, to sanitize one’s hands and to keep the distance.
 It is mandatory to show one’s QRcode before accessing classrooms and to seat in the designated seats.

As far as “Politecnico di Torino” is concerned, the following rules apply:

 Trained staff will verify the certification at the entrance by using devices which observe privacy laws (currently VerificaC19 app). Sample verifications may be carried out.
 Politecnico, together with Regione Piemonte and Università di Torino, promoted a vaccination centre and a service to allow students and university staff to undergo Covid tests at a lower price.

The TOLC test will be compulsory also for all degree courses at Università di Torino. In fact, the TOLC test has replaced the TARM test (Test di Accertamento dei Requisiti Minimi- a test to ascertain minimum requirements), which was used in previous years to enroll on open-access degree
courses at the university of Turin.

The TOLC test can be taken on the online platform provided by the CISIA Consortium.
Which TOLC should I choose?
It depends from the degree courses on which you would like to enroll

 The TOLC-E for the following courses: Business Administration, Economics and Statistics for Organisations; Social Innovation, Communication, New Technologies;
 The English TOLC-E for: Global law and transnational legal studies;
 The TOLC-SU for the following courses: Cultural Heritage; Intercultural Communication;
Labour Consultancy and Human Resources Management; Cultures and Literatures of the
Modern World; DAMS (Disciplines of Arts, Music and Performing Arts); Agri-food Law;
Law for Business and Institutions; Philosophy; Law; Humanities; Asian and African

Languages and Cultures; Languages and Cultures for Tourism; Modern Languages andLiteratures; Communication Sciences; Language Mediation Sciences; Digital Administration Sciences; International Development and Cooperation Sciences; Political and Social Sciences; Social Service (Biella campus); History.

 The TOLC-S for the following courses: Chemistry and Chemical Technology; Physics; Computer Science; Mathematics; Mathematics for Finance and Insurance; Farm and Wild Animal Production and Management; Materials Science and Technology; Agricultural Science and Technology; Forest and Environmental Science; Geological Sciences; Natural Sciences; Herbal Techniques.
When do I have to take the test?
The test has to be taken no later than 22 nd September 2021. Registration for the test on the Cisia website will close on 16 September 2021. However, you can only sign up for the test until all available places are filled; places are limited and change according to calendar
availability.

How much does it cost?
The test costs 30€.
If you do not take the TOLC in time, you compromise your chances of enrolling for the
2021/2022 academic year.

 

Starting from the next academic year, it will be possible to apply for the CUS Card during the registration process.
What is the CUS Card for?

On Tuesday 29th June a new campus of the University of Turin opened in the former offices of the daily newspaper La Stampa in Via Chiabrera 32. The new Campus will have new classrooms, laboratories and ASTUT – Archivio Scientifico e Tecnologico dell’Università di Torino (Science and
Technology Archive of the University of Turin).

It will contain classrooms with a maximum capacity of 3.185 students, as well as the exhibition area and laboratories of the Science and Technology Archive of the University of Turin. On the 3.255 square metres-large ground floor there will be five classrooms for a seating capacity of 1.250 and a snack bar. On the first floor, which is 3.175 square metres-large, there will be four classrooms for a capacity of 1.120. On the 2.787 square metres-large second floor, there will be five classrooms for a capacity of 815 and a big study area.

Then, on the two basements, you will find the museum with laboratories and a wide exhibition area.

Globalization, sustainable development goals and digital transition open up new scenarios and pose new, huge challenges to the scientific and technical professions.
The need for a more interdisciplinary scientific and technical training emerges. Technologies must be integrated into a complex system with various layers
interconnected: physical, cyber, environmental, economic and social layers. For a lifelong training, the need to involve professionals already active in the labour market in this process of continuing training also arises.

Stimulated by these needs, an interuniversity working group composed of major universities – Politecnico di Bari, Milano e Torino, Università di Bologna,
Napoli Federico II, Padova, Palermo and Roma La Sapienza- developed an experimental high training project named “Technologies for transitions”. The pilot
initiative of this project consists in training qualified engineers so they can face the multidimensional problems posed by the ecological transition (Green Technologies) and digital transition of infrastructures (Smart Infrastructures). These are topics of major strategic importance within the context of Next Generation EU and within the perspective of enhancing the measures of the Recovery and Resilience Plan for
transversal skills.

Two implementation procedures have been initially arranged: a) the establishment of Minors in higher education within Master’s degree programs in order to train engineers with interdisciplinary tools and methods, as well as professionalizing digital skills, able to work with a systemic perspective in multi-sector contexts; b) the establishment of “double Master’s degree” programs, aimed at training highly- specialized professionals in multi-sector contexts, through training programs integrated in Master’s degree courses.

The universities that join the project “Technologies for transitions”, already from academic year 2021/2022, are implementing the first educational initiatives based on general, shared criteria. They also support student mobility and shared training activities.
