Friday, 23 October 2020 from 9 a.m. to 6.30 p.m. in Palazzo Badini (via Verdi 10) and streamed live on Unito media (www.unito.it/media), takes place the
workshop “Promoting happiness and well-being: contexts and instruments”, organized by the Department of Psychology and by Movimento Mezzopieno
and aimed at students and citizens in general.

The workshop will deal with the theme of well-being and happiness starting from a scientific understanding of the constructs and presenting the results
achieved by science, in particular psychology, on this topic. The workshop is for 60 students from undergraduate and postgraduate UniTo faculties (Departments of Psychology; Culture, Politics and Society; Economy and Statistics; Neuroscience; Humanities; Medical Science; Public health science
and Paediatric Science).
The participants must register online (registration is compulsory), choosing whether to attend “in presence” or “remotely”; the morning's plenary sessions are streamed live on Unito media (www.unito.it/media) and are accessible by the citizens as well.

Research Centre for Women and Gender Studies (CIRSDe) recently published a new guide about Università di Torino programmes with a gender-based
perspective. It is an interesting a helpful tool for any UniTo student to approach and explore gender studies. In fact, it offers an overview on the active courses in the various Departments of Turin that have focused on a gender-based perspective.

There are few Gender Studies courses in Italian universities and we advise you visit CIRSDe website to find out more about Doctorates, master’s degrees or
advanced courses on this subject. In the past few years in Italy, the need to address not only issues related to the disparity between men and women but
also the LGBTQ+ community has arisen. We hope that in next year’s guide we will be able to put more Gender Studies courses, so that the academic world in Turin will be even more inclusive.

 

The Unito Management Board has definitively approved the fees regulations for the academic year 2020/2021. Here you will find some of the important changes they entail, a few of which we had previously disclosed.

– The NO TAX AREA will be expanded to all ISEE indexes lower than € 20,000, in accordance with the latest
ministerial provisions.
– A decrease in the fees assigned to ISEE indexes between € 20,000-26,000.
Part-time students will be able to enjoy a 20% reduction on their ISEE compared to the previous
regulations, no matter the value of their index. This way, part-time fees will amount only to 60% of full-time
fees, compared to 75% in previous years, becoming more proportionate to the maximum credit workload for
this kind of study plan (36).
– Students with an ISEE index lower than € 20,000 and an “inactive” study plan will see merit-based
distinctions reduced.
– It will be possible to produce the ISEE documentation for higher education reductions (ISEEU) after the
official November 20 th , 2020 deadline upon payment of arrears of 150 euros. Under those terms, the ISEEU
documentation will be accepted until March 22 nd , 2021. Current ISEE documentation will also be accepted until
the same date.
– Student fees will be divided into four installments instead of three.
Italian and foreign students who are not eligible to apply for higher education reductions will have the
choice to apply for a reduction to their overall university fees for the academic year 2020/2021 based either on
their officially recognized ISEE index or on the GDP per capita of their/their parents; country of residence,
adjusted according to Purchasing Power Parity (PPP) rates.
A Taxation Help Centre (CAF) will be opened within the premises of the university in order to make the process of acquiring ISEEU documentation easier.

Workshop estivo di architettura all’Accademia Internazionale di Venezia

Architecture students can now sign up for the Sommerakademie Venedig 2018.

The Accademia Internazionale di Architettura di Venezia offers to architecture students from the Technische Universität Dortmund, the Politecnico di Torino, the Technical University Eindhoven and from Potsdam School of Architecture, the incredible opportunity of knowing the city of Venice and intensively studying its architecture for two weeks.
The study holiday isn’t just a course, but it also gives the chance to improve one’s knowledge by studying urban and architectural elements of a very special European city. Furthermore, meeting guests and debating with students from other schools allows for an enriching experience on both technical and cultural points of view.
The subject of the Accademia this year is “6 Piazze a Venezia”(6 Squares in Venice).  Each group (made up of German, Dutch and Italian students) will study a Square through detailed drawing. The six squares will be:

  • Campo dei Carmini
  • Campo San Paolo
  • Campo San Giacomo dell’Orio
  • Campo Santo Stefano
  • Campo dei Frari
  • Campo San Barnaba

Each square will be thoroughly measured, with perspective sketches of the façades of its buildings, as well as of spatial relations. Through careful observation, students should understand the relation between the square and the elements which define it (buildings with façades). Learning to consider materials, colours and proportions as a base for building a façade is the focus of the Accademia di Venezia this year. After the analysis, a new façade will be designed for one of the buildings surrounding the square. Students will receive support  from the TU Dortmund Architecture, with lectures on different drawing techniques; and from foreign professors, lecturing on specific subjects.

Where: Università Iuav, Venezia 

When: September 1, to September 15, 2018

Maximum number of participants for PoliTo: 10 students

Laureati: occupati sì, ma a quale prezzo?

Okay, graduates work, but at what price? AlmaLaurea, the interacademic group which carries out statistics and tries to make offer meet demand through the publication of the CVs of just graduate students and of the job place offered by companies, found out that graduates are employed, but they remain poor.

The last survey, which has involved 71 Universities and 620 thousand graduates from 2011 onwards, produced the following data: three years after graduation, the employment rate is 82% for those with a five-year degree and 83% for those with a two-year one. However, data regarding the remuneration graduates earn a year after having been employed are not so positive: 1.110 euro net monthly. Five years after graduation, wages increase but remain inferior to 1.400 euro net monthly.

But what is the situation in Piedmont like? The picture that emerges from the data published by the newspaper L’Espresso about the situation of young people a year after graduation does not look very good. The situation of the six sectors in which appear data about Universities of Piedmont is the following:

 

Legal Sciences 

For three-year and master degrees (not single-cycled ones) in legal sciences and services, the percentage of employed graduates is 26,3% of the total, with an average wage of 965 euro monthly.

Pharmaceutical Sciences and Technologies

In Turin, 86% of graduates in this discipline are employed a year after degree and earn an average wage of 1239 euro.

The University of Eastern Piedmont has the same percentage of employed graduates but with a slightly inferior wage of 1090 euro monthly.

Biology and Geology

The University in Vercelli records 50% of employed students a year after degree with an average wage of 976 euro.

 

Physics, Informatics and Mathematics

58.1% of graduates in scientific disciplines at the University of Turin is employed a year after degree, with an average remuneration of 1100 euro monthly.

Agricultural, Food, Zootechnical and Veterinary Sciences

As regard the University of Collegno, for three-year and master degree, the average employment rate a year after degree is 73,5% with an average retribution of 1128 euro. Worrying data emerges for single-cycled five-year degrees in Veterinary and Agricultural Sciences: the employment rate is 69.2% with a wage of only 774 euro monthly.
