The Movimento per la Dignità della Docenza Universitaria have announced a strike during the next summer exam session of 2017/2018 academic year, from June 1, 2018 to July 31, 2018.
Professors who will take part in the strike will not administer the first programmed exams. The following exams of the summer session will take place regularly.
It will be possible to schedule extraordinary exams:
- from the fourteenth day after the day of the strike, if there’s only one exam from June 1 to July 31, or if there are 5 or less chances per year of re-taking the exam set ofr the day of the strike
- approximately 7 days after the day of the strike, for graduating students, Erasmus students, students with specific health issues or pregnant students.
We guarantee therefore at least one chance of taking every exam during the summer session.
Based on the principles of the right to strike, professors are not obliged to communicate their intention of striking beforehand.
