Traveling to AUR for Fall 2020, here's what you need to know - updated 22 July 2020

We have now received clarity around the procedures relating to travel to Italy for AUR new and returning students.
The information below is correct as of 22 July, 2020 but we will update this if and when the situation changes.
The most important thing to note is that AUR new and returning students  will be free to travel to Italy and  will be able to undertake the semester on campus  with face-to-face instruction.

Below we have detailed the procedures, as we know them today, for students of various citizenships and points of departure. Please select the section which pertains to you for further details.

In the event of the mandatory quarantine still being in place in September, how AUR plans to make this a constructive and beneficial period.

Unfortunately, in the current situation, quarantine is simply a fact of life. As you will appreciate, this is for the good of the entire population as well as the good of the AUR community. However, quarantine does not have to be a burden - it can be constructive, fun, community building, and useful!

For those students who will have to quarantine on arrival in Italy, AUR is constructing a full schedule of activites and tasks that will make the time fly past - you may even miss it when it's done!

We will be

- Conducting online Italian lessons to get you ready for when you enter the hubub of Rome

- Providing course specific reading lists and online reading discussion groups

- Having daily exercise classes and, for those flexible enough, evening yoga classes

- Delivering ingredient boxes and holding online Italian cooking lessons

- Having Netflix film discussion evenings

- Running online quiz nights

We're even going to try and have an online choir and online gaming events. Plus, of course, you'll have your classes to attend (virtually) - and we may throw in a virtual aperitivo...

Throughout it all, we'll be on call to help with your daily needs and to help you make the most of your timeout. We'll be providing a full schedule of (all voluntary) activities in the coming weeks.
