Our number one priority is the health of everyone who lives, works or studies on EPFL’s campuses in Ecublens, Geneva, Neuchâtel, Fribourg and Sion.
And each and every one of us has a part to play in this. The measures that EPFL has taken reflect our shared responsibility to protect those who are at especially high risk – people whose lives intersect with ours both on campus and around town. We must do all we can to slow the spread of this disease.
[24 July 2020 update]
In order to keep everyone safe and ensure that the written and oral exams run smoothly, EPFL has prepared specific health and safety guidelines for the three-week exam session. These guidelines are in addition to the measures you should already be taking on a daily basis.
Please read these guidelines carefully and be sure to follow them. Everyone’s cooperation is essential.
