Programmes

Note: In light of the covid pandemic and the unpredictability of its evolution, the programmes for the 2020/21 academic year have undergone format adaptations to on-line or on-premise learning (or a mixture of both in exceptional cases), Ar.Co’s priority being whenever possible on-premise. The schedules here announced therefore mention the format in which, except in case of absolute impossibility, the subject in question will be taught. Ar.Co will rigorously follow and implement all DGS guidelines, including the use of masks, distancing and hygiene.
