19/03/2020, 16.57 P.M.: systems maintenance

The implementation of telework on an unprecedented scale requires the Information System Department to regularly adjust the university's digital infrastructure in order to improve the quality of service and maintain all our digital resources in operational condition.

These adjustments require human intervention and must currently be carried out at least once a day.

Therefore we kindly ask you not to use the university's digital resources between 12:30 and 13:30 and to log out during this time after saving your work.

We apologize for the inconvenience caused in your remote practices and thank you for your understanding.

16/03/2020, 6.30 P.M.: Pedagogical continuity measures implemented at the university

The University Toulouse Capitole has adopted with all its components several measures to ensure pedagogical continuity starting this week.

  • Examination dates
All examinations for all training courses are postponed.
They will begin no earlier than the week of May 4, 2020.

In all courses where this is necessary to enable the examinations to be organised, the oral tests will be replaced by one-hour written tests.

The postponement date may be adjusted if the situation so requires. The university will make every effort to inform you 15 days in advance of any new date, as well as the detailed timetable for your tests and the precise arrangements for the tests (oral or written in particular).
  • Examination topics
In any case, the examination subjects in initial training will only cover the teaching given on Friday 13 March.

Specific provisions for work-study students are detailed below.

This measure aims to ensure equity between students who do not all have an internet connection, sufficient speed or simply suitable computer equipment to follow the online courses implemented by your teachers.
It is also justified by the fact that most of the initial training courses were very advanced at the time of the interruption of the courses.
  • Online courses
The managers and teachers of your training courses will soon inform you of the conditions under which you will be able to find online course elements complementary to those you have followed in person.

Distance evaluation sessions may be organised as part of these courses.
Any marks obtained will not be taken into account in your average, but will allow you to measure your mastery of your knowledge.

Applying for next year's course
The Ministry of Higher Education has indicated that the Parcoursup schedule is maintained. First year students in reorientation are therefore invited to follow the instructions on
Students applying for training at UT Capitol for 2020-2021 are invited to follow the instructions issued on the institution's eApplications portal. Indeed, given the situation, the timetable and the documents to be provided are likely to be modified, but the planned or ongoing admission campaigns are maintained.
  • Internships
There are several possible scenarios:
  1. You have completed your internship: Your defense will be postponed to a later date as soon as possible.
  2. You have interrupted your internship or you have not been able to start it, so a status report will be made at the end of May:
    •  Either it will be possible to resume or start your internship for a period of at least 2 months,
    •  Or, failing this, you will be offered to write an applied thesis to be submitted at the beginning of the school year to replace your internship report.

  • Students in work-study programs
The instructions concerning the maintenance of the period in the workplace are decided by each company. We invite you to follow the instructions of the company that concerns you.

As for the exams, they will be postponed, as for students in initial training, to the week of May 4 at the earliest, and you will also be informed of the detailed terms and conditions and the detailed timetable of the tests.
Due to the rhythm of the work-study programme, the teaching given was less advanced than in initial training when the courses were interrupted on 13 March.
For this reason, all the courses that will be given to you online during the period when the school is closed will be subject to evaluation when we return to normal operation.

Each component will be declining and detailing all of these cross-cutting measures in the coming days.
