Dear alumni,

I hope you have had a good summer and that you are fully energized for the new academic year despite the continuing challenging context.

Unlike some other higher education establishments, here at IFP School we wanted those students able to do so - i.e., the vast majority - to attend classes on-site in order to recreate the “School spirit” that is so dear to us all. In doing so, however, it is vital that we observe the strictest preventive measures since our main priority remains the health of our students, our teaching personnel (in-house and visiting) and the rest of our staff.

Students who have not yet been able to join us are studying remotely, either synchronously or asynchronously, thanks to the marvels of technology and the committed efforts of the School’s staff.

The new academic year here at IFP School has thus been “phygital” and some of the secrets will be revealed here!

One area of immense satisfaction for us is also the size of the new student intake which, despite the context, is almost unchanged compared to previous years, thanks to the constant support of our industrial partners. What’s more, this new intake covers 50 different nationalities, a record!

This period has also provided an opportunity to encourage new initiatives, such as IFP School Voices, webinars that will be held every month and that you are all invited to take part in.

I hope you enjoy reading this issue. Stay safe.
