Our response to COVID-19

Due to COVID-19's significant impact on our lives, we've taken a number of measures with two key goals in mind: to protect the health of our staff and to help students continue their learning.

We've also sought to put our expertise to good use in the community, helping to launch the Conectad@s: La universidad en casa platform.  And, in April, the "Emergency remote teaching" programme, targeting Spanish-speaking teachers trying to adapt to online teaching. The initiative was welcomed with open arms: about 10,000 people from 47 countries signed up for the programme.

Our work responding to this situation is ongoing. On these pages you can find updated information on all our measures and initiatives.

Stay at home and learn

To adapt to students' personal situations and to help them continue their studies, we've introduced a series of measure offering extra flexibility. We're also offering resources to the wider public so they can learn from home.


e-working and wellbeing

We've taken steps to ensure our staff can stay healthy. Our infographics are available to anyone interested in ways to improve the experience of e-working.
