Our classrooms are closed, but teaching goes on

From 13th March 2020 all in-person teaching and training has been suspended at the University. There will be no lectures or classes on campus at the University until further notice.

All teaching will now take place online via Blackboard. If you are a student, all the information you need regarding the new special timetables and how to organize your studies is available to you on the intranet.

All external practical training and placements are also suspended. If you are already undertaking a placement abroad, you may continue with it, if you wish, for as long as this is permitted in that country. Although the University recommends that you do not take any risks, personal safety and public health must be the priority. Special schedules and mechanisms will be put in places at the appropriate time to enable students to undertake their placements.

Facilities are closed, but services continue

Although all in-person teaching has been suspended, many of the University’s services continue to operate and will continue to be available to students online and via telephone. In-person use of the University’s services is to be avoided: please contact these services by email or telephone. You can find the contact details of everyone who works at the University by searching for their name here

Special support for students

We recommend that students use the reference material located on the intranet to organize a personal study schedule and that they look at the information provided regarding the academic activities for each study programme, including the new timetables and how to participate in online social activities with other university students, etc.

If you are a student and have an issue of a personal nature, whatever this may be, the University is here to help you: contact us and tell us about it. If you are currently taking part in the admissions process for 2020-21, or you would like to apply for a place, we’re also here for you: call us or send us an email.

#EstamosJuntosEnEsto: we are in this together

No one's hard work or precious time will go to waste

All our students will be able to end this academic year, having learnt what they needed to learn and having undergone an appropriate assessment. No-one’s time or effort will go to waste. We will do whatever is necessary to make this happen. Everyone will be able to finish this academic year so that they can go on to the next one or graduate – this much is certain. But we must be honest in that we cannot say for sure in which month this will happen. We will change whichever calendar needs to be changed and extend whichever deadline needs to be extended. These are extraordinary times that we are living in, in which everything seems to be changing, except one thing: the conviction that we are in this together and that, together, we will do everything possible to achieve what might seem impossible today.

"We know that in life some things happen unexpectedly and they serve as a test for people and institutions, and this situation is certainly one of them. It’s very serious. It’s nothing less than a pandemic, which has brought the country to paralysis. It’s something that none of us has ever seen before.".

Alfonso Bullón de Mendoza y Gómez de Valugera,
President of the CEU San Pablo University Foundation.

Together we can make a difference

Sociologists call it "a community"

The whole University is giving everything to change, to help, to solve problems, and to connect. The lecturers, service staff, student representatives, student assistants, the students themselves – in fact, every one of us has that feeling of belonging to what sociologists call “a community”. There may be some circumstances that are hard to resolve, but, day by day, we are doing everything we can to do so. Some confusing times are ahead of us, but this uncertainty won’t stop us. We may not know what is going to happen next week, but we can make sure that all of us will be strong enough to face it.

Sumando

This Spanish word epitomises what the University and its community are all about. Sumar means “to add” and that’s what we can all do with our contributions. They might seem like small things, but when we add them together, they turn into something truly great. By sumando, we’ll all come out stronger.

#EstamosJuntosEnEsto y esto es nuevo

Many things are new, but many others aren’t

Being at home all the time, not being able to go out when you want and go where you want, having to stay at least a metre away from other people when you do venture out – all this is new. But what’s not new is the sense of solidarity that millions of people feel for each other. What’s not new is the strength and sense of unity we gain from symbolic actions, even when this is as simple as going out onto your balcony to applaud other people.

Large parts of our day-to-day life and of the university experience now is new. But the one thing today’s students know best is about adapting to new experiences, right? Today’s generation of university students are said to be the most versatile generation ever, to be better at dealing with uncertainty and using digital technology, and they also know that yesterday’s methods may not be very useful tomorrow – or even today. Now is the time, then, for you to show what you’re made of. .

General health recommendations

It is important to get information from the most reliable sources. For our students, these are:

For any questions you may have about health, these are the best pages to visit. Bear in mind that the situation is changing rapidly and so these are best sources of information, as they are regularly updated.
