Given the uncertainty that the current health situation is generating in students from various points of origin -including Madrid- we have decided to allow Nebrija students to also take their class-attendance degrees remotely during the upcoming academic year. This option will be as similar as possible to in-person education thanks to our hybrid attendance model, a commitment on which we have been working for years, and that combines state-of-the-art technology with an equally cutting-edge methodology. Hybrid attendance allows students, whether at home or in the classroom, to have the same university experience and receive the same excellent education.
As you know, we are a class attendance University, and we have made an enormous effort to offer you the best possible university experience on our various campuses the upcoming academic year. Hygiene and safety measures have been maximized, the faculty has updated its digital skills, and the classrooms have been equipped with cutting-edge technology in order to enable the generalization of our hybrid attendance model. If you still don’t know about this model, you can learn about it in this video.
However, as we are aware of the uncertainty that the health situation can generate in many groups, we have resolved to allow Nebrija students to take their in-person degrees from home (or from any other place) during the upcoming academic year. This option will be as similar as possible to on-site education thanks to the aforementioned hybrid attendance, a commitment we have been working on for years, and that combines state-of-the-art technology with an equally cutting-edge methodology.
Thus, students who formally request it from the University and who receive the corresponding authorization will be able to attend classes virtually through the Blackboard Collaborate Ultra platform. This does not mean in any way that students are exempt from attending classes, but that they can do so remotely without physically going to the campus if this is advisable due to their specific conditions.
This choice will affect the first semester as a whole, and may be extended if desired to the entire 20/21 academic year. In other words, once a student has chosen the option of taking classes remotely, he/she will do so throughout the first semester, and can extend it to the second if desired. Exams may also be held remotely, at the same time as the in-person exams on campus, and with the security measures established by the University in order to guarantee reliable results.
The practical subjects that, due to the need for physical presence, cannot be taken remotely, will be offered at the end of the academic year as intensive in-person workshops for those students who chose to study remotely.
This measure responds to the exceptional circumstances we are experiencing, and is intended to be an aid to students who, for various reasons, may have an impediment in attending class physically. It is, therefore, one more initiative of flexibility and personalization, consistent with our vocation to adapt education to each student.
Our desire is to continue providing a class-attendance university experience, and we have everything ready for our students to return to our classrooms next year with all health and academic guarantees.
We hope to see you at our various campuses, either in person or through technology. Have a happy summer.
