UdA temporarily suspends on-campus activities

 

In order to avoid the spread of Covid-19 and to protect the most vulnerable populations, and in accordance with the measures agreed upon by the Andorran Government, we inform the university community that from Monday, 16 March, the University of Andorra’s campus will be temporarily closed until further notice. Consequently, on-site activities will not be carried while the campus is closed.

With the fundamental objective of following the academic calendar as closely as possible, teaching and class assessments will be flexible, and exceptional measures will be taken so that all official study programmes can be followed in an online format. Online lifelong learning courses are maintained in virtual mode, whereas on-campus lifelong learning courses will be temporarily postponed.

Measures for official studies

Online studies are not affected (except for the suspension of clinical and business internships that cannot be carried out via telework). Therefore, the following official degrees continue as usual in their online format:

On-campus official studies:
  • Advanced Professional Diploma in Administration and Finance: A virtual classroom with videoconferencing abilities is enabled for first-year students and internships for second-year students are cancelled. Contact: Lorena Jordana [ljordana@uda.ad]
  • Bachelor of Business Administration: All students will follow the existing online format, substituting in-person advising sessions with virtual sessions.

Measures for lifelong learning courses

  • Online lifelong learning programmes are unchanged (see annex).
  • On-site courses are temporarily suspended, except for the Llengua i cultura xineses courses and the postgrau en Fiscalitat, which are maintained in online format with videoconference (see annex).

  • A virtual classroom with videoconferencing is enabled. Contact: Cristina Fernández [cfernandezf@uda.ad]

Measures for University of Andorra personnel

All faculty of the university will be available by videoconference during class hours, and both faculty and administrative staff will carry out their tasks via telework during their working hours. Services to the public via telephone will be offered Monday to Friday from 9am to 1pm.

On the other hand, at the request of the Ministry of Health, some faculty and students from the School of Nursing will support the health system of Andorra in order to face the current health crisis, and these faculty will therefore not have the same availability.
