The UAB passes general action framework for the end of the course

Campus de la UAB

The UAB recently passed the criteria under which the academic year will end, given the current health crisis. The directions are related to the academic calendar, teaching, student evaluation, final projects, work placements and practicums and teaching guides.


In an extraordinary session held online, the UAB Governing Council passed two directions for the end of the 2019/20 academic year, adapted to the current circumstances produced by the COVID-19 health crisis. The two documents cover undergraduate and graduate studies at the UAB. These two framework documents with general instructions will need to be adapted to each faculty's characteristics and include indications on the academic calendar, teaching, student evaluation, teaching guides, final projects and dissertations, and work placements.

Given the large possibility that the lockdown will be extended and that the deconfinement process will be done progressively, the Governing Team and the director teams of each of the teaching centres, agreed to end on-site teaching for the remainder of the second semester and continue with all academic activities online. They also agreed to adopt measures regarding the end of the academic year and offer guarantees to students, lecturers, and administration and services staff who directly or indirectly give support to these academic activities. These are the measure passed by the Governing Council and are detailed in the documents below.

Direction 7/2020, regarding the finalisation of the 2019/20 academic year for graduate programmes
