UPF will begin the 2020-2021 academic year with face-to-face teaching, insofar as this is compatible with the health situation, and with all the necessary instruments to reduce the number of students in the classrooms and guarantee the measures recommended by health authorities. Reducing the size of class groups, establishing shifts, splitting groups, virtualizing master classes, and adapting and conditioning spaces are some of the measures that will be taken.

Special attention will be paid to ensuring a face-to-face experience for first-year students entering the campuses for the first time. All students will have a learning plan that will also provide the necessary support for cases of illness and the impossibility of following the face-to-face activity.

UPF has been working for years to adapt its educational model to the new social and labour requirements. As a face-to-face university, UPF wants to get the most out of the classroom experience, but proposes to do large group classes online, while suggesting to keep training activities in small groups on campus, where attendance is crucial for the students to make the most of their learning process.

However, the Management and the technical teams of the University, with the experience learned from the emergency of this last term, foresee several scenarios to be able to quickly react to the possible restrictions in face-to-face presence that the sanitary situation might require.
