Coronavirus (COVID-19) Response Center

We hope all members of the Barcelona GSE community are healthy and safe.

Please take care of yourselves and your loved ones, and follow all government health and safety recommendations.

We are all concerned about the evolution of the coronavirus and how it is impacting academic life at the Barcelona GSE. To that end, the school’s leadership team meets at least once a week to evaluate the evolving situation and adjust Barcelona GSE policies and safety measures where needed. 

Below you can find the latest information about how we are adapting programs and services for the Barcelona GSE community.

University campuses have suspended face-to-face instruction through October 31.

Beginning October 15, all Barcelona GSE Master’s programs will be conducted online. Classes will remain online for at least two weeks (through October 31).

Professors and staff will still be able to access campus offices, in accordance with policies set by UAB and UPF.

Both UAB and UPF university campuses have adopted coronavirus health and safety measures which all members of the Barcelona GSE community must respect when using these spaces. 

Please follow all the guidelines posted in campus buildings and grounds (face mask requirements, classroom capacity limitations, etc) and make frequent use of hand sanitizing stations.

The Barcelona GSE team is here for you.

Barcelona GSE offices will be minimally staffed until these restrictions are lifted, but our team is available to assist you remotely during regular office hours.
