Face-to-face and online classes

Teaching model for the 2020-21 academic year

UC3M has approved a new hybrid teaching model for the 2020/21 academic year that will combine face-to-face classes and interactive synchronous online teaching while complying with strict health and safety measures.

Face-to-face classes and synchronous online teaching

Each subject will have two weekly sessions, of 90 or 100 minutes, given in the following way:

Master session

- Theoretical content

- Synchronous online teaching

 Small group session

- Practical content

- On-site


- Face-to-face or online synchronous teaching, depending on the subject taught.





All online sessions will be held synchronously. This means that the classes will be broadcast live, allowing the teacher to interact with the students.

Class hours

Each student will have 50% of their class hours on campus. The rest will be taught online..



Training in distance learning applications

At the beginning of the academic year, the University will offer new students training sessions on the use of distance learning applications, coordinated by the UC3M Vice-Rector's Office for Strategy and Digital Education..

Specific actions

In some cases, small groups will be opened online, in addition to those taught face-to-face. At the same time, certain subjects will be taught online for all sessions.

The University is prepared to move to a 100% online synchronous model, in case a new suspension of face-to-face teaching activity is decreed.

Los estudiantes deberán disponer de un equipo informático adecuado, con conexión a internet y webcam, para el seguimiento en remoto de las clases. Debido a las restricciones en el uso de aulas informáticas derivadas de la crisis sanitaria del COVID-19, podría ser necesario disponer de un equipo portátil para su utilización en el aula.

La UC3M dispone de un programa de préstamo de portátiles para los estudiantes que lo necesiten.
