There are only 3 weeks left until the start of the Summer School of Economics & Business, and 5 weeks left until the start of the new Summer School A Multidisciplinary Approach to Climate Change, and I just want to let you know that all of our courses are well over the minimum number of students and will be taught with 100% face-to-face classes on Campus. We still have some seats available, so if you have students still looking for a totally on-Campus study abroad experience for this summer, we are here for them!
I kindly remind you of where your students can find the detailed information:
- Summer School of Economics and Business (28 June-23 July 2021): https://uamsseb.education/
Four 6-ECTS credit courses, taught in English, in an intensive 4-week format (choose 1 or 2):
a) Environmental Economics and Policy Analysis
b) International Finance
c) Global Marketing
d) Doing Business in Spain
- A Multidisciplinary Approach to Climate Change (12-23 July 2021): https://climate.enveco.es/
An intensive 2-week study program that offers a multidisciplinary course, taught in English, with two versions:
a) 3 ECTS credits: only the classes at UAM
b) 6 ECTS credits: additionally to the classes, a directed study under the direction of one of the professors of the program. Also possible to take the first half of Environmental Economics and Policy Analysis or Doing Business in Spain (starting in this case on 28 June)
Regarding COVID-19 and travel restrictions for non-EU students, please notice that:
- Travel restrictions don’t apply to students! We noticed the common misunderstanding, deterring many non-EU students to apply, of believing that the travel restrictions for unnecessary travels (basically tourism) applies also to them. However, travels that are not considered unnecessary include studying. Hence students in a program in Spain can travel to Spain, regardless of their country of origin and regardless of being or not vaccinated.
· Spain’s vaccination plan against COVID-19 is going very well. As of Friday, more than 25% of the target population (the population over 16 years of age) was fully vaccinated, and almost 50% had received at least one dose. By the start of the programs these percentages could be 40% and 65%, and COVID-related deaths could be down to zero.
