Health Protocol

At IE your health comes first!

IE University offers the unique opportunity, thanks to our rigorous health protocols, to be able to resume in-person classes since June 2020. We’ve gone the extra mile so that you can enjoy your life-enriching university experience, the way it was meant to be, without putting your health at risk.

With our new and innovative Liquid Learning Methodology, we are committed to making the IE Experience accessible to everyone. Whether online, offline, synchronous, asynchronous, in Madrid or anywhere else in the world, our Hybrid class model gives students freedom to flow between environments and situations.

Here are some of the measures we’ve introduced to create a safe environment:

  • Antigen tests for anyone accessing campus for the first time.
  • IE COVID-19 Tracer Web App to monitor and identify cases in the IE Community.
  • Alternative accommodation, if necessary, for those infected, to guarantee their isolation.
  • Adapted infrastructure and academic activity to guarantee strict access control and a low population density.
  • Strict monitoring of hygiene and physical distancing rules on campus, including the mandatory use of a mask

Our campus is the safest place to be! #weareready #iecares
