This Resolution is applicable to the management of issues that arise during final exams that are part of ordinary assessment sessions (convocatorias ordinarias) and resits (convocatorias extraordinarias) in the second semester, as well as resits at faculties and schools employing the "open" calendar (calendario de semestres abiertos) for the first semester of the 2020-2021 academic year. The aim of this Resolution is to address circumstances that are not covered by the UGR Assessment Policy and Regulations (UGR Official Gazette [BOUGR] no. 112 of 9 November 2016), which establishes the procedures, conditions and requirements to be followed in order to grant, where appropriate, a deferred examination session due to extenuating circumstances, in a normal academic context.
The measures established by the health authorities last October once again led our University to adapt to a predominantly remote teaching model. The great effort made by all the members of the university community, in addition to the significant investment made in the previous months with regard to the provision of equipment and training, have made it possible to guarantee the continuity of teaching and assessment activities in a more than satisfactory manner.
In the Resolution of the Rector of 8 February 2021 on teaching activities at the beginning of the second semester of the 2020-21 academic year for degrees at the University of Granada, it was established — in order to provide greater certainty and facilitate the organisation of teaching activities — that the measures adopted would be maintained until Friday 26 March 2021, with said measures being reviewed before this date in light of the current epidemiological situation, with a view to the development of teaching activities until the end of the second semester.
On 4 June 2020, a Resolution of the Rector was issued for the purposes of authorising the resumption of work placements in an on-site (face-to-face) mode. Said Resolution establishes that: "New work placements, whether on-site or remote, will only be authorised as long as the companies are not involved in labour force adjustment processes (either a furlough plan known as an ERTE or layoff plan known as an ERE in Spain), except if these only affect a specific part of the company that is unrelated to the placement. Companies will be required to make a declaration of responsibility stating that they are not involved in an ERTE or ERE and, where appropriate, must guarantee the effective supervision of the student in accordance with the training project”, with a view to facilitating the completion of the curricular work placement.
