8,700 students from Degree started classes today at the University of Navarra at campus in Pamplona and San Sebastian. Most of them have done it in person and personalized, and with all the necessary security measures.

"We are excited to start the academic year with new students. We have designed 40 measures thinking about the status that covid has generated for us, basically with three lines of work: teaching, health and scholarships," said the Alumni Vice President , Tomás Gómez-Acebo.

"All this would not be possible if each and every member of the university community did not collaborate in following the prevention measures inside and outside the campus. Therefore, we think that if we are all so compliant and there is no selfish behavior this will be a memorable year," he said.

Students have begun classes with reduced seating capacity, in classrooms renovated with new technologies and resources, and with 1,566 new workspaces. Thus, 450 webcams have been installed in classrooms, offices and seminars and infrastructure for streaming in 300 spaces, so that students who are in other areas, are sick or in quarantine, as well as international students who have not yet joined in person can follow the classes. "We are committed to face-to-face teaching, but knowing that there will be students who will have to be away," said Tomás Gómez-Acebo.

So far 1,285,000 euros have been invested in this teaching project and it is estimated that with the start of the school year the total cost of improvement will be close to 2 million euros.

Although the enrollment process is still open, so far 2,193 new students have enrolled. The forecast is to exceed 2,200 first-year students, maintaining the positive trend of recent years. Of these students (2,193), 635 (29%) are from Navarra, 946 (43%) from outside Navarra and 612 (28%) from outside Spain, coming from 60 countries. Among them are the United States, Mexico, Ecuador, Panama and Colombia.
