COVID-19 Testing 

Since the start of the new year, IE has been focusing on ensuring the safety of all of its university students, professors, and staff. In order to attend in-person classes, individuals must take an antigen test at IE University facilities in either Segovia or Madrid in order to have access to campus. The diagnostic tests are being carried out for free from January 4th to January 30th in the infirmary. Students that have not arrived at campus or Spain, should consider setting the date well in advance through this link: https://secure.ie.edu/preversalud/TestAntigenLt/

Another way to book your appointment is directly through the COVID-19 Tracer Web App. If any you’d like to ask a question or report an issue don’t hesitate to email enfermeriaie@preversalud.es

Keep in mind the following, if the result of your test is NEGATIVE, your health passport will automatically turn green and you can access the campus as normal. 

If the test result is POSITIVE, you must remain in mandatory isolation for 10 days from the date of the test.

  • At the end of the isolation period, you will have to take another antigen detection test to confirm that you have passed the disease and can access the campus.
  • If the result is NEGATIVE and as long as there are no symptoms, the entrance to the campus will be authorized.
  • If it is POSITIVE, you will stay 5 more days until you take another antigen detection test.

Individuals who have already had COVID-19 and have since received a negative test result do not have to undergo this diagnostic test in January and can access campus by continuing to monitor their daily symptoms on the COVID-19 Tracer Web App. Regardless, everyone needs to perform the daily follow up assessment through the application. 

Schedules 

On another note, this second semester almost all languages, if not all of them that are taken once or twice a week will be imparted online. Sessions range from 18:00hr to 21:00hr depending on the language, level, and hours available for each section. However, this does not change the fact that professors are as committed to hard work and understanding amidst the current situation during the pandemic. Similarly, all advanced seminars will be taught one day a week with a similar timeslot. 

Please contact the language center through this email languages.university@ie.edu or the seminar department through this email seminars.university@ie.edu, in case of any questions or doubts.

  • Data Protection: Prospects and Challenges by IE Global Alumni

Time: 18:00hr to 19:00hr

Event Description: The rapid development of technology and its ability to collect data have become a concern for policymakers regarding the protection of EU citizens´ privacy.

Less than 20 years later, the Data Protection Directive of 1995 became obsolete due to the advancement of technology. That led the way for the EU to adopt a new framework to protect the privacy of individuals, the General Data Protection Regulation (‘GDPR’).

Throughout this session, we will focus on the way companies collect data, the new rules introduced by the GDPR, and their impact on companies around the world.  

We will also have some time for online networking afterward to meet and greet our newest Alumni from Greece and Cyprus.
