The UNED’s blended/dual distance methodology means that students have the chance to meet with tutors and fellow-students at local study centres (Centros Asociados) on a regular basis. You are strongly encouraged to attend these sessions, since they provide a human context to your studies and allow you to discuss issues and problems directly with your tutor and/or classmates. All study centres have facilities such as a library and computer terminals.
Though the UNED is a distance university, remember that it is committed to being “La universidad más cercana”. This is no idle claim. Through your tutorials, the curso virtual, email and more traditional means such as the telephone, letters or even personal appointments, you will receive the support you need.
Please try to contact your tutor and course supervisors at the appropriate office hours. If you call us by phone and we are away from our desk, remember always to leave your name, reason for calling and, most importantly, a contact number.
