Welcome to Ayrshire College
COVID-19 Campus Update
Update (18 March)
The First Minister provided an update to the Scottish Parliament on 16 March on the next steps out of lockdown.
Currently and until 5 April 2021, a very limited amount of face-to-face teaching is taking place on campus where learning is time-sensitive and critical to the successful conclusion of a student’s studies and where it is absolutely not possible to deliver remotely or postpone the return. No more than 5% of students are permitted to be on campus at any one time for in-person learning, teaching and assessment. In addition, students will be able to attend work placement in critical sectors, such as health and social care, and early learning and childcare.
The College’s Spring Break takes place from 2-16 April 2021. From Monday 19 April 2021, more students will be permitted to return to college to complete learning, teaching and assessment. Again, guidance states that students’ return should only be for those students where on-campus learning and assessment is critical. Students who must undertake practical learning and assessments will be prioritised for a return.
Course teams will be in touch to provide an update for your course. The vast majority of students will continue with online learning throughout the rest of March and April and services to support learning will also predominantly continue online.
We understand that this is a difficult time and that you may be juggling your personal circumstances with your studies. We aim to be as flexible as possible so please contact your course team or a member of Student Services to discuss your situation.
These arrangements will be kept under review in line with the latest Scottish Government guidance and we will update information here and via our social media pages.
