COVID-19 Campus Update

Update (24 February)

The First Minister provided an update to the Scottish Parliament on 23 February where she referred to the Coronavirus (COVID-19): Strategic Framework update - February 2021.

This document provides indicative details about the return of students to colleges. It allows for a very limited amount of face-to-face teaching to take 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 will be on campus at any one time for in-person learning and teaching. In addition, students will be able to attend work placement in critical sectors, such as health and social care, and early learning and childcare.

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.
