Due to the rapidly changing situation regarding coronavirus and to best protect the health and safety of all of our students, the College has taken the decision to suspend all face-to-face classes from today, Tuesday 17th March 2020.
Additional provision will be in place to enable students to continue studying from home. All students will be issued with guidance on how to continue their studies during this time and individual class information will be made available on Moodle.
We understand that students will be concerned about the impact that this may have on studies and progression. We'd like to emphasise that this situation is national and reassure students that we are speaking with external agencies to limit the longer term impact on everybody.
Students will be issued with guidance via online channels on how to continue their studies and individual class information will be made available on Moodle.
It is important that students continue to keep up to date with information regarding the College and their studies via our online channels – email, Moodle, social media and website.
The College is committed to limiting the negative impact this has on students' studies and we are confident we have a plan in place to ensure students can progress to the next stage of their studies.
As the situation develops, we will notify students of any updates via our online channels including this webpage and via email. Please continue to check our channels for the latest information.
It is important that you continue to follow the advice provided by the Government and public health agencies during this time to keep yourself and others protected.
• Anyone who has symptoms of coronavirus, however mild, should stay at home and not leave their house for 7 days from when the symptoms started – regardless of whether you have travelled to affected areas or been in contact with someone who has the virus.
• If any member of your household is displaying symptoms, this period is extended to 14 days for all members of the household.
• NHS Scotland recommends using good hand, respiratory and personal hygiene. Coughing and sneezing should be into tissues that are promptly disposed down the toilet. Hands should be washed more regularly than usual with soap and water or using an alcohol hand rub even if hands are visibly clean.
We are aware that this is an anxious time for our students, particularly those already impacted by mental health difficulties.
