Your learning - what to expect


2021/2 Academic Year

We are planning optimistically for the new academic year and it is our intention that our buildings will be open to all students, allowing you to study on campus and access support services.

We still expect to be operating under some Scottish Government restrictions, however, we are planning to bring as many students as possible onto campus for face-to-face teaching, unless your course is designed for remote/online delivery only.

It is likely most of our courses will be delivered via a blended model – that’s a combination of face-to-face teaching and some remote delivery.

Your timetable will show you when you should be on campus for classes and when you should access your classes remotely via a laptop or other device. You’ll also find out more about this at your induction.

All students will also be able to come onto campus to access facilities including the Library, Learning Resource, The Bothy and Student Support Centre.
