Transition to online teaching

To protect the safety and interests of students and staff, the College has suspended all face-to-face teaching and has transitioned to online learning from Monday, 23 March through to Monday, 20 April. However, in light of the rapidly evolving situation, this is subject to change.

In light of the more stringent coronavirus measures announced by the Government on 23 March, all College sites are closed to students and will remain closed until further notice. Students are not required to attend classes on campus.

With teaching moving online, students' engagement in classes will be monitored through their engagement in online course materials and assessments.
