Lews Castle College UHI has announced they will start the next academic term as planned.
Term dates for Further Education students will begin on August 31, 2020, while Higher Education students will begin their studies on September 7, 2020 (except for specific programmes including teacher education that normally have different start dates).
"We will ensure that this return is in line with current Scottish Government public health measures and guidance, including physical distancing, to ensure this is a safe environment for all staff and students.
We have been developing and delivering our courses to students across our partnership and across the world over many years, connecting our students and our communities. We have established proven ways of learning through technology, delivering an active and personalised experience to our students who are supported through our university partnership.
We will be continuing to draw on this experience to deliver courses in the autumn term using a blend of video conferencing, other remote learning technologies and some face-to-face teaching, where it is safe and important to do this. We are working hard to share expertise and taking steps to enhance the delivery of courses in this way across further and higher education, while still adhering to government guidelines.
