Return to Campus COVID-19 Protocols
Thank you for complying with our COVID-19 protocols while on campus, including:
- wearing your mask inside the buildings at all times
- wiping your desk before sitting at it and also after your lecture
- only removing your maks (if you wish to) while you maintain two-meter social distnacing and are seated at your desk
- maintaining a two-metre social distance at all times outside the lecture room
Let’s all work together to stay safe!
Finally, in order to allow some learners to undertake the programme remotely, we will be recording all lectures. They will be available for review on the appropriate Moodle subject page within 24 hours.
Griffith College’s lectures commencing Monday, 12th October 2020
Updated: 23 September, 12:08
Lectures for all day, part-time and blended academic programmes will commence on Monday, 12th October 2020.
Induction for new learners will be scheduled for the week beginning Monday 5th October 2020.
Full-Time Students (new and returning)
Lectures will be facilitated on campus with learners attending a minimum of 50% of lectures in-person (as scheduled and advised by their Faculty) and the remaining lectures taking place remotely via live stream. This learning model ensures compliance with social distancing, on-campus attendance and online engagement. All lectures on your programme will also be captured and recorded to Moodle should you be unable to attend either the on-campus or live-streamed lectures.
The engaging hybrid learning model may vary from programme to programme, and applicants are welcome to contact the admissions team or their programme director for programme-specific information.
Learners who are in Ireland (who do not need a study visa) will have the option to attend live lectures online if they wish to do so.
Our International learners who are beginning their programme from their home country will be able to access all live lectures online as they wait to travel to Ireland, then they will observe ‘restricted movement’ (this is the new term from the HSE which effectively replaces self-isolation - for further details on restricted movement please click here) and join physical classes when medically approved to do so.
Part-Time Students (new and returning)
Lectures will be facilitated on campus with learners able to elect to attend face-to-face lectures or to attend remotely via live stream. This learning model ensures compliance with social distancing, on-campus attendance and online engagement. All lectures on your programme will also be captured and recorded to Moodle should you be unable to attend the on-campus or live-streamed lectures.
We understand that part-time learners will require flexibility, so faculties will work with each cohort to identify a suitable balance between on-campus/face-to-face learning and online delivery.
Blended Students (new and returning)
Live days will be held on campus, with appropriate precautions taken to ensure all participants are socially distanced. For learners unable to attend in person, a live stream option will be available. In addition, all live days will be captured and recorded to Moodle should you be unable to attend the on-campus or live-streamed lectures.
On Campus (all students)
Our facilities management and housekeeping departments have been working diligently to prepare for the reopening of the College with the safety and wellbeing of our learners, staff, residents and community as a top priority. There will be increased hygiene points and sneeze screens. Lecture rooms, labs and practical spaces are being set up to accommodate prevailing social distancing guidelines.
We wish to provide as much flexibility as possible to learners, so all lectures will be delivered in-person in lecture rooms along with being live-streamed and also recorded for your convenience.
We will continue to keep you updated over the coming weeks, so for now please enjoy the rest of the summer period and we look forward to welcoming you back on campus, in person, on Monday, 12th October 2020.
