Griffith College’s key update

Updated: 1 January 2021, 16:30 

As Ireland is currently in level 5 COVID-19 restrictions, to keep everyone safe, the College will be following government requirements for higher education by delivering the remainder of semester 1 as much as possible online.

This means that faculties will deliver their lectures online without on-campus attendance. Teaching schedules will not be altered with classes taking place at the same time as previously scheduled. If your programme has specific additional requirements, your faculty will contact you directly.

Special Notice for Week Commencing Monday 4th January to Friday 8th January

For the week of January 4th to January 8th, classes requiring labs, practical or studio sessions will be deferred so that lecturers and learners are not required to attend the campus.

Your faculty will be in touch soon regarding the rescheduling of any such sessions and any related submission dates.

Online lectures will continue to be delivered during the week of January 4th to January 8th as originally scheduled.

Learners wishing to access labs and studios to advance their studies during this first week of 2021 may continue to do so in accordance with agreed booking procedures and the college’s established COVID-19 safety procedures.

The college hugely appreciates your continued support, flexibility, patience and understanding.

We’re all looking forward to better times ahead in 2021 as the vaccine is rolled out and we return to college life as it’s meant to be.

On 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 mask (if you wish to) while you maintain two-meter social distancing 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.

How to prepare for hybrid learning

Griffith College will be delivering all courses using a hybrid learning model in Semester 1, giving our students the option of attending classes on campus and in person – or by joining those same lectures remotely, via the Zoom classroom. You can see a video guide to Griffith Hybrid at the right.

To prepare for this new mode of learning please follow the guides and instruction on the Remote Learners page.
