An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has issued a statement today that all schools and third-level colleges are to close from 6 pm this evening 12th March until 29th March in light of recent developments and to minimise further the spread of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).
There will be no classes from 6pm this evening 12th March and tomorrow 13th March to allow us some time to activate our contingency plans. Online and remote teaching will commence with effect from Monday 16th March 9 am for Higher Education. We will be in contact directly with each student to advise them of how this will work by close of business tomorrow, 13th March and your normal class time applies and attendance will be taken.
Students who are studying with Dorset College for Further Education or short courses please note that classes will re-commence week starting 30th March.
We remind all students to exercise vigilance and due care and to follow the guidelines from the Health Services Executive (HSE).
Please monitor emails from the College and main social media channels for further updates.
