Student Information

On-campus attendance – STUDENT UPDATE – August 2021
We look forward to welcoming you on campus for the new academic year 2021/22.

Additional information regarding your on-campus attendance to assist you in planning your accommodation/ travel arrangements is now available.

The information below details our current intentions for semester 1 but please be aware that these may need to change if the Public Health Guidance changes.  Please note that lectures/ labs will chiefly be scheduled Monday to Thursday until 6 and Monday to Friday until 5.

A small number of programmes have scheduled classes after 6 pm. Timetables will be reviewed by the respective Departments prior to being finalised and issued. We will review the quantum of on-campus learning after the first 6 weeks with the intention of adjusting the quantum upwards if the Public Health guidelines at that time permit it.  We may need to schedule lectures after 6 pm to facilitate increased on-campus attendance in a safe manner.

Students on programmes in the Faculty of Business and Social Science should expect to be on campus 4-5 days per week as their programmes will be chiefly on campus. Please note we will phase in the commencement of on-campus attendance and it may be 3 weeks before all programmes of the Faculty are on campus.

Students of YAADA will have their programmes essentially all delivered on campus. This includes programmes such as Architecture, Writing & Literature; Art & Design etc.

Students on Computing & Electronics programmes will have 3-5 days on-campus labs/teaching.

Mechanical & Manufacturing Engineering will have a combination of remote lectures and on-campus practical 3-4 days per week.

Students studying Mechatronic Engineering will have a mixture of both remote and on-campus activities with on-campus activity 3 days per week.

Civil and Construction Engineering programmes will have workshops/ labs on campus and will be on campus an average of 2-3 days per week.

Students on the Quantity Surveying programmes should plan for 2 days on campus per week.

Faculty of Science:  Students will have on-campus /Labs/tutorials/ Practical’s workshops 2-3 days per week and lectures remotely.  Some labs will operate at 50% student capacity initially. The timetable will provide you with exact specifics.

The success of the return to campus will depend on all of us taking personal responsibility for our behaviour both on and off-campus. I would strongly recommend that you avail of the opportunity to receive a vaccine in order to protect yourself, your peers, staff of the Institute and the wider community of Sligo.

You will be advised of the public health measures being put in place for the next academic year closer to the beginning of teaching.

STUDENT HEALTH

We are ready to give you any support you need during these challenging times. Your Health Service may look a bit different this year as we lean towards virtual medicine for the protection of all.

A virtual clinic is a consultation with the nurse or doctor by phone or video call (using Microsoft Teams) instead of a face-to-face meeting. If it is medically required for you to attend the Health Service, this can be organised for you.  Click here to find out how to make an appointment with the Health Service or have Covid-19 Symptoms.
