College Closure

The College continues to monitor the current outbreak of Coronavirus (Covid-19).

City of Glasgow College closed from 5pm on Tuesday 17 March and all face to face teaching was suspended with immediate effect. From there, the College successfully introduced online learning to students. 

The College is planning to welcome students to their new term on Monday 31 August with the majority of full time courses starting on campus (where it is safe to do so) and online from Monday 14 September 2020. The 2020/21 term will introduce a new blended learning and teaching approach with on-campus as well as online classes available. This follows guidance set out in the Scottish Government’s route map for easing lockdown restrictions while adhering to our commitment to deliver the best student experience possible in a safe and supportive way.

What is the best way to protect myself and others against coronavirus?

There is currently no vaccine to prevent COVID-19. The best way to prevent infection is to avoid being exposed to the virus. Key to this is good hygiene:-

  • Wash your hands with soap and water or use an alcohol-based sanitiser gel regularly throughout the day (hand sanitising gel has been provided across the college’s campuses) 
  • Catch your cough or sneeze in a tissue or bent elbow (not your hands), bin it and wash your hands
  • Wear a face covering when you're in inclosed places, such as supermarkets, public transport etc. 

Stay at home if you have coronavirus symptoms

Stay at home if you have either:-

  • a high temperature – you feel hot to touch on your chest or back
  • a new, continuous cough – this means you've started coughing repeatedly
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.

You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home.

Read the NHS advice about staying at home.
