Face to face teaching and College attendance for students is suspended from 17 March 2020 onwards.

Updated: Tuesday 17 March

Following the change in Scottish and UK Government advice around the need for social distancing, Dundee and Angus College will suspend all face to face teaching and College attendance for all classes and campuses from midnight on 17 March 2020. This decision will not impact on student bursary/EMA or other payments (except travel).

  • College buildings will remain open to staff, but the Libraries, Learning Hubs, Gardyne Gym & Swim, Gardyne Theatre and Training Restaurants will be closed.
  • Students on placement should continue to attend as appropriate and follow the placement provider’s guidance on how they are managing coronavirus (COVID-19). If you are asked not to attend placement you should advise your Group Tutor. 
  • The Helping Hands Nursery in Arbroath will remain open at this stage, but this will remain under review.
  • Face to face student interviews have been cancelled (individuals affected will be notified) and the College will be in touch to confirm revised arrangements for these over the coming weeks.

From Monday 23 March, additional provision will be in place to enable students to continue studying from home where possible. You can continue to access your coursework on MyLearning using the link below. Please remember to sign in using your full College email address and password:
