2021-2022 Dates

The year will start with online orientation on the Monday 20th September. 

See link below which we understand will be updated in the coming weeks:

Teaching will commence on Monday 27th September 2021, a week later than initially planned. This short delay is necessary following a decision by the Department of Education to delay the release of Leaving Certificate results and to allow the necessary time for the processing and acceptance of CAO offers for students. Any time that has been lost by the delay will be made up later in the academic year.

This is an outline of the plans for starting the next academic year, based on the information we have at present. If there are any changes to these plans, that are outside our control, we will inform you immediately.

Year 1 - 2021/22

Provisional Overview. Planning is progressing well in terms of providing a blend of online and in-person teaching for students.  Students will be allocated to defined pods/groups for teaching activities again this year in order minimize movement between pods which, unfortunately, may reduce the level of choice in student selected elements of the programme. In line with College guidelines strict protocols will be in place around sign-in for teaching activities for the purposes of contact tracing.
