Our response to Covid-19

Latest update: 20 January 2022

For week beginning Monday 24 January 2022 campuses will continue to remain open only for those classes deemed critical or essential and for new students starting January courses. You will be contacted directly by your lecturer if your class is going to be on campus. Only students instructed to do so should attend on campus. 

Libraries and canteens will be open. 

Student Advice, Student Funding and Learning Inclusion should be contacted by phone or email in the first instance. 

Please take a Lateral Flow Test prior to coming on campus, and only come on campus if you have a negative result.

We will continue to update students regularly throughout January as any guidance changes.

Glasgow Clyde College will continue to take a cautious approach to on-campus teaching during the pandemic. Whilst Covid infections and hospitalisations continue to rise this winter, we will continue to take a safe approach to on-campus activity levels and will always prioritise the health, safety and wellbeing of our students and staff. 

Further information and guidance about Covid-19 can be found on the following websites:

Please note: You should only come on campus if you have been asked to do so.

  • Most courses will have a balance of on-campus and online learning where possible 
  • You will be informed when any on-campus learning will be taking place – please check with your lecturers/tutors if you need help with your timetable
  • On-campus learning is likely to be prioritised for more vulnerable groups, critical assessments and those students requiring access to practical workshops and facilities
  • If you need support to study remotely please inform your lecturers / tutors
  • If you are coming onto campus, consideration should be given to others in the same vicinity - there is still a need to avoid crowding in areas of the campus and it may be necessary to spread activity across the week. Physical distancing of approximately 1m will be in place
  • In line with Scottish Government requirements, face coverings should be worn by students at all times unless an exemption applies 
  • Students are encouraged to use Lateral Flow Tests prior to each occasion they come on campus in order to minimise the risk of transmission of the virus. Test kits are available from college receptions and GCCSA offices at Cardonald and Langside, and we would encourage all students to get vaccinated as soon as they are able to do so. Following updated advice from NHS Test and Protect, there is no longer a requirement for consent forms in order to receive a Lateral Flow Devices (LFD) testing kit. Under no circumstances should tests be carried out on college premises 
  • The libraries  on each campus will be open when on campus access is available
  • Visit for the latest advice about protecting yourself and others this winter.
  • The College will continue with a regime of increased cleaning and hygiene measures with the regular use of hand sanitisers encouraged in all areas
  • Classrooms and workshops should be well ventilated by opening windows and doors to encourage the circulation of fresh air
