Update - 07/01/2021 - Email from VP of Academic Affairs to Students

Dear Students

Best wishes for the New Year, and I hope Semester One assessments (be they exams or assignments) have been going well for you.  In the context of the serious escalation of the pandemic in Ireland, I also want to wish you, your friends and families a safe and healthy start to 2021. 

The situation nationally is most serious. Following the government cabinet meeting yesterday, the minister responsible for Higher Education, Simon Harris issued a statement. In it, he indicated that institutions would use their discretion and take such measures as are appropriate to align with the government approach to controlling the level of infection nationally. 

None of us would have wanted to be in this situation, but it is important that we take necessary action. I am writing to you to provide clarity on measures DCU is taking in this new context.

Semester Two will start as planned on January 18th. Most teaching activities were scheduled to be online and these will go ahead.  Starting the semester on time will maximise the teaching and learning time available, which may be important given the high level of uncertainty as to how the public health situation will evolve. 

No on-campus teaching will take place in the first four weeks of Semester Two (January 18th – February 13th). This impacts all planned teaching activities on campus including practicals, clinical skills and laboratory sessions. This measure will allow more students and staff to stay at home through these critical weeks. Every effort will be made to ensure that necessary sessions do take place later in the semester by which time hopefully the situation will have improved.

Note that all DCU staff who can work from home have been advised that they should do so.

There may be some changes to published timetables and the academic calendar. For example, some programmes which had planned campus activities may concentrate specific teaching into the early part of the semester in order to free up more time for campus activities later, and we may consider encroaching on the planned break if circumstances allow and it is needed. 

***End***


Update - 22/09/2020 

Plans are in place for the university to start the 2020/21 academic year. All of our plans are based on a conservative 2 metre social distancing protocol, consistent with Level 3 restrictions on the Government’s framework. However, in response to Friday’s request from Minister Simon Harris that Higher Education Institutions add further measures, our plans for the coming few weeks are being adapted. 

We had planned to use our campuses as much as possible for teaching, and we will revert to that approach as quickly as we can when restrictions are eased. However, the priority now is for everyone to support efforts to reduce the number of COVID 19 cases. 

Most teaching will move online for the period of the heightened level of restrictions, and so campus time indicated in the information which students received at the beginning of this month may reduce.   

Some campus teaching and research will go ahead: 

  • Teaching activities on campus will be limited to those considered necessary to the programme or specific student group and will be carried out in safe environments, with controlled numbers. Some further details by Faculty are given below.

  • Research students who need to be on campus to do their work effectively can attend campus, subject to compliance with all of the safety protocols in place.   

  • Please note that the government has confirmed that education is a priority, and so travel for the purposes of working or studying in DCU is allowed, including travel by public transport. 

  • Face coverings will be required within all buildings on campus. 

  • If you are not able to attend scheduled campus classes for reasons to do with your health, or that of a member of your household, or if you are unable to wear a face covering please let us know by filling in this form.

Teaching from October 5th

Once finalised, Programme Chairs will confirm arrangements to each class group for whom plans have changed, but the following is indicative of the impact of the changes in arrangements over this period:

DCU Institute of Education

Undergraduate programmes: Planned campus activities for students on the Bachelor of Education, the Bachelor of Religious Education and Bachelor of Early Childhood Education programmes will go ahead, because they are practical, skills or workshop based. Bachelor of Science in Education and Training, and Bachelor of Education (Languages) will be online only over the period of additional restrictions.  

Postgraduate Taught Programmes: Plans for on campus activities for the Professional Masters in Education Primary will go ahead; all other programmes will be online only for the period of additional restrictions. 

Faculty of Engineering and Computing

Undergraduate programmes: Campus teaching will be reduced to approximately half of that scheduled for the first three weeks of semester initially. Some practical, laboratory and project sessions will go ahead, but other work will be moved online. There will be no change to the specific day of the week indicated to students for campus classes, but attendance will not necessarily be required on all of these days. 

Postgraduate Taught Programmes: These are fully online for Semester 1, as originally planned.

Faculty of Science and Health 

Undergraduate programmes: All of the practical, laboratory, project and skills training sessions will go ahead on campus, but other work will be moved online. There will be no change to the specific day of the week indicated to students for campus classes, but attendance will not necessarily be required on all of these days over the period of enhanced restrictions. 

Nursing Placements: Students currently on placement or due to commence placement on September 21st should continue with their placement as planned.  

Postgraduate Programmes: With the exception of practical sessions in the psychology programmes which will go ahead on campus, all teaching and learning activities will be offered online for the first semester.

DCU Business School 

Undergraduate programmes: Teaching and learning activities previously scheduled to take place on campus (including first year induction scheduled for the week of 28th September) will move online.

INTRA: Students on INTRA should follow the guidance of their employers.

Postgraduate Programmes: Teaching and learning activities previously scheduled to take place on campus will move online.

Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences  

Undergraduate programmes: Campus teaching will be reduced to the minimum with most teaching, previously planned for on-campus delivery moved online.  Some elements which cannot be completed remotely, will go ahead on campus - for final year students in our degree programmes in Journalism, Multimedia, and Communications Studies and also for some Jazz Performance modules across the years.   

Postgraduate Programmes:  Many programmes have indicated since early summer that they will be delivered fully online and those arrangements will not change.  The MA in Journalism, the MSc in Emerging Media and the MA in History programmes will have some on-campus classes for activities that cannot be completed remotely.


Update - 18/09/2020

Indicative Timetables for first years can be viewed at the following link.  

For each programme, the expected times, days and weeks for both campus based and online classes/activities are displayed.  Campus based classes and activities are dependent on government health advice.  In the event of a lockdown, as many activities as possible will move online and others may be rescheduled or adapted.

 


Update - 11/09/2020

Continuing Students

Indicative timetables were emailed directly to returning DCU undergrad students last week. These timetables were sent to your DCU email address. The indicative timetables show the number of days that on campus activities are planned for your class across Semester 1 as part of the hybrid learning model, and under current public health guidelines.  

Finalised and detailed timetables for campus and online teaching for Semester 1 will be made available before or during the week of September 28th, and indicative schedules for Semester 2 will follow later in the year. 

Students from all faculties including Engineering and Computing, Science and Health, Humanities and Social Sciences, the Business School, and the Institute of Education (with the exception of BEd students who will receive their timetable in the coming days) should now have had their indicative timetables emailed to them.

Any student who hasn't received the email should contact their programme chair directly to request an update.  

Communication with returning postgraduate students is being done separately by programme chairs.

Incoming 1st year students

The University has adopted a hybrid approach to teaching delivery for the coming academic year. Students will attend campus for face-to-face laboratory classes, practical sessions and small group interactions (e.g. tutorials and seminars). This on campus activity will be complemented by online teaching and learning and guided independent study.
