Covid-19 related security measures that are taken by UCD Applied Language Centre

Due to essential quarantine introduced by the Irish government for people travelling to Ireland, we decided to deliver the first two weeks of Autumn Term classes online ,commencing on Monday 31st August 2020. After arriving in Ireland, students will be able to stay with a host family or in accommodation of their choice and take part in our classes. In this way, we will ensure that all of our students and staff are safe and that we comply with Covid19 safety regulations.

From the 14th September (week 3) onwards we intend to deliver all classes face to face in our centre (Currently government guidelines allow for this, however circumstances could change and we will inform you if changes to delivery are necessary). We are in the process of preparing our classrooms for your arrival to make sure that you can study on campus in safe and comfortable conditions. UCD campus gym, cafes and student restaurants will be open as usual to all students. Please bear in mind that you will be required to comply with local safety regulations and you will be asked to wear a mask where maintaining a safe social distance is not possible: in the classroom, on public transport and in the shops.
