Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a new respiratory illness that can affect the lung and airways.
The most common symptoms of this virus are a new, continuous cough or a high temperature.
In line with Government advice, Wiltshire College & University Centre will close all its campuses at 4pm on Friday (March 20) for the foreseeable future.
During the closure period, the College and its staff will continue to comply with all requirements to support our students, staff and the public in dealing with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.Students and parents are being contacted individually with details of how the College will continue to support them during this challenging time. Lessons will still be delivered, via our online platforms, workbooks, email and telephone, and our staff will be fully contactable during the period of closure.
If students are unwell and unable to attend online or telephone lessons, they should notify their lecturer and tutor (by email or telephone).
We are currently waiting to hear from our awarding bodies on how they will deal with exams not being taken. While we wait, it is important that students keep up to date with all work set to ensure we have enough evidence to provide the awarding bodies.
For prospective students, and existing students looking to progress within the College, we are still taking applications for all courses as normal.
All at the College fully understand this is an unsettling and unprecedented time, but we are working extremely hard to ensure that our students are fully supported to continue their learning.
The College will continue to post updates on its news page and social media platforms.
