Information regarding Coronavirus is constantly changing and we understand you may have concerns.

Please be assured that as a college, the health and safety of our students, staff and visitors is of critical importance.

We are committed to following the appropriate guidance issued by Public Health England and the Department for Education and continue to monitor developments as new information becomes available.

We will continue to use the college website and our social media platforms for updates.



Following the latest advice from government, we have assessed the college’s situation and made the decision to close down our campuses as of 5pm, March 24th until Monday, April 20th.

We will continue to closely monitor the situation, in line with government advice.  Please therefore continue to check our website and social media platforms for updates.

Students will continue their learner journey with us online, maintaining regular contact with their lecturers and completing assessments etc as and when requested. Our home learning page will provide advice and support on how to make the most of working from home and online working as well as provide other useful resources and support including next step guidance for current students. 


Marine Cadets  

Marine Cadets following one of our HE programs will be supported in home learning to achieve their qualifications. Arrangements will be made to complete practical and workshop activities once the college is re-opened to students.

We have made the transition to online learning.  If you are uncertain what this means for you, please contact your lecturer though Moodle or by e-mail.

In light of the latest government advice on social distancing and avoidance of small gatherings, the MCA in consultation with SQA have taken the decision to cancel the March 2020 examination dates. 

We understand this must be frustrating but we hope you understand their need to come to this decision.
