GMIT is planning for blended delivery to be the normal mode of teaching and learning for Semester 1.
Lifelong learning programmes are planned with "remote delivery" of classes, which will be carried out within existing blended programme delivery models and times.
This will also accommodate some level of classroom delivery if Covid-19 restrictions allow later in the academic year.
GMIT will continue to adhere to Government guidelines to ensure the safety of students, staff and the wider community.
