Further to the communication issued last Thursday and in response to the escalating number of new Covid-19 cases reported on a daily basis since, the Institute has decided to defer the ONSITE EXAMS scheduled for next week from 4th – 8th January inclusive.

This is based on the advice of the Chief Medical Officer who stated that “Everyone needs to stay at home other than for essential work or care.” (02-01-2021).

The deferred onsite exams will be scheduled during Semester 2 at a time when it is deemed safe to do so.

Adequate notice will be provided following consultation with the Student’s Union and other necessary stakeholders.

We regret any inconvenience this decision may cause, but please be assured it is taken in the interest of public health and the GMIT community as a whole.
