Advice for Students

Following the recent announcement by Government that we will need to close our Colleges, we have some additional advice for students. Please read this carefully.

Since the Government's advice that people stay at home, we have been responding by developing remote working resources for the majority of our students. However, you may still have queries. Please see below for some additional advice for all of our students:

  • If you can stay at home safely, we would ask that you do so;
  • Dover Technical College, Broadstairs College, Folkestone College and Sheppey College have now closed to staff and students. If you have any queries about these closures, or if you are the child of a key worker or you are a vulnerable student and would still like to access College, you can contact your respective College via the email address or phone numbers below;
  • Our Colleges will stay open for students who cannot remain safely at home, with staff ready to help support you;
  • For students who are remaining at home, your curriculum department will be in touch with you, and will be able to give you clear instructions on how they will maintain your learning. We would expect you to keep working, and try to engage with any teaching delivered for you as much as possible

Part time and short course students:

Unfortunately we have had to postpone our upcoming short and part time courses. If you have booked onto a short course or were already attending sessions, please see below to find out more:

  • If your course has not yet started, we will defer the course start date and you will be notified when new dates have been decided. Alternatively you can request a refund if you would prefer to do so. You can do this directly through Eventbrite if that was the system you used to place your order;
  • If your course has already started and has been cancelled as a result of coronavirus, we are committed to continuing the course when we are able to do so and will notify you when your course is running again.

You can stay up to date with the latest changes via our social media platforms, and also through this webpage.

Although some of our Colleges may be closed, we are still here to support all of our students. Should you have any queries, please don't hesitate to contact our local College teams on the numbers and emails below:
