New Academic Year 2020/21
LYIT will welcome 4,500 students in September 2020, with all full-time programmes scheduled to commence on Monday 28 September. A range of measures to combat the Covid-19 virus pandemic will continue into the new academic year.Subject to public health advice we plan to move towards maximising onsite provision and returning to normal schedules over the course of the academic year. During this academic year we will adopt a blended learning model with a combination of remote/online learning and face-to-face delivery. LYIT’s ambition is to provide the maximum possible face-to-face delivery of programmes, particularly for first year students, with the aim of achieving at least 50% on campus delivery.Different programmes will have delivery models to facilitate the optimal student engagement experience. The 2020/21 calendar is now available.
“We in the Students’ Union have been working closely with LYIT management to plan for the new academic year. We will work together to make sure that students have a safe and rewarding experience this academic year and that students can enjoy participation in sports clubs and societies and avail of the full range of supports and services which LYIT has to offer” – Mary Hernandez, Students’ Union President 2020/21.
“We look forward to the return of our current students and welcoming around 1,100 new first years on 28 September, preceded by registration and induction. The health, safety and wellbeing of our students and staff is of paramount importance to us. We will do everything we can to preserve an authentic on-campus student experience and to ensure the best possible learning experience for new and returning students.” – Paul Hannigan, President.
