Applied Psychology Teaching and Covid-19

For all COVID-19 general information related to the University, see the UCC information page at

Applied Psychology is committed to delivering as much teaching on campus as possible in the prevailing pandemic circumstances, always subject to public health guidelines. Lectures will commence on Monday 7th September for trainees on the Doctor of Clinical Psychology Programme and on Monday 28th September for all our other undergraduate and postgraduate programmes.

Each programme will aim to have a mix of face-to-face teaching, either with the full class in attendance or with staggered attendance (class split into groups who will attend lectures in classrooms and online on alternate days each week), and online modules.

Covid19 and the University Community

In keeping with the wider approach in society in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is recognised that the successful implementation of ‘Return to Campus’ can only be done on a cooperative basis with shared responsibility between staff and students and HEI management.

Government guidance is continually changing and it is essential that every member of the University community (staff and students) familiarises themselves with the most up-to-date available guidance.  Up to date guidance can be found on the following websites:



We all have a personal responsibility to understand how to keep ourselves and each other safe. Proper hand washing, respiratory hygiene and social distancing are more important than ever. The use of the HSE COVID-19 tracker app is also strongly recommended.
