Mode of Teaching Delivery and Timetables - Department of Government and Politics

The Department of Government and Politics is committed to providing a high quality educational experience, offering our students as much face to face time as possible whilst keeping students and staff safe. To comply with government guidelines and to ensure the safety of both our students and staff, the majority of our degree programmes will be delivered in a blended fashion in 2021-2022. This means students will engage in both online learning (live online events and pre-made online content) and on-campus learning (in-person sessions at UCC).  How each programme will be delivered depends on a number of factors including the discipline being studied, the class size, external accreditation requirements and of course public health guidelines.
