Winter 2021 semester at Marine Institute
In early October, the Marine Institute announced the Winter 2021 academic semester will remain primarily remote and that any on-campus activity will occur in a measured and safe manner, adhering to the provincial government’s COVID-19 Alert Level System and aligning with provincial public health directives.
For students with essential practical components in their programs, a number of practical hands-on activities will be held on campus, with appropriate health and safety measures in place, for the Winter 2021 semester.
As in the Fall 2020 semester, some cohorts of some programs will continue to be delivered entirely remotely. However, most programs will be offered in blended delivery including remote classes, essential on-campus specialized labs and workshops to ensure students can meet the academic requirements of their programs.
Each school has developed specific plans for each program and cohort and will communicate the details directly to students via specific messaging and town halls.
Students are encouraged to attend their School’s town hall to stay informed about the delivery of their programs this winter, requirements for health and safety on campus, and to ask any questions that they may have.
The Marine Institute also has a dedicated email for concerns firstname.lastname@example.org that is monitored daily and provides a quick accessible touch point if students are unsure where to direct a question or concern.
The Marine Institute remains committed to supporting our students, no matter where or how they are studying and to ensuring students have the best possible learning experience.
Memorial University and the Marine Institute have developed a comprehensive set of guiding principles, safety plans and protocols to best ensure the physical and psychological health and safety of our students, faculty and staff. We also continue to follow the most up-to-date advice provided by the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador and the Government of Canada on COVID-19 response.
